Can Sun

Can Sun's works mainly focus on the absurdity of the world and the relationship between people by taking daily objects that people tend to ignore as the subject of creation. Through a process of recontextualisation, Sun transforms daily objects into playful and self-mocking sculptures. This kind of humour is not only an acknowledgement of the absurdity of the world but also a revolt against it.
