Hiro Ando
A Pandasan's Lustrous Charm : Argentum Radiance

2011

About the Item

2011 - 8 Editions mix media resin and diamondsstrass 39 1/3 × 35 4/10 × 35 4/10 in - 100 × 90 × 90 cm The artwork is signed by the Artist , carved with edition number and date under the base The artwork come accompanied with a formal Certificate of Authenticity issued by the studio of the Artist and signed by the Artist Series "Celestial Guardians : Shimmering Crystal Chronicles" The sculpture by Hiro Ando, adorned with archivally hand-applied, shimmering crystals, serves as a captivating exploration of multifaceted themes blending luxury, status, tradition, kitsch, and the dynamic interplay between high and low art. This visually striking piece is a testament to Ando's ability to seamlessly merge diverse elements, creating a narrative that resonates with cultural and artistic contrasts. Ando's choice of a panda as the central motif introduces a whimsical touch, symbolizing both cultural heritage and contemporary aesthetics. The panda becomes a canvas for Ando's exploration of societal values and perceptions. By covering the sculpture entirely with crystals, he transforms the familiar into something extraordinary, challenging conventional notions of art and cultural symbolism. The shimmering crystals, imitating diamonds, inject a sense of opulence and luxury into the artwork. This deliberate juxtaposition of a traditionally humble figure like the panda with the extravagance of crystals prompts contemplation on societal values and the evolving nature of cultural symbols. Ando plays with the concept of value, inviting viewers to question the authenticity of luxury and the significance we attribute to certain materials. The use of crystals also introduces a layer of kitsch, a form of art that revels in the ostentatious and the exaggerated. Ando's deliberate embrace of kitsch challenges the boundaries of taste and aesthetic norms, inviting viewers to reassess their preconceived notions about what constitutes "high" or "low" art. Moreover, the sculpture becomes a dynamic commentary on the intersection of tradition and modernity. The panda, deeply rooted in Japanese culture, undergoes a contemporary transformation through the application of crystals. This fusion of tradition and modernity creates a dialogue about cultural evolution, adaptation, and the role of art in reflecting and shaping societal values. In essence, Ando's crystalline panda sculpture transcends its materiality, becoming a thought-provoking exploration of cultural symbols, societal values, and the ever-shifting boundaries of art. Through his unique blend of elements, Ando invites viewers to engage in a visual and conceptual journey that challenges perceptions and prompts a deeper reflection on the complex interplay of tradition, luxury, and artistic expression.
