Vienna: Brian Jungen

Brian Jungen (b. 1970) ingeniously repurposes found objects, disassembling and reassembling them into spectacular sculptures, which often reference Aboriginal traditions and cultures. Vienna, thethird in a series of whale sculptures created by the artist since 2000, is a comment on consumerism and disposable culture as well as preservation and museum displays. It is an exploration of sculptural form generated by plastic lawn chairs and the cross-cultural intersections of Aboriginal and Western cultures.

Brian Jungen was the winner of the inaugural Sobey Art Award in 2002 and the 2010 Gershon Iskowitz Prize.
