Fruit
2016

Bronze, James grieve apple tree

Installed at Cass Sculpture Foundation, West Sussex, England


Wang Sishun has planted a local fruit tree at Cass Sculpture Foundation, and will cast the fruits into bronze each subsequent year. There will be an annual harvest of the fruit, resulting in a bronze piece of work every year.It is important to Wang Sishun that the fruit tree is never the same annually, meaning that the bronze work will also never be the same, as the weather and temperature effects the size and the number of fruits.
