    ‘Rent’—Rent Collection Yard, 2007 is the title of the largest and most complex sculptural installation Li Zhanyang has ever created. Taking 18 months of production after nearly a decade of conceptual incubation, Li Zhanyang’s ‘Rent’—Rent Collection Yard is a humorous and subjective look at the Chinese contemporary art scene. The 34 life-size colored fiberglass figures of this installation are modeled after international celebrities of the art world. They include Chinese and Western artists, curators, collectors, gallery owners, gallery assistants, and art students. The congregation is part of a broader narrative, revealing the latent conflicts and power relations in the art world.
