Concrete Forest is a series of 36 concrete busts by Ah Xian that won the last Clemenger Prize in 2009, a prestigious invitation-only art prize held at the National Gallery of Victoria.

Working with materials as diverse as cloisonné, porcelain, concrete, fibreglass, bronze and, most recently, latex, Chinese-Australian artist Ah Xian has won major sculpture prizes and much acclaim here in Australia, his adopted home for the last 25 years, yet he is still not represented by a commercial gallery. And in his former homeland of China, where he has a studio within Beijing’s Songzhuang artist community, he is barely known and has never been exhibited there.

It is presented as 36 single photos in a frame as well as 1 frame of Chinese/English bilingual poetry text only.
