Hanging Man in Porcelain represents several key aspects of Ai Weiwei’s work, including the use of finely-crafted woodwork and porcelain, as well conceptual references to Marcel Duchamp. This particular piece relates to Ai Weiwei’s 1985 portrait of Duchamp, which was crafted out of a bent wire hanger. In this work from 2009, Ai Weiwei alludes to his 1985 portrait of Duchamp, however this time the hanger is crafted in silver and glazed on top of porcelain.
