What people are saying:

This artwork is a legacy of the 2009-2011 Vancouver Biennale exhibition. The artist, Yue Minjun, is a leading figure of Cynical Realism, a contemporary Chinese artistic movement that emerged in response to the 1989 demonstrations in Tiananmen Square. Yu Minjun uses humour, cynicism, repetition, and an emphasis on the individual to engage viewers and create dialogue.The sculpture was originally conceived as a linear installation and exhibited at the Beijing Museum of Contemporary Art. The Vancouve Biennale provided the artist the opportunity to reinterpret the work for its new site in English Bay. In his reimagining, Yue Minjun reordered the figures to create a maze, and titled the work: A-maze-ing Laughter.
