Jackie Chan Chopsticks Portrait

This piece was commissioned by Jackie Chan.

This art installation is a tribute to the life, art and cultural significance of Jackie Chan. I spent a month collecting 64,000 chopsticks in Zhejiang. I tied them into different bundle sizes with strings, and then hung them on a steel frame. This was a hanging piece that had to be suspended with steel cables, so I had to make sure that it was structurally stable enough to carry that many chopsticks. It was Jackie’s 60th birthday so I also hung 60 bamboo chopstick holders filled with skewers that formed the word ‘Long’, meaning ‘Dragon’, which is the translation of Jackie’s name in Chinese.
