Adam McEwen:

    Soy Sauce

    5.25 x 2.5 x 2.5 inches
    Edition of 20

    Adam McEwen's work resides somewhere between the celebratory and funereal. After writing obituaries for the Daily Telegraph in London, he began producing obituaries of living subjects such as Bill Clinton and Jeff Koons, thus highlighting the blurred line between history and fiction. He is known for paintings employing wads of chewing gum on canvas that reference aerial images of bombed German cities and for machined graphite sculptures of such banal objects as a water cooler or this scale reproduction of the iconic Kikkoman soy sauce bottle produced by SculptureCenter. Soy Sauce is an edition of 20 solid graphite sculptures.

    McEwen's work has been included in numerous group shows at major art institutions including Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2015); New Museum, New York (2010); Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2010, traveled to Guggenheim Bilbao, Spain); and MoMA PS1, New York (2006), among others. His work is included in many notable collections, including The Rubell Family Collection, Miami; Julia Stoschek Collection, Düsseldorf; The Brant Foundation Art Study Center, Greenwich; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museum, Scotland; Jumex Collection, Mexico City; de la Cruz Collection, Miami; and Arts Council Collection, England. Adam McEwen is a member of SculptureCenter's Board of Trustees.
