Oil Drum Installations
Qie Zhijie's 'Oil Can Dragon' and 'Cash Cow' Use Tin Trash Bins

Qie Zhijie’s ‘Oil Can Dragon’ and ‘Cash Cow’ are crafted of cut oil barrel drums. The towering installations are made in the images of trees and dragons, playing up on the controversial relationship between the petrol industry and nature.

Zhijie’s sculptures feature gilded branches, flaring nostrils and bits of fake flame. The stacked tin cans brandish red, blue and orange colors, making no attempt to hide the rust of the tin materials.

The use of garbage elements within the installation sphere is catching on in the art world. As the concept of disposability becomes progressively taboo on the sustainable front, creative minds are in turn working pieces that would otherwise be thrown out into their contemporary projects.
