Julia Chiang with The Standard All For You

All For You, is a new limited edition piece, exclusively available at The Standard, by artist Julia Chiang. A unique edition of 50 palm-sized apples, each handmade of delicate porcelain and glazed a rich glossy red, the apples could potentially be in a state of oozing, excreting, sweating, tearing, or spurting. The apple as a symbol for desire as well as an icon for her home, NYC. Each piece comes tucked into a special wooden box that’s been burned with the details of the edition. The box is signed and numbered, beautiful as a set.

Along with the launch of the edition, Julia has created a site-specific installation at The Standard Shop, NYC opening February 12th, 2010. She’s written the title of the edition, with Ring Pop candy, along an interior wall of the shop. The candy is left to melt over time, constantly transforming, slowly disappearing, while leaving a trace and history with every single drip.


Julia has lived and worked in NY for over 10 years. She was born in Atlantic City, NJ and believes she has a bit of clairvoyance and luck in her bones. She recently returned from an artist residency in the Colorado mountains and was a nominee for The Rema Hort Mann Foundation art grant. She has exhibited her work at places such as: Deitch Projects, The New Museum, OHWOW in Miami, Michael Steinberg Fine Art, Tina Kim Gallery, Printed Matter & in the Kantor/Feuer Window.
