Have been seeing Ai WeiWei‘s work around on blogs and think it should be a part of my + and – diary. See above images of the projects that are compelling, yet not compelling. The concepts are beautiful but there is something that makes me uncertain whether this work is really that poetic to me. Table with Three Legs is by far my favourite, it has humor, poetry, strange, beauty. Regardless of this I would love to see these pieces live.
The exhibition Ai Weiwei: Four Movements opened in London at Phillips de Pury & Company, it will be on view through March 28th. Go see it if you are in London.
