Synopsis
This exhibition catalog of the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei (China, 1957), shows evidence of the growing international interest in his artistic career. Through photography, sculpture, architecture, installations and his blog, Weiwei has become an obligatory reference for other artists and particularly for contemporary Chinese art. The exhibition, Ways Beyond Art, shows legendary works such as Bubbles, The Wave and The Coca-cola Vase. Each piece has been produced from the kilns which Weiwei decided to build for firing his own work. This last, Coca-cola Vase, belongs to a series which reproduces forms of Neolithic and Dynastic Chinese antique vases with the coca-cola logo stamped on their exterior. The work is a demonstration of the irony of the artist which unites in the same object tradition Chinese culture (an ingredient which carries enormous weight in the artistic production of that country) and simultaneously and provocatively questions the way in which Chinese society is confronting its recent convergence with the West.
