Weiwei – Bicycles Forever!

This is a piece from the Bicycles Forever installation by Ai Weiwei . It was created by joining and stacking 1,200 half bikes (frame, fork and wheels) to give the appearance of a moving abstract shape.  This piece was once called the Kingdom of Bikes because it was in some ways Weiwei’s interpretation of the Chinese society. This installation was installed at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum.  I am so intrigued by Weiwei. I have never heard of him or his works until we discussed him in class.  I was so drawn to his story and his art. He is one of my new favorite artists.
