Idea Code 15541 $51.50
Ai Weiwei’s work is characterised by its union between opposing paradigms of creation: the Western avant-garde art, comprising the radical destruction of tradition and break with the past to create space for new thinking, and the classical Chinese approach, which upholds tradition and therefore artistic creation as a continuous process fed by an immense culture. Published by the CAC Málaga on the occasion of the museum’s hosting an installation created by Ai Weiwei, this volume and its subject serve to again evoke this dual dichotomy between tradition and modernity, East and West. The twelve bronze busts, each four metres high, are inspired by the Chinese zodiac.
