Tate Modern| The Unilever Series: Ai Weiwei.
Sometime ago, i went to see Ai weiwei’s art work @ Tate. Tate Modern is one of the galleries that i must give a visit every year, especially their The Unilever Series. Think so far, I have only missed the red sunlights!
I have to admit, Ai weiwei was a stranger to me at first when it was annouced who’s next? Not until i google and read his wiki/bio online. I am one of those individual that if i found a topic or an individual interesting, i will actually read up about it. It is quite interesting to see that many sunflower seeds at once. I am quite gutted that i didn’t visit Tate early enough to step and touch it.
Ai weiwei wants to draw our attention to the ‘Make in China’. I personally think is it a question with depth itself, does Make in china = poor quality? has yet this view point changed? why would consumer think the product was poorly made, due to what!? …. alot of questions! Hard!
To be honest, I do wonder if anyone will think that far after looking at this art work? Art work itself is very debatable, I have always wonder why would you call any painting with black canvas and a white dot, a piece of art? even one year old can do that. lol. I personally think looking at art work require a little imagination and personal experience to grasp the meaning of the art work….. I once again, really misses my drawing pencil, blank canvas and paint brushes!
Exhibition till 2nd May, you better be quick! Now…. I need a buddy to go Saatchi gallery with me.
