Ai WeiWei's "Bang" Installation Features 886 Wooden Stools

Ai WeiWei's "Bang" Installation Features 886 Wooden Stools | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

As part of the 2013 Venice Art Biennale, Chinese artist Ai WeiWei has created a new installation made of 886 three-legged wooden stools produced by traditional chinese craftsmen. The piece titled "Bang" is inspired by the artistic and cultural traditions of China, where every family had at least one stool, which served all sorts of domestic purposes and was passed on from generation to generation. Here the single stool can be seen as a metaphor for "the individual and its relation to an overarching and excessive system in a postmodern world developing at lightning speed."
