Ai WeiWei

Talked about Virgo artist Ai WeiWei of China in a previous post. An unveiling of WeiWei's latest work in New York has been post-poned because of the death of bin Laden. The work was due to be unveiled today. Very interesting that it is called "Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads." It's a set of 12 sculptures that represent the Chinese Zodiac. WeiWei refers back to an historical pillaging by foreigners in China back in 1860. Two heads showed up at auction somewhere (sorry, can't remember which auction house). So, the piece represents the horrors of pillaging.

He also has set the work into modern New York because he feels that New York, with its wide ethnic variety, comes closest to showing how the entire Zodiac interacts.


WeiWei hasn't been heard from since his April 3 arrest. One article I read has said that under torture he confessed to Tax Evasion. He was arrested under suspicion that he was helping to plan a rebellion.

If anybody reads this please say a prayer for Ai WeiWei's health and for his release.
