Ai Weiwei| Bubble | Meile | Watson Island, MacArthur Causeway, Miami

--Ai Weiwei (1957, Beijing), lives and works in Beijing.

The vast installation ‘Bubble’ by Ai Weiwei is a site-specific work of one hundred ceramic blue bubbles spread over an area of 600 square meters at Island Gardens. The functional dimensions of the individual objects in the ‘Bubble’ installation encourage viewers to appropriate the artwork in a playful and hands-on way.
Experimenting with the material properties of porcelain, a Chinese invention now almost synonymous with China, has been an important aspect in Ai Weiwei’s oeuvre (SEE WORKSHOP).
Ai Weiwei's works are often translations of either artifacts from Chinese tradition or items taken from the country's everyday modern culture.
