London, November 2023 – January 2024

Ai Weiwei

In a distinctly Duchampian gesture – combining playfulness with the readymade – Ai Weiwei has used Lego bricks to make new works that comment on today’s society and the art of the past. His Untitled (After Van Gogh) was inspired by an image of the 2019 locust plague in Pakistan which reminded him of van Gogh’s oil painting Le Semeur au Soleil Couchant,1888. Ai has also created portraits, images from his own personal history and reimaginings of his sculptural works using Lego as a medium to create images which critique and question our present moment.
