Ai Weiwei’s Playful Bamboo and Paper Kite Installation at Le Bon Marché

weiwei4

“Er Xi” (or “child’s play”) sees Ai Weiwei take on ancient Chinese folktales and traditional kite making techniques for the Le Bon Marché in Paris. The whimsical display covers three areas of the iconic department store, helping the contemporary (and sometimes controversial) artist/activist reach a different kind of audience. In addition to the storybook motif, Ai Weiwei incorporates narrative elements from various artistic movements, historical events, as well as his past body of work. Images below!

R.I.P. Prodigy

Listening to this Shlohmo remix of Shook Ones on repeat in memory of Prodigy. The track is from Shlohmo’s summer mix for Sneeze Mag, the whole thing is worth a listen.
