Ai Wei Wei – Issues in Place

Maps about resources and identity of place.

Map of China depicting the demands for baby formula.

Two additional Maps of China, both constructed from salvaged wood from destroyed temples.

 

A final map of the world made from cloth cut and laid in stacks.

“China is blindly producing for the demands of the market… My work very much relates to this blind production of things. I’m part of it, which is a bit of a nonsense.”

– Ai Weiwei
