Zodiac Heads

Ai Weiwei
Somerset House

This post is being reposted (shorter version) as the original got deleted by Bloggers.

At the fabulous Somerset House the private view of Ai Weiwei statues enfolded Wednesday night. 12 bronze animal heads each weighing 363 kg. is a great contemporary addition to a legendary edifice.
With a fancy guest list, great cheese and charcuterie, wine and Beer service I felt something was missing.
Like we were all waiting for some sign of being together for the missing Artist.
Ai Weiwei has been missing for 6 weeks now and I thing the Somerset House left out an opportunity to make a happening of this event.

But, please go and see the sculptures they are fabulous.
