Ai Weiwei: Forever Bicycles

  • Posted by SHFT on October 13, 2013 in Art
  • Superstar contemporary artist Ai Weiwei unveiled the latest rendition of his incredible bicycle sculpture last weekend in Toronto. "Forever Bicycles" is the centerpiece of this year's Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, the annual all-night art event that takes over the streets of the city. This marks the first time that the Chinese dissident artist has shown the installation in public, outdoor space. With 3,144 bicycles used to make a structure 100 x 30 feet in size, it's also the largest one he has shown.

    Lit up in spectacular blue and pink lights, the stationary layers of bikes evoke a blurry sense of movement. Visitors are invited to walk beneath the colossal installation and take it in from below and within. "Forever Bicycles" is showing at Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square until October 27.
