ABOUT THE WORK:
Ai Weiwei reflects on his life and work through the Chinese art of papercutting in this limited-edition portfolio. Meticulously cut in large-format, coloured fine-art paper, each of the eight pieces represents a decisive moment within the artist’s oeuvre—from his time in New York in the ’80s, his exploration of Chinese crafts in Beijing in the ’90s, to the political activism of his recent work—offering a beautiful, personal retrospective in a unique format.
