Saw Ai Weiwei at the @Marcianoartfoundation today as a surprise from Cari. It was moving from the micro to the macro scale. He worked with kite makers to build an entire room of Chinese creatures from the Shanhaijing - or Classic of Mountains and Seas - from bamboo and silk. All flying above a life boat with humanoids aboard, en route to a new homeland. A interpretation of Ďrefugee.í-These beasts were used to explain natural phenom like the lunar cycle. Iíve always loved the idea of leviathans, sea monsters, and other beasts that lurked over the horizon to consume us or at least our fears whole. Plus, the setting for the art is outstanding as the Marciano is in an old Masonic Temple. Also, the Catherine Opie collection is superb!-See more in my stories.
