Catalogue Note

“People think I’m interested in Chinese traditions, which isn’t true. I’m more interested in our past human behaviour and our understanding of values, and I explore this by dealing with some existing readymade concept that everybody accepts as untouchable or fixed” (Ai WeiWei in conversation with Juliet Bingham and Marko Daniel, in: ‘A Conversation between Ai Wei Wei, Juliet Bingham and Marko Daniel, 31 May and 1 June 2010, Beijing’, Exh. Cat., London, Tate Modern, Sunflower Seeds, 2010, pp. 89-92),
