Evidence 

Renowned Chinese artist and political dissident Ai Weiwei has just launched his largest solo exhibition to date, calledEvidence, in Berlin’s Martin-Gropius-Bau. The show is expansive, sprawling across 3,000 square meters and 18 rooms. The centerpiece of the exhibit is an installation called Stools, which features a staggering number of 6,000 wooden stools arranged in the atrium. The stools, collected from rural villages across northern China, date back to the Ming and Qing dynasties as well as the Republican period, expressing the centuries-old aesthetic and daily lifestyle of rural China. Packed tightly together on the floor of the atrium, the stools form a colossal and interlocked surface whose sheer size is astonishing.

I had the pleasure to see his last exhibit when it was at the AGO in Toronto and I have to say for a modern artist his work is amazing and thought provoking.
