{artists} Cai Guo-Qiang


I can’t believe this is the first time I’m hearing about Chinese artist, Guo-Qiang – known for his large installations and explosion/pyrotechnic projects. (The wolves are replicas.) More slides of his mind-blowing installations here and on his website. [thanks to KOS for sending]

“Concept: With few wolves scattered in the front gallery, all ninety-nine wolves run, gallop, and jump toward the far end of the exhibition hall, where a wall stands. The bravery of the wolves is met head on by the unyielding wall. As the leading wolves go down, many more follow with force and determination. As those in the front fall and pile up, those behind take up their positions.”
