Ai Weiwei’s Pots and Jean-Luc Godard’s Celluloid.

While Ai Weiwei’s work with pots represent the artist’s more accessible work, there’s something about his actions and decisions with the, often expensive and historically relevant, pots that seem weirdly cinematic.  This isn’t to say that they look like something out of a film (though actually they could easily work as something surreal given the … Continue reading Ai Weiwei’s Pots and Jean-Luc Godard’s Celluloid.
