• Ai Weiwei - Forever Bicycles in Toronto
  • Posted 6 months ago by staff · Art & Design · 12538 Views
  • As part of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche in Toronto this weekend, renowned Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei has recreated his stunning Forever Bicycles installation in the center of Nathan Phillips Square. The gigantic piece dominates the majority of the outdoor space, featuring over 3,000 bicycles and measuring a colossal 100 ft long and 30 ft wide. By using the popular Yongjiu bikes (Yongjiu roughly translates as "forever bicycles" - hence the installation's name) to create the labyrinth like structure, Weiwei comments on the ever changing and often confusing social environment not only in China, but around the world. The piece will be on show through to 27 October, 2013, so if you're in Toronto make sure you head down.

    • If there weren't barriers, there'd be too many idiots trying to climb it as opposed to appreciating it.
