Enacting Concept After Ai Weiwei : Dropping A Tank of Ink

實現概念之 艾未未 - 摔一缸墨

Photographs, video (video 0:20)


Supporting the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei during his unlawful arrest by the Chinese government in 2011 and calling for his immediate release, a Hong Kong news daily, Ming Pao, launched the open-call project, Free Ai Weiwei! We Are All Ai Weiwei!, and invited local artists to submit their own versions of Ai's Dropping A Han Dynasty Urn 摔一隻漢代的瓦罐 (1995).  The paper received hundreds of responses and the images were published on 10 April 2011.  My version was dropping a tank of Chinese ink.
