Ai Weiwei

S.A.C.R.E.D, 2011-2013

Fiberglass, acrylic paint, iron

Dioramas reconstructing scenes from Mr. Ai Weiwei’s illegal detention in China in 2011, when he was held for 81 days in a secret prison guarded by a paramilitary unit. Six fiberglass dioramas depict, at half-scale, his often banal daily existence as a captive of the vast government security apparatus.
