Third Drawer Down Studio
Ai Weiwei Perspective Souvenir Spoons
Third Drawer Down Studio in collaboration with Ai Weiwei present the study of perspective souvenir teaspoons. Ai Weiwei’s Study of Perspective is a series of imagesall shot between 1995-2003, featuring the artist presenting his middle finger to iconic man made landmarks across the world. While there is initially humour to be seen in the series, the artist is using his locations and subjects as a means of rebelling against and rejecting authority. A study in line with the artists firm beliefs on human rights and the need for reform.
About the Artist:
Ai Weiwei is an artist and a social activist. His work encompasses diverse fields including fine arts, curating, architecture, and social criticism. Born in Beijing in 1957, he moved to Xinjiang with his family between 1960 and 1976. Subsequently he relocated to the United States in 1981 and lived there until 1993. He currently resides and works in Beijing.
On April 3, 2011, Ai was secretly detained by the police for 81 days at the Beijing Capital International Airport while on his way to board a flight to Hong Kong. He was released on bail on June 22, 2011 upon fabricated tax charges. Although the bail was lifted after a year, the authorities have not returned his passport and he remains prohibited from travelling outside China.
