Full-Body Scan: Next! (In Conversation with Cai Guo-Qiang)

For the 55th Venice Biennale, Cai Guo-Qiang staged Full-Body Scan: Next!, an installation that touched upon themes of terrorism and the sense of distrust among people living in contemporary society. Listen to Cai explain the ideas driving the event in a video commissioned by Berengo Studio and put together by Savino Cancellara.

Enjoy!

No, they’re not real. But they’re spectacular.

Fabrication has begun for Heritage, an installation featuring 99 life-sized animal sculptures, including giraffes, pandas, lions, tigers, and kangaroos, all drinking together from a lake.  The installation,  surrounded by white sand, is inspired by his visit to Stradbroke Island in 2011.

Heritage will be unveiled for Falling Back to Earth, Cai’s first solo exhibition in Australia staged exclusively at Brisbane’s Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art opening November 23, 2013.
