Ai Wei Wei’s new exhibition at the Venice Art Biennale

After being locked up for 81 days in a secret location in China two years ago and not being able to reveal his work, Chinese artist Ai Wei Wei is back and this time he has gone big. Again. The Venice Art Biennale shows three large-scale works of the Chinese artist and activist: titled Bang, Straight and S.A.C.R.E.D. The works are a refurbishment of his days in detention, a kind of therapy or exorcism he had to do to get those endless days with nothing to do, sitting and waiting in a tiny room, out of his system.

About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
