Titled “Making Sense,” the exhibition will feature giant site-specific installations, including five expansive “fields” made up of hundreds of thousands of objects collected by the artist since the 1990s. Among these impressive installations, visitors will have the chance to see Ai Weiwei’s “Water Lilies #1”, the largest-ever artwork made entirely from Lego. Made from nearly 650,000 Lego bricks in 22 colors, the extraordinary piece is a recreation of one of Claude Monet’s most famous paintings.
Ai Weiwei has made a name for himself as an artist, architect, designer, filmmaker, and activist.
One of Ai Weiwei’s most famous works is his installation, “Sunflower Seeds”, which was exhibited at the Tate Modern in 2010. The piece consisted of 100 million porcelain sunflower seeds, each one hand-painted by Chinese artisans.
Undoubtedly, one of the main highlights of the exhibition is Ai Weiwei’s “Water Lilies #1”, which has been hailed as the largest Lego artwork in the world.
The piece is a stunning recreation of one of the most famous paintings by French Impressionist Claude Monet and challenges our preconceptions of reality and beauty. Composed of nearly 650,000 Lego bricks in 22 different colors, the artwork stretches over 15 meters in length.
