About Ai Wei Wei I have mixed emotions – I don’t always like what he does, but that must be also the purpose of an artist, to
shake a bit your visual habits and limits.
Le Bon Marché is a place I love, a pace I’ve knows since very long time, a place where shopping is a cultural and original experience, not just an upmarket store. Being part of the LVMH luxury group, one can fully understand why art and cultural events are part of the store’s life.
Visual installation of chinese artist Ai Wei Wei perfectly found their place under the glass roof – aerial, unexpected and very creative, the works are also poetic and full of humor (don’t miss the artist “self-portrait” or the hands with the middle finger raised from the store’s huge windows.
