Ai Weiwei's monumental installation is centred around the bicycle and is his third show at the Lisson Gallery in recent years.
The geometrically-stacked bicycles are part of the Chinese artist's ongoing series Forever, recalling the brand of bicycle mass-produced in Shanghai, and reflecting the influence of Marcel Duchamp.
The exhibition also features hand-carved sculptures in steel and crystal of domestic objects with sentimental value to Weiwei, such as a marble recreation of his father’s armchair, while other works recount his period of detention in 2011.
Mon-Fri 10.00-18.00, Sat 11.00-17.00
