Night at the Museum

Today I want to share with you my impressions from visiting Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art. I had honor to meet with China’s most explosive artist, Cai Guo Qiang and see his works.He uses gun powder to create some truly unique works of art. His technique of igniting gun powder on a paper canvas is considered a new medium of contemporary artistic expression.And here we go...

This installation is impressed me most.Look very realistic.Crowding together in mid-air and interacting dynamically with the space around them, the falcons and camel are suggest a suspension of disbelief; the viewer may decide whether the falcons are harming the camel, helping it, or are unrelated and indifferent.


The number ninety-nine in Chinese culture symbolizes infinity, while in Muslim culture it recalls the Ninety-Nine Names of God. The horse, too, is highly symbolic in distinct ways in both cultures. In this installation, some horses are drawn with gunpowder exploded onto the paper while others hang in front of them, galloping in space, and dappling the surface with shadows.


 How he's  created his art work...
