Cai Guo-Qiang

June 18th, 2009

Cai Guo-Qiang is a very well known Chinese artist, I guess you know his installation Head On. Beside huge installations, he also makes these works with gunpowder. He has a certain amout of control about the outcome of the explosions, but a large part is uncertain. I think this is quite exiting.
These pieces remind me of Rosemarie Fiore, her work is just a little more colorful.

    He is incredible! I saw an exhibit of his at the Guggenheim last year. Despite the extreme force of his medium (gunpowder, explosion), his works are surprisingly delicate. To some extent, the moment of ‘go’ he loses complete control.

    Beautiful works . I immediately thought of another explosive artist, whose performance I watched a few months ago: Gwendoline Robin, http://www.gwendolinerobin.be/
