Here is the last piece from the Evidence exhibit I have to show you. I hope you've enjoyed this short tour through the show this week. I am still contemplating what I can show for tomorrow's these day, Zest. Guess I need to work on that! Here is some additional information about this work:
"Table and Chest with Striped Chairs: 2007, Wooden table and chest, chairs from the Ming dynasty
Old furniture that has been used over time gains a patina which gives these items a beautiful sheen as well as showing the furniture's age. Following the removal of a 1mm layer from the original surface, the Ming dynasty table and chairs as if they were brand new. By eliminating traces of use and their history, Ai Weiwei asks viewers to consider questions of authenticity and the value and meaning of antiques and original artworks."
