Spanning the ground-floor galleries of GOMA, this exhibition presents major, large-scale installations by one of the world’s leading contemporary artists, Cai Guo-Qiang.
This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Australia and is exclusive to Brisbane.
A centrepiece of the exhibition is a dramatic new commission, Heritage 2013, which features 99 life-sized animals from around the world gathered together at a watering hole.
Also featured is Head On 2006, with its stream of 99 life-sized wolves leaping through the air and crashing into a glass wall.
Other new work in the exhibition is inspired by the artist’s experiences in Australia, drawing upon local landscape, history and culture.
There also will be a special project devised by the artist for children.
Cai Guo-Qiang's works reflect upon the globalised nature of our world, and appeal to broad audiences. He is best known for his awe-inspiring firework displays (featured at the 2008 Beijing Olympics opening and closing ceremonies) and a record-breaking solo retrospective exhibition at New York’s Guggenheim Museum.
