Ai Wei Wei's Sunflower Seeds

I love the Tate Modern Unilever Series. This time it was 120 million sunflower seeds, each individually "made in China".
A chinese friend of mine said: "You see, you start using their products and one day they will take over the world". For now, sunflower seeds are being laid in Tate Modern and it was a rather wonderful experience to see them, touch them and play with them (though not to walk on or make sunflower seed angels out of, something I was so disappointed about).

Frieze Art Fair 2010

Frieze Art Fair takes place every October in Regent’s Park, London. It features over 170 of the most exciting contemporary art galleries in the world. The fair also includes specially commissioned artists’ projects, a prestigious talks programme and an artist-led education schedule. It is one of the biggest modern art events in London's art calendar.

Here are a few things that caught my eyes this year...

This are portraits of men who stayed unmarried in a village somewhere in Latin America. Somehow it reminded me of the miners in Chile...

Anish Kapoor's Turning The World Upside Down

I am loving the new outdoor sculptures by Anish Kapoor in Kensington Gardens.These are a collection of his recent works that have never before shown together (Sky Mirror has been installed in New York).

They will be in residence at Kensington Gardens from September 2010 to March 2011 reflecting the moods of the changing seasons.
