Private Sales - Ai Weiwei - BOMB - 2020
In recent years, Ai Weiwei has moved across the mediums of film, performance, and installation to explore the human impact of the global refugee crisis. In BOMB, Ai turns his attention to the weapons of mass destruction that are partly to blame for this crisis.
Inspired by his 2019 History of Bombs exhibition, which originated at the Kemper Art Museum in St. Louis and is now on view at London’s Imperial War Museum, BOMB charts the genealogy of the modern ballistic missile via 2D renderings.
Ai’s genealogy is not a chronology: it does not move simply from left to right. Rather, the bombs are organized mostly by size. As they crescendo from the bottom to the top of the lithograph, the ballistics remind the viewer that bombs escalate conflict more often than they resolve it. Yet they also remind the viewer of the bomb’s peculiar, though devastating, beauty.
