Surreal Cycle Sculptures

The Forever Bicycle art installation is another stunning work of art from Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, who is currently being held in detention in his native country. Ironically, the Forever Bicycle sculpture is part of a larger work titled ‘Ai WeiWei Absent.’

Made out of 1,000 bikes, the Forever Bicycle art installation impressively reaches 10meters high. Even more impressive is the fact that this immense sculpture is constantly moving and changing shape, just like the social environment in China, which the Forever Bicycle installation symbolizes.

Artwork like the Forever Bicycle art installation is exactly what has landed Ai Weiwei in his precarious situation. Yet, without such provoking art that keeps people in power on their toes, terrible situations can only get worse.
