Head On by Cai Guo-Qiang

Wow. A 2004 artwork, first shown in Berlin, it has traveled the world since. Watch below the explanations of this masterpiece by Cai Guo-Qiang himself.

He’s also the artist behind the sparkling cars suspended in the atrium of the Guggenheim in 2008.

Cai Guo-Qiang is internationally acclaimed as an artist whose creative transgressions and cultural provocations have literally exploded the accepted parameters of art making in our time. This is especially true of Inopportune: Stage One, Cai’s largest installation to date, which presents nine real cars in a cinematic progression that simulates a car bombing, occupying the central atrium of the Frank Lloyd Wright rotunda.

Merci Étienne !
