QAGOMA

Cai Guo-Qiang at GOMA, Brisbane

5,661 views 1 month ago
In an Australian first, GOMA presents a dramatic exhibition, from one of the world's most revered contemporary artists, Cai Guo-Qiang.

This breathtaking exhibition is a reflection of our world through the eyes of a visionary. Spanning the ground floor galleries of GOMA, the scale and beauty of each work has left audiences speechless.

Cai's signature installation 'Head On' 2006, which sees 99 replica wolves leaping in a glorious arch and crashing into a glass wall, is joined by two new, and equally impressive, works commissioned by GOMA. The first, 'Eucalyptus', features a majestic 31-metre gum tree suspended across the gallery, and invites visitors to reflect upon its past, present and future. The second work, 'Heritage', is undoubtedly the centrepiece of the exhibition. Inspired by Cai's visit to Queensland's Stradbroke Island, this huge display is comprised of 99 replicas of animals from five continents, gathered to drink around a tranquil watering hole.

'Falling Back to Earth' is exclusive to Brisbane and is one of the year's must-see events. Details at http://www.qagoma.qld.gov.a...

'Cai Guo-Qiang: Falling Back to Earth' is presented by Tourism & Events Queensland & Santos GLNG Project, and is on view at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) until 11 May 2014.
