Ai Weiwei’s Iron Tree sculpture at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park is by far one of the most impressive pieces at the whole of the open air museum. It’s location seems perfect and to imagine the front of the chapel without this piece is very difficult. It would certainly be a very empty and unimpressive location without all of the benefits of this sculpture.
The installation has had an amazing amount of attention:
- Ai Weiwei fills Yorkshire chapel with symbols of his persecution
- Iron spirit: Ai Weiwei’s Yorkshire Sculpture Park takeover – in pictures
- Ai Weiwei in the Chapel, Yorkshire Sculpture Park
- Three current Ai Weiwei exhibitions display his wit and courage
