Ai Weiwei - The Papercut Portfolio Pre-order
Papercutting is a traditional Chinese art going back 2,000 years. The colored, intricately cut papers are used in festivities, for prayers, and as everyday decoration. In this exclusive papercut portfolio, Ai Weiwei employs the medium to reflect on his life and work.
These eight papercuts, exclusively created for TASCHEN, are now presented in a limited edition on large-format, high-quality red paper. Each papercut is signed by the artist and collected in a portfolio accompanied by explanatory notes by Chin-Chin Yap, who has extensively worked with Ai Weiwei, most recently as a writer and co-producer on several films. Through these eight pieces, Ai offers a beautiful, personal retrospective in a unique format.
