Sometimes, the simpliest material such as a piece of paper can be transformed into the most luxurious Piece of Art !

Ai Weiwei Exposition, Le Bon Marché, Paris

What is the value of a beautifully crafted art piece? What is its worth if it’s made of paper? The greatest Chinese artist Ai Weiwei explored the fantasy-driven world of opulent extravagance through his handcrafted paper sculptures at Le Bon Marché.

His exposition Er Xi, which translates to “child’s play”, draws inspiration from the ancient Chinese text Shan Hai Jing (The Classic of Mountains and Seas), the legends of which have been read and retold to children for millennia.

Artist Ai Weiwei has used traditional Chinese kite-making techniques to create mythological characters and creatures for windows, atriums and the gallery at Paris department store Le Bon Marché.
