Ai Wei Wei Crabs

SKATEROOM

Ai Wei Wei Crabs

This deck was inspired by Ai Weiwei’s installation of a group of 3,200 ceramic crabs at the Hirshhorn Museum of Washington D.C. in 2011. The installation, entitled ‘He Xie’, refers to a Chinese slang term referencing internet censorship in China. It also plays on the word’s similarity in sound to ‘river crab’ and ‘harmonious’.
