: WEIWEI, Ai

: one cubic metre ton of compressed and richly scented pu-erh tea, one of an edition of three; in this work the artist makes reference to post-war art history, specifically minimalism, and globalisation through the humble substance of tea, China's oldest export; historically, tea was compressed into blocks using a tea press, for easy transportation
