Ai Weiwei Umbrella Study of Perspective: Houses of Parliament
- Ai Weiwei’s Study of Perspective series of photographs shows the artist’s middle finger defiantly raised to significant institutions and monuments around the world.
- In a subversion of classic tourist photography, Weiwei encourages us to question our acceptance of power. Adding a provocative image featuring London’s Houses of Parliament to Britain’s staple accessory: the umbrella, results in a piece that feels playfully aware of its anti-establishment nature.
