BEAUTY: Installation--Cai Guo-Qiang

Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art Foundation in Australia is currently hosting a remarkable art installation by Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang entitled "Falling Back To Earth." The QAGOMA website reports:

"‘Falling Back to Earth’, presented by Tourism and Events Queensland and Santos GLNG Project, features three major installations, including two newly commissioned works directly inspired by the landscapes of southeast Queensland, which the artist visited in 2011. The centrepiece of the exhibition — Heritage 2013 — features 99 replicas of animals from around the world, gathered together to drink from a blue lake surrounded by pristine white sand, reminiscent of the lakes of Moreton Bay’s islands. The second installation, Eucalyptus 2013 responds to the ancient trees of Lamington National Park in the Gold Coast hinterland, while the third — Head On 2006 — is a striking installation of 99 artificial wolves leaping en masse into a glass wall, on display in Australia for the first time."

The show is running until May 11, 2014.
