My first name Nouar means probably nothing to you but actually it is interesting to know that it does mean light in Berber. The name was given, I've been told, by my Grandpa. He probably did it on purpose to sketch a kind of a passion for me...

This is the first big show of the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei in Vienna.
His temporary installation "Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads" took place in Vienna, in 2016. The Chineese contemporary artist and activist was present with strong works.
Migration as a personal experience and social focus as well as the encounter of different cultures are major topics in Ai Wewei's work. This is even more evident in a floating sculpture that complements the exhibition "Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads" at the Belvedere. "F Lotus" looks at first glance like a decorative orchid in the pond. However, should the visitor have the opportunity to see from a birds'-eye view, he could recognize a calligraphic F consisting of 1,005 lifejackets - a clear reference to the current refugees situation.
Here are some impressions of this monumental open air exhibition at the Belvedere castle.
