31 × 8 inches
Edition of 66
This special edition of 66, signed and numbered with hand signed COAs was produced in 2017 - to 'commemorate' the first 100 disastrous days of the Trump administration - and it sold out promptly. Note the measurements above apply to each of the set of three. The skate decks were produced in an edition of 666 - but only 66 of them are hand numbered and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity - hand signed by Ai Weiwei. This is one of the 66 special ones. Extremely rare and highly collectible; a true collectors' item. This limited edition was based on Ai Weiwei’s provocative artwork that was presented during a controversial art exhibition “Fuck Off” which ran alongside the Third Shanghai Biennale in 2000. “Study of Perspective – White House” is an iconic example of a larger body of work by Ai Weiwei that melds art and activism, and is an overt critical response to the current political climate in the United States.
Study of Perspective, a series of images shot between 1995 and 2003, shows the artist flipping the finger against different buildings across the globe, either landmarks or symbols of authority.
The gesture, captured using a snapshot aesthetic, confronts its viewer with a universal and concise statement of Ai Weiwei’s political opposition. A fantastic investment -- already an historical collectors' item!
Signature: Signed on the deck; hand numbered and accompanied by a hand signed Certificate of Authenticity.
Makes a terrific gift!
