When I heard about Ai Weiwei’s exhibtion at the Royal Academy of Arts London I knew I couldn’t miss it.
I decided to go on a day trip to London by myself. Luckily I booked a cheap flight during Ryanair’s sale, going early in the morning and flying back again in the evening. It worked out perfectly.
I have been a fan of Ai Weiwei’s for a long time now, both in his activism and art. When I first discovered Ai Weiwei I remember having to read everything I could find about him, I watched all his movies; what an interesting character. During a trip to Beijing last September I got to see his work for the first time in person.
What a fantastic exhibition, I enjoyed it immensely, and already look forward to my next Ai Weiwei exhibition.

During my visit to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art I got to see David Altmejd’s The Flux and the Puddle.
It was great to see in person. The longer you look at The Flux and the Puddle the more you see, it comes to life before your eyes.
