Ai Weiwei

Wrapped sculpture by Ai Weiwei

I walked into the courtyard of Somerset House a week or so ago, drawn by an arc of wrapped animal heads around the fountains. I only found out later that these were by Ai Weiwei, his forthcoming exhibition, still under wraps.  As we still do not know where he is, it somehow seemed appropriate to see his work hidden, gagged.
