Here’s Forever Bicycles (2011), Ai Weiwei’s installation at a show titled Absent at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum. Mark Twain said that if a joke doesn’t work, you should repeat it until it does. There’s been a lot of shit-talk about this exhibition here in Taiwan (mostly about funding and the use of the museum’s space), but I like this piece. Something about repetition I guess. Repetition  has  to do with saying the same thing over and over, redundancy, or repeating yourself. My scooter series explores a similar theme.
