follow the leader

'Head On' by Cai Guo-Qiang at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin. The installation consists of 99 life-sized wolves, fabricated from painted sheepskins and stuffed with hay and metal wires, barreling in a continous stream towards - and into - a glass wall. Only the first ones crash into it, but the pack chases after the leader.

Inspired by the omnipresence of German history, he made his first sketches for the exhibition, after which a concept developed out of these ideas that contains references to the various media that Cai Cuo-Qiang employs as well as addresses the city in terms of content and the exhibition space itself in terms of form.
