Soleil Levant

Ai Weiwei, 2017

It looks rather beautiful from afar - the bright colours poking out of the windows at Kunsthall Charlottenborg. Until you get closer and realise these are life jackets and a sign on the wall reveals this piece to have been created for UN International Refugee Day on 20 June 2017. A sobering thought on our last day in Copenhagen as we worked our way through the remains of our Danish Krone for lunch and washed it down with a bottle of white wine.
