"Swatter" (2007) is a clever and highly sought-after sculpture in gilt brass by famed Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. This work is edition 7/55, is in perfect condition, accompanied by formal Certificate of Authenticity and with original box, also in excellent condition. This ironic work brilliantly recontextualizes the utilitarian and ubiquitous fly swatter into an "objet d'art". Made of shiny gilt brass to imitate gold, Ai elevates an everyday, inexpensive object into one of 'luxury'. Acquired directly from the publisher by present Private European Collector.
