hundreds of figures squeeze into ai weiwei's suspended rubber raft at the national gallery, prague
- the exhibition â€˜law of the journeyâ€™ unfolds across the trade fair palace in prague as a multi-layered statement on the human condition. inside the vast main hall, an enormous rubber boat is suspended from the ceiling, hovering within the galleryâ€™s post-industrial, cathedral-like space. the overcrowded raft carries a mass of figures squeezed together, seemingly set for a journey across the unknown. through this gesture of reconstructing a desperate act of escape, ai weiwei seeks to pay tribute to the human tragedy of the present moment, and emphasize manâ€™s desire for a sense of a belonging.
