Sunflower Seeds on Sunflower Seeds

The italian artist group IOCOSE has thrown some real sunflower seeds on Ai Weiwei‘s porcelain ‘Sunflower Seeds’:

“The porcelain seeds, previously exhibited at the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, are now part of a new artwork. The new artwork looks exactly the same as the previous one, as the natural seeds and those made of porcelain are indistinguishable from each other. IOCOSE reclaims the authorship of the new installation and reminds viewers of Ai Weiwei’s previous statement: ‘what you see is not what you see, and what you see is not what it means’.”
