Falling Back To Earth
Cai Guo-Qiang


Falling Back To Earth

An otherworldly conference of animal species locked in a moment of singular purpose and apparent harmony. Under the fizz of an impossible sky, this arresting vision by the near ubiquitous Cai Guo-Qiang sits, now permanently, in the Queensland Art Gallery, forever proposing a utopian vision of species at peace. One could imagine this clinical apparition as one of the final scenes of Kubrick's 2001. The feeling of its being an alien zoo, which the visitor enters as participating exhibit is hard to shake. The sheer scale and finish now available to artists of Guo-Qiang's status and affluence increasingly enables manifest visions which boarder on engulfing the viewer. Sometimes the scale is matched in ambition by the ideas which drive them.
