Maharam, a renowned textile company, collaborated with Ai Weiwei, the Chinese contemporary artist and activist, to create a distinctive wallpaper for the Serpentine Galleries. This collaboration marked an exciting fusion of art, design, and social commentary. The wallpaper designed by Ai Weiwei draws inspiration from his iconic “Study of Perspective” series. In this series, the artist captures photographs of his left arm extended forward with the middle finger raised, directed at authoritative landmarks and symbols of power. Through this bold and defiant gesture, Ai Weiwei comments on issues of authority, censorship, and human rights.
In the context of the Maharam wallpaper, the artist’s “Study of Perspective” images are transformed into a decorative pattern. This pattern serves a dual purpose: it conceals the provocative gesture while simultaneously revealing it to those who look closely. The Maharam wallpaper designed by Ai Weiwei not only brings his thought-provoking art into the realm of interior design but also allows individuals to engage with his critical commentary on authority and expression in a unique and everyday setting.
