Weiwei's Salute

Despite his being in Chinese choky and the firm that produces his artworks - Beijing Fake Cultural Development Ltd - being under investigation for dodgy accounting, Ai Weiwei's thingies keep popping up all over the place. This marble sculpture politely but inaccurately entitled Marble Arm appeared in last weekend's ART HK 11 art fair in Hong Kong. I'm not sure whether the middle-finger salute is aimed at the Chinese government or at all those daft curators who are lining up to pay vast sums of money for his tosh.
