    Wang Wei was born in 1972 in Beijing, China, where he lives and works.

    Natural History 4 (square) is a work intended for a public setting, which demonstrates his interest in creating immersive contexts that are vehicles for introducing artifice into real life. Wang Wei actively appropriates existing spaces and visual elements, constructing windows for investigating new layers of meaning.

    Spanning the Avenue Winston Churchill, Natural History 4 (square) is a mosaic tile platform, illustrating a pattern identical to those found in Dongguan, Guangdong, which can be both viewed and interacted with. Wang Wei transplants a material that is often used in China to cover large surfaces of buildings onto the streets of Paris, creating a parallel between modes of construction, decor and personal living styles.
