Toronto-based sculptor Nurielle Stern presents a response to the exhibition Ai Weiwei: Unbroken. Displayed in a case outside the entrance to the exhibition, these smaller-scale ceramic sculptures reflect on the grand scope of the themes of Ai Weiwei’s works by focusing on the intimacy of a daily studio practice.
