The centrepiece of GOMA’s Summer 2013 – 2014 exhibition is the installation Heritage by world-renowned artist Cai Guo Qiang. Cai’s vision is that of a pristine utopia, untouched by worldly influences.
Ninety-nine animals from all parts of the world have gathered at an unspoiled waterhole and the most unlikely combinations of creatures are drinking together in harmony.
The perfect stillness of the scene is broken by a single drop of water falling from the centre of the room. Do the ripples represent the imperfections of our world as they alter the reflections of these magnificent creatures?
