Similar. But definitely not the same. A changed sculpture installation in 798. In the absence of actual knowledge, it is easy to speculate on how and why the earlier sculpture has been replaced by this less unnerving one. As reflected in other images shared in this post, one can track not only the ways that the in-your-face quality of 798 has been domesticated, but also the way that 798 is, for instance, becoming a place where children are part of commercial mix. The new work clearly articulates with the older one for anyone who had seen it previously, without being quite so difficult to explain to the uninitiated. Does anyone know the actual story?
