With limited time in Beijing I had to be quite choosy when it came to locations I wanted to visit, as I could only spend so much time visiting so many locations, and not plan a decent amount of time to spend roaming the streets and different areas to get a feel for each one.
I was very pleased to have met up with Pamhule to find out about the hutongs, and of course with the following day free to do as I desired, he was also able to offer some great suggestions of other places to visit. This did not make my decision any easier.
In the end I was really happy with the one place that was suggested which I opted to go to, and that was the 798 Art District. I really enjoyed walking around here.
I’m not sure if this particular sculpture was meant to be an actual installation or not, it could have just been removed from one of the galleries and cast aside onto the pile of rubble that it sat on. I thought it was pretty cool though.
Does it remind anyone else of Marilyn Manson?
