Caochangdi is a sculpture of the artist village in Beijing, where I did a residency at Galerie Urs Meile. For many years Caochangdi was under threat of demolition. In 2011, Caochangdi narrowly escaped demolition by the Chinese Authorities. In 2018, many artists and galleries were evicted and Ai Weiwei's studio was demolished. Many of the other buildings still remain, at least for now.
