So way back when, we managed to make out to the Power Station of Art out near the South Bund area for the Cai Guo-Qiang exhibition we had heard so many great things about. The first time I heard of it was through instagram when everyone was posting these AMAZING fireworks performance piece that happened on the day of the opening and that I’m super pissed off for missing ): Yes..those are FLOWERS made of FIREWORKS..WTF!!!! So heading out to see the exhibition was DEFINITELY on our list of to-dos. I’m definitely far from an art critic though I did study art for A-Levels and technically have a Fine Arts degree (in Communications design) but yes…me going to an art show now is like “wow cool..colors..and wait what kind of wire did they use to hang up this poster and ohh let’s take the exhibition catalogue so I can use the layout for reference..” so yeah..really not good at critiquing art (not gonna lie..I couldn’t even properly spell “critiquing” a second ago).

So we moseyed around, checking out all the amazing large scale and 3D pieces then took full advantage of the afternoon light and shadows. We snuck around and discovered a bare rooftop and cool crazy staircase to shoot around. The Power Station of Art is such a fun place to go to even on random weekends when you don’t even know what’s showing there. I definitely recommend checking it out if you have time and if not for the art, at least for the huge wide open space around the museum for a perfect photoshoot/faux music video shoot. The 10th Shanghai Biennale is coming soon, that might be something worth checking out!

P.S. How sick are these Zara faux leather culottes? Just don’t wear them on a really hot day cos the leather waistband definitely gets a little sticky sticky!
