Just this past weekend, Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang opened his newest solo show at Izolyatsia, the¬† new art center in the industrial city of Donetsk, Ukraine. Entitled 1040M Underground, the new body of work was inspired by the explosive artist’s visit to the coal and salt mines (1040 meters below ground) of Ukraine’s industrial Donbas region. As you can see from the footage above from Vernissage TV, the environment of the mines was really captured by all the components of the exhibition.
