Last night's opening at Phillips de Pury for their upcoming auction was all about the number four. Chinese super-artist Ai Wei Wei's show was titled "four movements" - a highlight was four sets of marble chair in a work titled "Marble chair". In keeping with the theme my friend who came to the opening had no more and no less than FOUR glasses of champagne. Beautiful Marble, different mottled hues in each chair mixed with (dare I say it) an ever so slight hint of a Hans Wegner wishbone.

"Moon chests"- the work has a complicated scientific theory behind it to do with scientific perception of the moon. Interesting essay about the artist by Arthur L Miller
