Definitely one of the top art installations of all time… simply amazing.

2006 – Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin, Germany

Title: Head On

Date: August 26—October 15, 2006

Exhibition: Cai Guo-Qiang: Head On

Institution: Deutsche Guggenheim

Location: Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin, Germany

Curators: Friedhelm Hütte and Ariane Grigoteit

Materials: 99 life-sized replicas of wolves and glass

Dimensions: Installation dimensions variable

Concept: With few wolves scattered in the front gallery, all ninety-nine wolves run, gallop, and jump toward the far end of the exhibition hall, where a wall stands. The bravery of the wolves is met head on by the unyielding wall. As the leading wolves go down, many more follow with force and determination. As those in the front fall and pile up, those behind take up their positions.
