"I have been here many, many times. I feel so familiar to the environment and I feel comfortable, and it feels real, natural. I like it because I feel I belong to it, you know. Jim Ede understood how to make his life as art, make art as his life. So, I very much identify to the environment." - @aiww on Kettle's Yard in interview. 'Ai Weiwei: The Liberty of Doubt' closes tomorrow, Sunday 19 June! Come along to Kettle's Yard today and tomorrow, 11am-5pm to catch the show before it finishes.
