We heard a conceptual artist Ai Weiwei was arrested in his home country of China a few weeks ago.
His whereabouts or even if he is still alive, remains a mystery?
In October 2010 he was commissioned by the Tate, London to do an interactive exhibition for the gallery. He came up with a 100 million, porcelain, hand painted sunflower seeds-which people were free to interact with.
The exhibition was a resounding success but Ai's arrest has left a foul taste, rather than a nutty delight in our mouths due to the Chinese authorities's actions.
