Liu Wei fills Qatar gallery with sculptures made of dog chews

Chinese artist Liu Wei has often turned unconventional materials into remarkable pieces of art. One of my favorites is Love It! Bite It! – a fictional city that includes the "tastiest bits" of Western Civilization, including the Coliseum and the Guggenheim, made entirely of dog chews. 

His large-scale rawhide sculptures are currently on view in Doha as part of of an exhibition curated by artist Cai Guo-Qiang. The show, which runs through July 16, features 15 Chinese creatives and examines their contributions to the international canon of contemporary art. Here are some snaps from the exhibit via designboom:
