East meets West...<br />
<br />
An new exhibition of Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei opened yesterday in the unlikely surroundings of that most British of country estates, Blenheim Palace in rural Oxfordshire.<br />
<br />
Centrepeice of the provocative exhibition, in the pilastered grandeur of the entrance hall to the Palace, is a colossal 9 tiered chandelier that will makes a striking first impresssion on the visitor's - many of whom ironically will be from China.<br />
<br />
Ai Weiwei has had to plan the show from his home in China as the authorities there will still not let him leave the country.
