British-Indian artist Anish Kapoor is to make a version of the Gangnam Style video to promote free speech.

The sculptor is gathering other artists, actors and dancers to help him recreate the video, originally by South Korean pop star Psy.

The new video will be in response to – and in support of – a similar project by dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. The version by Weiwei featured him waving handcuffs in criticism of the Chinese government’s actions in arresting and detaining him without charge for more almost three months last year. Access to it online in China was quickly blocked by the Chinese authorities.
