Location : CHINESE MAINLAND, Shanghai
Artist : Paul Cocksedge
Created by acclaimed London-based artist Paul Cocksedge, “Gust of Wind” reflects his passion for intricate shape, light, and of course, paper. The work occupies the central space of the spiral staircase at HKRI Taikoo Hui, Shanghai. It imagines hundreds of pieces of paper blown into the air by a gust of wind, and as people climb or descend the staircase they experience the light from the domed window above reflecting and refracting off the subtle folds of paper.
