I was really taken by the piece High Rises (2014) by Judy Chan who had crafted a giant piece that covered the floor and wall. Consisting of rectangular tubes representing high-rise buildings that keep popping up in Hong Kong to satisfying the growing need for families and businesses that need the space to work and live.
For me I was concerned with the structure of the piece, how it was constructed, a very professional and clean job. It almost comes alive, like mould or damp that just keeps on growing. There was a sense of great movement as the pieces were shooting out of the corner where they all begin.
It’s great to see cardboard being used so simply to and beautifully to create a powerful piece of work.
