After his first successful sculpture on Chinese soil ( i.e. ‘Red Beacon’ located in the Jing’An sculpture park ) Arne Quinze installs a new sculpture in China. This time inside the Jing’An Kerry Centre in Shanghai.
The architect had the ambition of building Shanghai's own Fifth Avenue –the classy shopping street in New York. The metal ‘Chaos Wind’ installation playing an essential part of this project will connect several buildings and functions. With this public sculpture serving as a crossroad connecting people Arne Quinze succeeds again in his ongoing discourse of fighting social boundaries, bringing everyone closer to art as a culture.
This sculpture counting 14 bright orange metal wings, weighing each between 200 and 1000 kilos, capturing the motion of leaves hovering in the wind. By freezing them in time Arne Quinze accentuates it's dynamic motion. A strong vibrancy often seen in his work concept. The artists trademarked red colour serving as a continuous stream of impulses, amplifies the concept and intrigues all passer-by.
Both day and night the sculpture will strongly claim its void in space. By day wrapping itself around its visitors underneath as an exoskeleton, creating an introvert and protective atmosphere by suggesting invisible dynamic lines, lines that will appear by night through laser beam technology and showing it's extravert impulses to all passer-by from a street view.
