Art13: Rice paper sculpture goes on display for new London art fair
Thursday 28 February 2013
A 12-metre-wide installation made of 8,000 sheets of rice paper is going on show on the first day of a new art fair.
The Chinese artist Zhu Jinshi's work Boat was built by 20 people over three days and brought to London from Shanghai.
It is made of bamboo, cotton and rice paper and is on show at Art13 London in Olympia from tomorrow.
The event brings together work from more than 120 galleries from 29 countries around the world.
Fair Director Stephanie Dieckvoss said: "Art13 London will be a place for discovery - visitors will have the rare opportunity to encounter large-scale sculpture and installation works from across the globe. It's great that the projects encompass so many different regions, particularly since a number of the projects have been crafted specifically for the fair."
