Chelmsford County Hall, Essex
Essex Jiangsu Festival - A World Unfolding
A World Unfolding was created for the Essex Jiangsu Festival, a county wide 6 month Chinese cultural festival.
The artwork, in place at County Hall for the six months duration of the festival, provided a highly visible symbol of the Essex-Jiangsu link throughout the Festival at the heart of the County Council.
The installation recreated an indoor garden populated by butterflies, exotic flowers and birds constructed in traditional Chinese paper folding and cutting techniques. Three large scale mobiles and a series of oversized origami-like structures were created by pupils from local primary schools, students from Tabor College of Science and Technologies and participants from Harolw Chinese Community Centre.
