Stuck amongst the metal framework of the Centre Pompidou in Paris are a series of bird nest-like huts, created to “highlight the fragility of our bodily existence our relation to the world.”
Daily Tonic explains:
The Japanese artist Tadashi Kawamata is well known for his architectural installations made from humble, sometimes recycled materials such as cardboard boxes or disused timber. One of his newest creations are wooden huts hanging like wesp’s nests between the beams and pillars of the structural facade of Centre Pompidou in Paris. With their look of improvisation the small parasites build a strong contrast to the highly technical appearing “Refinery” – this is how Parisians call the Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers building from 1977.
