Asia Link Art, through the initiative Global Project Space, has partnered with Melbourne based artist Lisa Roet to present Skywalker, an exciting installation at The Opposite House hotel in Beijing.
Made in Melbourne in collaboration with designer Felipe Reynolds, Skywalker is an inflated male gibbon with an arm span of 20 metres, that is perched high on the façade of the award-winning hotel. Displaying until 29 April, it will be the focal point of a month-long programme of events, discussions and installations surrounding bio-sustainability
Made from solar sensitive material, Skywalker will come to life with sound and light components, and is best viewed from the north façade of The Opposite House.
The placement and collaboration with The Opposite House, one of Beijing’s first environmentally conscious buildings designed by renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, demonstrates the artist’s commitment to challenging, yet relevant, high-impact public projects and her ongoing commitment to research and documentation within her practice.
