The River Book
This artwork will be exhibited during two years from March 2021 to March 2023 in the Changqiantang park in Jiaxing city, China.
The challenge was to create an artwork that could last two years in the park, but also that stimulates people’s imagination and talks in an abstract way about the history of Jiaxing. YokYok wanted to use uncommon materials in order to awaken people’s senses and to play with geographical data in order to generate a meaningful and original volume for a unique pavilion.
