Arne Quinze’s Red Beacon, Shanghai

We’ve featured the riotously beautiful work of Belgian conceptual artist cum interiors/architecture guru, Arne Quinze before… here, and here – and we’ve been patiently waiting for more from Belgium’s finest for some time. Conceived to entice visitors into Shanghai’s Jing’an Sculpture Park, Quinze’s Red Beacon is typically unrestrained, with 55 tonnes of wooden planking, seemingly slung in fury at a canopy structure. It’s of course this wonderfully haphazard style that gives the finished installation it’s mystical, alluring quality… we just pity the fools who have to put it all together
