Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen | Giant paper installation
Brooklyn based Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen have created a massive paper sculpture for The Art Center of Sun Valley in Ketchum, Idaho. This site-specific installation titled In Response to Shoshone Falls spans over 6 meters in each direction.
The two artists, who have been working with each other since 2005, are best known for their large-scale sculptures that fill entire rooms with twisted paper materials. Their paper environments often resemble forests and trees, surrounding the viewer and adapting to the construction of their space by climbing up walls and suspending from ceilings.
The installations’ size forces visitors to interact with the installations. The installations are made from natural materials such as wood and paper, giving their work an organic atmosphere.
