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.

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
