I arrived on installation day prepared to hang with the gilded panels facing out if, having torn off all the protective polythene, I couldn’t live with seeing the results. But once the first panel was up with the help of one scaffold and the efforts of four bodies, I thought it was all okay.
The ambient light has a transformative effect with endless reflections and gold shimmers. The only way for me to experience it is by moving side to side, around, in closer, out, from low down and from within.
The interior space has a different atmosphere entirely; ethereal, opaque, mysterious.
An amazing ten days.
