Tadashi Kawamata at Centre Pompidou

Japanese artist Tadashi Kawamata has recently had the chance to install one of his artworks on the exterior of the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

Kawamata stuck a series of bird nest-like huts to the metal framework of Centre Pompidou, created to “highlight the fragility of our bodily existence our relation to the world.”

Having seen it with our own eyes, it certainly captures your attention.

With their look of improvisation the small human ‘parasites’ build a strong contrast to the highly technical appearing “Refinery” – this is how Parisians call the Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers building of 1977.
