This impressive structure is the first permanent artwork in China by Paris-based Arnaud Lapierre – the artist behind the iconic installation Ring for Place Vendôme, realised on the occasion of FIAC 2011.

Ring – Chain, created in collaboration with international studio UAP, provides an iconic centrepiece to the entrance of the Hall of the Moon, Ruihong Tiandi – a landmark commercial development in Ruihong Xin Cheng, the largest international mixed-use development within Shanghai’s ‘golden triangle’.

The sculpture, which activates the pedestrian plaza creating a dynamic and interactive atmosphere, has been created using a repeating series of large mirror bricks, enabling visitors to enter the enclosure and to see their own reflection multiplied to infinity.

The concept behind Ring – Chain is that the reflecting surface reconstructs a new paradigm from its urban surroundings and alters the viewer’s perception allowing spatial rediscovery.
