For the Brussels’ Bar’s bicentenary Belgian designer Charles Kaisin created a spectacular and poetic installation in the Courthouse’s lobby.
Kaisin have learned for 1 year origami making in Japan.A total of 10 000 origamis, folded with the help of Sint-Gillis Prison’s inmates, are forming a gigantic wave taking up the center of the space.
The paper used to fold the origamis comes from old civil and penal codes provided by the Bar. The installation is like a “Pneuma”, from the greek origin it means Breath.
