Japanese artist Katsumi Hayakawa's "Paperworks" exhibition explores the impression of architectural density through delicate three-dimensional installations. The intricate sculptures were all hand-crafted piece by piece out of paper and glue, creating an awe-inspiring assemblage of multi-layered urban conditions at different scales.

"In this exhibition, I tried to reflect the idea about the relationship between gravity and configuration as it is the gravity that has an influence on the universe," said Hayakawa.
When presenting his work at the exhibition, Hayakawa played with the compositional idea of solid versus void. The individual installations, although initially understood as one large arrangement of regular shapes and volume, are unique components that make up a whole with their own systems of patterns and motifs.
