Later this week visitors to the Hong Kong Arts Centre will be able to stick their heads through the ceiling of one gallery to find themselves in a paper winter wonderland.

Vision of Nature: Lost & Found in Asian Contemporary Art

    Wow! Nice to see art that lifts you to another plane. Escapism for a change instead of all the grit of most modern art.
