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.

The installation by Takashi Kuribayashi comprises trees in a snowy landscape hovering above the gallery floor as part of an exhibition called Vision of Nature: Lost & Found in Asian Contemporary Art.
It will be on show in the Pao Galleries of the Hong Kong Arts Centre from 10 December 2011 to 29 January 2012.
Here are some more details from the exhibition organisers:
