Guests were invited to climb the 3D bamboo lattice in the Folkestone Triennialin London designed by the Dutch artist – based in Amsterdam- Gabriel Lester. The artist used timber for the base structure also using it as a seating area for the visitors. “There’s this element of stacking and arranging things, much like you would to create a music composition or, on the other hand, maybe the way you would arrange flowers or a landscape,” he said.

The artist lived in China for 3 years and when he was asked to design an installation that make people aware of the old train track, he immediately thought of the bamboo as a literally different material that would attract the eye.
