Artist Ian Strange Covers Building in Gold Wallpaper

Strange15

Known for staging large-scale, site-specific architectural interventions around the world, Brooklyn-based artist Ian Strange’s latest sees him in Poland, wrapping a 600 square-metre residential building entirely in gold wallpaper.

Titled “ZŁOTY” after the Polish term for “golden”, the project took over 3 weeks to complete. And while the wallpaper will gradually deteriorate over time, that’s part of the point as the piece is intended to reflect the local history of the area and the collapse of a once booming mining industry. See more images below.
