Created by the renowned Belgian artist Charles Kaisin, a giant origami installation entitled "HYPHEN" made of 13,500 glittering origami horses is hung at the Courtyard of PMQ, Hong Kong.

Hand-folded with thousands of sheets of reflective golden foil, the shiny horses symbolize fortune and perfection in the perspective of the Chinese. "PMQ GOat ARTventure" exhibition runs from 10 February to 31 March 2015. 

"HYPHEN represents a link between all the memories of the past year and all the wonderful times ahead. It is also a symbol of unity in human relations. The link between red and gold represents not only the prosperity and happiness, but also a harmonious blend of human beings in the universe. This is what the term hyphen means in Greek" says Charles Kaisin.

He was responsible for conducting creations by prestigious brands such as Swatch, Delvaux, Hermes or Pierre Marcolini, and he worked as artistic director at Val Saint Lambert and as a project manager at Hermann Miller. It is a guest lecturer at the Hong Kong Design Institute and the Higher Institute Saint-Luc architecture.
