Hurricane – dialogue between past and present
Hurricane is a set of two gold mirrors created from crushed mirror-polished aluminium. Each piece is hand-formed with unique folds and angles. The gold metal complements the amber hue of Prologue, and its hyper-contemporary look serves to highlight the Belvedere’s baroque aesthetic and the important artworks within, in particular its large collection of paintings by Gustav Klimt.
