Vibrant Ladders adorn Pacific Place: Installation piece ‘Spiral Scratch’ by Scottish artist Jim Lambie

Why We Recommend it

Scottish contemporary artist and 2005 Turner Prize nominee Jim Lambie presents his largest floor installation to date – a vibrant collection of 15 ladders anchored through the space in rhythmic, overlapping formation.


The site-specific work brings together editions of two earlier works, The Strokes and Shaved Ice, for the first time, juxtaposing an intricate, rhythmic floor sculpture with the installation of 15 ladders.

The combination results in a kaleidoscopic interaction of colour, shape and form that brings together everyday objects to create a prism of continually changing reflections.

This in turn generates new perspectives and surreal moments of engagement for the viewer as the ebb and flow of public movement brings to life this interactive installation.

Adorning the atrium of Pacific Place, this installation is part of an ongoing program by Swire Properties to add more public art into Hong Kong’s urban life. Last year the space welcomed Julius Popp’s groundbreaking word waterfall.
