A display of human figures on rooftops - by sculptor Sir Antony Gormley - has reportedly been cancelled after the suicide of a Hong Kong bank worker.
The Event Horizon exhibition was due to have been shown in Hong Kong, having toured London, New York and Sao Paulo.
But investment bank JP Morgan is said to have asked for sponsorship to be withdrawn after one of its employees jumped to his death from a building.
The show has won acclaim for examining humans' relationship to urban spaces.
