This weekend, I stopped by the Art HK 10 fair at the convention center. It is an annual 4 day event, showcasing pieces from modern and contemporary art galleries all over Asia. The pieces ranged from $1000USD to $10 million USD. Though I reckon most people were just there to absorb the cultural atmosphere, which is soarly lacking in Hong Kong.
One of my favourite things about Hong Kong is that no one is camera shy- even when there are “no photography” signs all over the place. So here are a few pieces that caught my eye:
This interactive piece is a glass platform that viewers are invited to stand upon. Taking a closer look, this platform is supported tonnes by identical little figurines with their hands raised above their heads. Maybe it is demonstrating the power of the many? It is pretty cool.
On a side note, I’ve still not managed to get the mark off my shoes, but from a distance it still looks pretty!
Sweet and simple. Though I’m not sure I’d want it in my apartment. Maybe a restaurant.
We couldn’t find the descriptions, but from the smell of it, it appears to be a car made of flour! I wonder how they got it here………
A plastic black dog at the entrance. See all those cameras in the background? It really wasn’t just me!
Can you see the owl? The stripes of color also reminds me Paul Smith!
Wow. the Micky/Jesus sculpture is chillingly powerful.
Wow, pretty much every artwork you have posted has sent a little thrill (or a chill) down my spine.
The floor with all the little people makes me feel happy – I noticed your shoes (which you mentioned had been ruined after a month) are looking like they are in good shape in this picture 🙂
