New, Artistic Take on Red Packet with 4 Chinese New Year Blooms
In its latest collaboration with local artist, K11 ushers in a colourful year by blending modern minimalism with technicolour to reimagine the cherry blossom, orchid, bamboo and chrysanthemum for traditional Chinese New Year celebration. Informed by his expertise in both digital and traditional illustration, Shun-hong Chan presents the four Chinese New Year blooms in watercolour and clean lines against the awe-inspiring backdrop of acid colours with gold-stamped details. The coalescence of traditional and novel elements fills the New Year with an innovative and artistic vibe.

‘GLASSBLOOM’ Interactive Art Exhibition Dazzles with 10 Photo Spots
Glass is said to have been invented as early as 2,000 BC in ancient Egypt. The molten sand is vitrified under different fusion temperature to refract multi-chromatic light on its surface at different angles with different finishes. K11 concludes this year with an exhibition that brings together generation Z students from the Department of Cultural and Creative Arts at the Education University of Hong Kong to rethink the different attributes of GLASS --- Gravity, Life, Art, Sound and Story, underscore the power of traditional iconography, embody art education, and reflect the beauty, vulnerability, and transformative power of glass. The reflection properties of different vitric materials are stretched to the limit to create a psychedelic wonderland of colours and light in a magical setting!

Date: 24 January – 10 February 2019
Time: 12:00nn – 10:00pm
Venue: chi K11 art space (B2/F, K11 Art Mall)

 

1. No.1 Selfie Spot for the Romantics — 10m-long Fanciful Canopy

The marvellous world of glass is connected to the outside world by this 10m-long iridescent tunnel. The light-reflecting cellophane surface in a dazzling palette of colours runs along the lustrous 10m-long rainbow-like tunnel decked out in chromatic hues that blurs the lines between dream and reality and leads you on a journey of wonders.
2. No.1 Selfie Spot for Locals —
A Glitzy Ode to Diligent Hongkongers

Title: Skyscraper
Drawing inspiration from high rise window cleaners, this 6m-long artwork pays tribute to them for their behind-the-scene work, as well as all those who contribute their efforts behind the windows of the skyscrapers that define the glamourous skyline of Hong Kong on both sides of the Victoria Harbour.

 

3. No.1 Selfie Spot for Kidults —
9m-long Magical Spinning Wheel

Title: Life Wheel
Discarded bicycle wheels and glass materials are upcycled to form a 9m-long wall on which kaleidoscopic patterns are projected. The installation engages kids in a green lesson as they turn the multi-coloured life wheels to orchestrate light reflection and glass shards to create a shimmering feast for the eyes.

6. Our Collective Memory —
“Glasses of Water”
A giant pinball machine occupies a place in everyone’s childhood memory. While enjoying the game with your friends, the glass pinballs also fall into glass bottles of different heights to create sounds of different pitches that form a unique piece of music.

 

7. A Symphony of Glasses —
a Percussion Concert
This art installation formed by glass bottles is as much an eye candy as a musical instrument for song composition.
