Interact, enjoy, participate: Only 4 weeks remain for Harbour Arts Sculpture Park

March 19, 2018 Destination North Asia No Comments Email Email

With only 4 weeks to go, Hong Kong citizens and visitors are invited to interact with, participate at and enjoy Harbour Arts Sculpture Park, the city’s first international sculpture park offering a unique opportunity to experience world-class art set against the backdrop of Hong Kong’s iconic skyline.

New addition artwork by local artist Ko Sin Tung

Harbour Arts Sculpture Park lights up with new addition artwork Serene Green 清幽翠綠 (2018) by exhibiting artist Ko Sin Tung. The neon green installation in Western Garden projects the four Chinese characters Serene Green that translates to an environment surrounded by greenery, serenity, natures overwhelming charm, and its indisputable beauty. Ko presents a play on the conception and the irony embedded in the four words that customarily accompany the advertisements for luxury real-estate, and in this case a particular online advertisement of a flat located in Mid-levels West, Hong Kong.  Delving into Serene Green, Ko measures the power of the words that play a role of a crucial element in determining the action of acquiring real estate in the present-day.

Walk the park at night

Current works that come alive in the evenings are f / •w, 2017 by Tony Oursler, located at Hong Kong Arts Centre and can be seen between 7-11pm, and The Memories from The Tower of Light, 2017 by Wong Chi-yung, located at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.

A museum without walls, the sculpture park is accompanied by the ‘Harbour Arts Sculpture Park’ Jockey Club Arts Education Programme – an engaging and extensive programme of free workshops, educational activities, support tools, interactive guided tours and more. The aim is to encourage discussion of art in the city and create a culturally vibrant Hong Kong through the appreciation and learning of arts and culture as well as enhance accessibility of the arts at every level of the community.
