unnamed (12)Joining Hong Kong’s Hollywood Road art trail, the multi-sensory art gallery, The Popsy Room, is now open to visitors and artists alike. A revolutionary concept found by creative catalyst and visionary Jennifer Chung, The Popsy Room was designed to be a haven and platform for artists to collaborate and experiment with different mediums, extending beyond the mere visual to venture into experiential arts through the five senses.

The Popsy Room’s inaugural exhibition, Meditation and Megrim, is a unique orchestration of visual art, music, scent, and culinary creations that promises to immerse visitors in a whimsical world of inspired creativity exploring the dichotomy between the contemplation provoked by meditation and unease instilled by megrim.unnamed (13)

Visitors entering the gallery are invited to not only look at the art, but also to take a whiff of the custom blended aromas, sip the fragrant tea, and listen to the specially created sounds, all inspired by the art itself. For those wanting more, The Popsy Room offers a reservation-only gastronomic experience where culinary arts are added to the mix in the form of a degustation menu paired to the artwork.

“Hong Kong’s art scene is evolving very quickly, and people want to understand art more intimately,” says Chung. “With the friendships I’ve made with established and developing artists over the years, my hope is to create a space where their work could be experienced fully. Involving all five senses will not only allow people to experience the art as a final product, but will also give them better insight into the process and emotions involved in the making of the art.”

The gallery aims also to become a platform for the artists involved, nurturing collaborations and cultural exchanges that will foster further creativity within the city. Its upcoming calendar of events includes pop-ups, workshops, creative discussion panels, and different collaborators presenting new exhibitions every month.
