Art Central HK 2015.1

For a number of years, there's been a plastic art event which every art lover in Hong Kong and in the Asia Pacific area would look forward to, "Art HK", which has been taken over 2 years ago by Art Basel. Starting this year, there's another big art event called "Art Central", held the Central harbor front, with participation from 75 international galleries from more than 20 countries. It's housed in a huge temporary pavillion covering some 10,000 square meters. Out of curiosity, I paid a short visit to the exhibition this afternoon. There's some interesting finds.



This looks like a block of wood.


But it isn't


it's made of paper, a work completed 2014


A close up of the block



This looks like a bust



But the top of the bust can be lifted.



and bent!  It's the work of Li Hongbo (李洪波) done in 2013.

  This violin looks suspended inside a wire-mesh bubble

A bronze. What could those two heavy balls in his hands that weigh him down be?


This work called Corona by Antonio Santin looks as if it has been propped up


and this one too. But they are not. it's just an optical illusion
