Patricia Piccinini’s HOPE Exhibition In Hong Kong

Surrealist Installations That Explore The Effects Of Tampering With Nature

2023 May 24 - 2023 Sep 03

HOPE Exhibit tai kwun

Visit Tai Kwun Contemporary from now till September 3rd to experience Patricia Piccinini’s HOPE – a  ground-breaking large-scale summer exhibition of sculptures, paintings and moving images.

Renowned artist Piccinini’s works have been shown worldwide and even at a pavilion presentation at the Venice Biennale in 2003. She questions scientific progress and mankind’s destructive power over nature, yet remains hopeful – hence the title of the exhibition HOPE – and evokes tenderness, care, and empathy through her work. The result is some hyper-realistic sculptures and installations of which Celestial Fields is the largest: a vast immersive installation comprising of 4,500 individual flower stems sprouting from the floor and ceiling. Another highlight of the exhibition is Strand – an exclusive commission for JC Contemporary, where strands of hair cascade from the ceiling, through the iconic spiral staircase. In The Supporter, Piccinini explores the symbiotic relationship between humans and animals, and The Observer shows a young figure peering curiously down from a precarious stack of mass-produced chairs. Click here for all the exhibit’s highlights.

At a time when artificial intelligence is slowly permeating several aspects of our daily lives, her work on the notion of interdependence between humans and objects is more important than ever. An exhibition that is thought-provoking and not to be missed. Book your tickets here through Klook.

Opening times: Tuesday-Sunday, 11am-7pm

Art and science lovers, or people who are passionate about the intersect of both.

What Else:​

Although admission for children under five is free, some figures and representations may be disturbing to young kids due to their lifelike yet surreal nature. Check out the pictures and website first.
