As city dwellers, we are so used to the presence of light that we have become blind to the myriad forms that light can assume. Light is not only a natural phenomenon but also a product of technological advancement. It is an empty signifier awaiting a narrative; it is undefined, fuzzy at the edges. Fluid and amorphous, light therefore has endless possibilities. When interacting with light, certain kinds of surfaces take on an iridescent sheen or reflect their surroundings, producing a shimmering or radiant ‘glow’.
由K11 Art Foundation主辦的「Glow Like That」是首場在Victoria Dockside舉行的當代藝術展覽，匯聚了16位來自中國、美國、日本等地的藝術家及組合，透過他們的繪畫、錄像、雕塑和裝置作品，揭示在光照飽和的時代裏「亮光」的各種呈現方式，隱喻它們在當代社會中的功用與象徵意義。
Presented by K11 Art Foundation as the first contemporary art exhibition held in Victoria Dockside, Glow Like That features 16 artists and collectives from countries including China, the US, and Japan, showcasing an impressive array of paintings, video works, sculptures, and installations. While some of the works demonstrate the various forms of ‘glow’ characteristic of this light-saturated era, others reveal their functions and symbolic significances in contemporary society.
「Glow Like That」帶來的耀眼光芒，與Victoria Dockside四周的景觀相互輝映。從展場向外眺望，滿目燈火璀璨，波光瀲灩的海港閃照眼前，啟發大家以新的角度感受城市的光彩繁華，思考光與日常生活的關係。
Brimming with beautiful imagery associated with light, Glow Like That also echoes the spectacular harbour view that the exhibition space overlooks. From the vantage point of Glow Like That in Victoria Dockside, visitors will feast on the opulence of the gleam and glimmer of the city. The glistering waves of the harbour and the exhibition shine a light on each other, bolstering one another’s splendour and sparking ruminations on the relationship between light and everyday life.
