「香港文化矽谷」 K11 MUSEA 一周年限定國際級文化活動 | K11 MUSEA MARKS 1ST ANNIVERSARY WITH NEW ART AND CULTURAL HAPPENINGS

「香港文化矽谷」K11 MUSEA為尖沙咀海濱的文化零售新地標,踏入一周年,特別推出以維港海濱文化為主題的國際級文化藝術盛事,延續創意精神。K11 MUSEA 在10 月9 日至11 月8 日期間將策動多個超乎所想的藝術作品,其中最觸目的必定是全港首度亮相 – 由藝術家組合Elmgreen & Dragset 創作的9 米高巨型《梵高的耳朵》藝術裝置;與富藝斯帶來已故當代藝術奇才Keith Haring 經典作品之公開展示。

Since the opening of Rosewood last year, the harbourfront culture has been further elevated with the launch of K11 MUSEA – A Muse by the Sea.This pioneering cultural-retail destination is a one-of-a-kind space that fosters community and cross-cultural dialogue by bringing together creativity, culture and innovation in a kaleidoscope of inspiration. For its first anniversary, K11 MUSEA unveils an exciting array of new art and cultural happenings starting from 9 October to 8 November 2020. These include the striking nine-metre-tall sculpture Van Gogh’s Ear by Elmgreen & Dragset; a limited-time showcase of legendary pop artist Keith Haring’s iconic artworks presented by Phillips Auction House in the new K11 Art & Cultural Centre.

巨型《梵高的耳朵》藝術裝置香港首度亮相 掀起K11 MUSEA 一周年限定文化活動序章 Van Gogh’s Ear debuts as K11 MUSEA Marks its 1st Anniversary

為K11 MUSEA一周年活動揭開序幕的是藝術家組合Elmgreen & Dragset 創作的《梵高的耳朵》藝術裝置,以壯麗維港景色作背景,形成絕美畫面。來自挪威與丹麥的藝術家組合Elmgreen & Dragset 擅長將藝術品連結周邊環境,結合精心打造的建築裝置與特定場域,藉此探討社會及文化的意念。《梵高的耳朵》是一個9 米高直立的游泳池藝術裝置,池內的藍青色對比白色邊框,不銹鋼梯子、圍邊的燈和跳水台等元素使它更為逼真。藝術裝置放置在K11 MUSEA,身處鬧市中心,與香港的城市景觀形成了趣味盎然的反差。

Elmgreen & Dragset 喜歡以天馬行空手法呈現日常物件,打造似幻似虛的藝術裝置。他們曾於2005 年在美國德州一個沙漠進行《Prada Marfa》藝術項目,開設一所永不開門的冒牌Prada商店。這與《梵高的耳朵》的意念相近,與人們的習以為常造成強烈反差。《梵高的耳朵》在2016 年於紐約洛克斐勒中心( Rockefeller Center ) 首展已引來全球哄動,今次於香港首度亮相,藝術愛好者絕對不容錯過;再者,正值K11 MUSEA 一周年誌慶,Elmgreen & Dragset 更特別為裝置推出藝術模型,紀念裝置首次在港亮相。

Reflecting K11 MUSEA’s aim to create a harbourfront culture for the global community, this first anniversary sees the city’s first showcase of Van Gogh’s Earby Elmgreen & Dragset in the skyline of Hong Kong.  Best known for investigating social and cultural structures by creating artworks that engage with their surrounding contexts, Danish-Norwegian artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset’s Van Gogh’s Ear is a nine-metre-tall sculpture that takes the form of a swimming pool sitting upright. With its cyan blue interior encompassed by a white edge, and elements like a stainless steel ladder, lights around the inner perimeter, and a diving board, the work reminds the viewer of a real garden pool. Now at K11 MUSEA, Van Gogh’s Ear stands in surreal contrast against Hong Kong’s busy urban landscape.

Similar to the duo’s critically acclaimed 2005 project Prada Marfa—a faux and forever-closed Prada boutique located in the middle of the desert in Texas—Van Gogh’s Ear isolates a familiar object and renders it devoid of function via its displacement, playfully contradicting expectations. The talk-of-the-town since its debut at Rockefeller Center in New York City in 2016, Van Gogh’s Ear at K11 MUSEA is a must-visit destination to snap a magical moment and appreciate art. To mark K11 MUSEA’s 1st Anniversary, the duo has also turned this iconic sculpture into a miniature artefact to mark this city’s first showcase at Hong Kong’s most exciting cultural-retail destination.

與富藝斯打造《Keith Haring: Falling Up》於K11 Art & Cultural Centre 展出Keith Haring: Falling Uppresented by Phillips Auction House at K11 Art & Cultural Centre

剛於上月開幕、位於K11 MUSEA 6 樓的 全新K11 Art & Cultural Centre的展品彰顯了香港作為沿海城市擁有的多元文化,並促進跨界的文化交流。富藝斯拍賣行由10 月9 日至18 日於K11 Art & Cultural Centre 舉辦《Keith Haring: Falling Up》。

作為K11 MUSEA一周年所舉辦的其中一項國際級藝術盛事,《Keith Haring: Falling Up》所呈現的作品包含Keith Haring短暫而輝煌的藝術生涯中一系列極具辨識度的畫作和雕塑,還有一組來自藝術家相識之人的紀念品,希望透過這些經典之作,領略這位普普大師的創作傳奇,而現場展出的作品和紀念品可透過富藝斯私人洽購部門購藏。

Keith Haring 是20 世紀最著名的國際街頭藝術家之一,年少時曾擔任草圖員,1978年移居紐約,入讀紐約視覺藝術學院。作品表面看似充滿玩味易懂,但卻微妙地從多角度探討諸如死亡、性及戰爭之類的嚴肅議題。Keith Haring 最初在紐約地鐵車站的黑色牆壁以白色粉筆塗鴉出粗輪廓線條的圖形,逐漸形成其個人獨特的塗鴉符號美學風格,更迅速廣泛地將這些符號應用在公共地方的壁畫、繪圖以至T 恤各種媒介,因而廣受注目。他的作品模糊了高級藝術與通俗文化的界限。

除了在K11 Art & Cultural Centre 舉辦 《Keith Haring: Falling Up》,展出Keith Haring 真跡作品之外,富藝斯拍賣行亦將於10 月10 日香港時間下午6 時30 分及下午8 時在K11 MUSEA 水簾舞台Sunken Plaza 放映紀錄片《Keith Haring: Street Art Boy》,詳述藝術家短暫而璀璨的一生,讓人更了解他在1980 年代對普普藝術的深遠影響。

Phillips auction house presentsKeith Haring: Falling Upat K11 MUSEA’s new K11 Art & Cultural Centre in Hong Kong from 9 to 18 October. Discover 6F, the new floor at K11 MUSEA with curation that reflects the city’s harbourfront culture and represents the fluid exchange of ideas in a multicultural, multilingual society like Hong Kong.

To mark K11 MUSEA’s first anniversary, this exciting showcase with Keith Haring: Falling Up presented by Phillips auction house features a broad-ranging selection of works by the legendary pop artist Keith Haring across his all-too-brief career, the showcase encompasses his instantly recognizable paintings, drawings, painted aluminium sculptures, and a grouping of memorabilia that are available for purchase through Phillips’ Private Sales.

One of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century, Keith Haring was a skilled craftsman at an early age and moved to New York in 1978 to attend the School of Visual Arts. While seemingly playful and transparent, Haring dealt with weighty subjects such as death, sex and war, enabling subtle and multiple interpretations. Haring refined a visual language of symbols, which he called icons, the origins of which began with his trademark linear style scrawled in white chalk on the black unused advertising spaces in subway stations. Haring developed and disseminated these icons far and wide, in his vibrant and dynamic style, from public murals and paintings to t-shirts. His art bridged high and low, erasing the distinctions between rarefied art and popular culture.

In conjunction with Keith Haring: Falling Up, Phillips will present a documentary which explores the artist’s life and career, titled Keith Haring: Street Art Boy, at K11 MUSEA’s outdoor immersive venue Sunken Plaza on 10 October at 6:30pm and 8pm Hong Kong time. These programmes offer a look into the oeuvre of an artist who forever transformed the role of street art within the public sphere.
