Hong Kong Art Basel




So many Art Fairs in May, so many different destinations to choose, but there was one, that I was still missing and Hong Kong, the independent state of the Chinese Republic was just perfect for a nice escape.

Hong Kong gained its independence from Great Britain in 1997 but almost immediately became a state under the political protection of China. The most british of the Asian cities is a great Megapolis with hundreds of Art Galleries like Lary Gagosyan's, White Cube, Simon Lee Gallery, Sotheby's and many more. No wonder the city of Hong Kong has been chosen for the Art Space dedicated to the biggest Art event like Art Basel, presenting as much of the Asian Art as one can imagine.




Starting from this duck for example. This 16 mt height baby toy had a great impact on the crowd. I could hardly get thru people taking pictures of this Art Object.

The inside Art Fair objects were absolutely amazing. This installation for example is called "Accommodating the Epic Dispersion - On Non cathartic Volume of Dispersion" by Haegue Yang
Can you repeat it?
