K11’s second annual Art Karnival opens its doors to great fanfare as we blur the lines between digital and physical in a celebration of art and culture.
Dive into a cornucopia of artworks that challenge the notion of what’s real and tangible (and what's not). Highlights include:
HΞXAVΞRSΞ, Don Diablo
One of two editions debuting globally in Hong Kong and Shanghai's K11, HΞXAVΞRSΞ is a multimedia “phygital” NFT sculpture, and a gateway to the metaverse.
I hope…, Chiharu Shiota
The centrepiece of this year’s Art Karnival, this immersive installation of steel boats and 5,000 handwritten letters float in an ocean of collective wishes towards uncharted waters.
The Eve, David Altmejd
Canadian artist David Altmeijd's work often explores the relationship between the body and architecture, inviting viewers to reflect on blurred boundaries.
Beethoven's Trumpet (With Ear), Opus 127, John Baldessari
Do you hear that? A melody from Beethoven String Quartet No. 12 in E-flat major, Op. 127 plays when visitors speak into the bell of the sculptural trumpet.
Red Nails Model, Martin Margiela
The "designer's designer" Martin Margiela reflects the notion of artificial female beauty with oversized crimson acrylic nails as a symbol of beauty in the fragile and fleeting.
