And it is kicking off in 2016 in the form of a Sculpture Park!
This green wonder world of Art X Nature will be open to the public for the main reason of boosting Hong Kong resident’s imaginative link between art and their city.
When asked what I personally felt about what this means to me as a Muma & a Hong Kong residence – this is what I had to say…
“What do you feel is the interconnection between “Sculpture Park” and imagination?”
I feel a Hong Kong Sculpture Park forces the imagination of HK’s residence to expand and connect with the environment that the sculpture’s are placed in. It is a fantastic way to both feel on par with your environment and explore it in a creative and playful manner. For me, as a Mum, this gives me an awesome…
“From museums to college campuses, sculpture park are as popular as ever in the world. Why does Hong Kong deserves a “Sculpture Park”?
Hong Kong is a city that is incredibly fast paced and demanding, it is relentless! So to place within the craziness of Hong Kong a sculpture park that enables our residents to stop – take a breather – and visually explore the city while in sync with their imaginations is a wonderful way to promote a creative balance that Hong Kong needs.
3. The Sculpture Park is an interactive experience, where the landscape and human interrelate through a process of discovery, enjoyment and triggers the imagination. What does the sculpture park inspire you most?
As an interactive experience, I love how the sculpture park draws you in to an artistic mindset while still allowing you to keep present and in connection with your surroundings. This balance of freedom of imagination while being grounded and in connection with your city is a beautiful and important one. It is this balance that inspires me as a creative and also allows me to project that creativity into my work as I can draw on an artistic flow but also relate it to my surroundings, and my home – which is Hong Kong.
This is something I want my little one to learn – the importance of being able to dream, but also being grounded – both of these are reflected in a Sculpture Park – we are SO excited about it’s opening in 2016!
4. Will the sculpture park make a big difference in your families life?
The Sculpture Park will be a place I can retreat to for for my own artistic grounding as well as a place I can take my daughter, Isabella Zia to enable her to start interacting with her surroundings in a way that promotes imagination on a much grander level.
I’m looking forward to having an area like this in Hong Kong, something that’s all about exhibiting nature…
