Swung by the press preview of Hong Kong Eye at Saatchi Gallery earlier today. Really glad I did too.
Featuring more than 50 works by 18 top emerging artists from Hong Kong, this show is the largest ever touring international showcase to date of Hong Kong contemporary art. The majority of work has never been shown outside of Asia before including: Amy Cheung’s full-size wooden tank which visitors can enter and operate. It’s amazing and well worth a visit in and of itself. I also got a real kick out of viewing Adrian Wong’s large scale moving plush toy sculptures.
Hong Kong Eye opens to the public 5 December and runs until 12 January 2013. Saatchi Gallery is located at Duke Of York Square in Chelsea, SW3 4SQ. More at saatchi-gallery.co.uk. Check it out!
