+852: Hong Kong Through the Eyes of Seven Artists
Why We Recommend it
Bringing together distinctive, accessible artworks in a variety of media by seven artists from different countries, +852 is a visual love letter to Hong Kong.
As its title suggests, +852 is an exhibition of paintings, photography and sculpture art that presents an array of perspectives on Hong Kong.
On show are Italian painter Francesco Lietti’s abstract and colourful works that capture the city’s famous harbour skyline; Israeli photographer Anat Givon’s graphic and joyful digitally manipulated creations; Hong Kong documentary photographer Simon Wan’s multiple exposures; Hong Kong photojournalist Vincent Yu’s visual record of the city’s threatened coastlines; Chinese photographer Zeng Nian’s large portraits made of 50 individual images; French artist Polo Bourieau’s mirror-polished sculptures, which are in turn captured in different settings by British photographer and Zolima CityMag contributor William Furniss for a photo series that will also be exhibited at +852.
