Third display of "Art >< Creativity" exhibition series in Greater Bay Area open in Guangzhou (with photos)

     Co-organised by the Art Promotion Office and the Hong Kong Designers Association, the third exhibition "Mindscape Beyond the Landscape" of the "Art><Creativity" exhibition series in the Greater Bay Area has opened April 17 and will run until May 17 at Guangzhou International Grand City. Hong Kong artist Danny Lee and designer Chris Cheung, both inspired by the dynamic spirit of landscapes, hope that visitors can discover the extended meaning hidden in mountains and waters through the artworks, and begin a spiritual journey.
     Renowned Hong Kong sculptor Danny Lee's work "Change of State", a sculpture consisting of multiple sets of mirrors, is akin to a three-dimensional landscape painting. The stainless-steel facets reflect the faces of those who come close to the artwork, as well as the surrounding environment and people nearby, allowing them to become a part of the image in the mirror. Lee hope visitors will take time off their busy schedules to travel among the sculpted "mountains and waters" and be inspired. The installation designed by new media artist Chris Cheung, "Fall from the Yellow River", consists of a set of 16 transparent wine jars. The waterspouts in the jars cause the objects inside to separate and come together, which is a metaphor for separation and reunion in the vortex of time.
     The "Art><Creativity" exhibition series in the Greater Bay Area is presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, co-organised by the Art Promotion Office and the Hong Kong Designers Association, with Shenzhen Fringe Art Centre being the project partner. The series runs in four cities in the Greater Bay Area, namely Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Foshan, and Dongguan, and features six exhibitions showcasing the works of 12 Hong Kong artists and designers, as well as a Shenzhen media artist.
