"Art >< Creativity" exhibition series in Greater Bay Area opens in Zhuhai (with photos)

     Co-organised by the Art Promotion Office under the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and the Hong Kong Designers Association, the second exhibition of the second round of the "Art >< Creativity" exhibition series in the Greater Bay Area is on display in Zhuhai from today (October 28) until December 18 at Coast Gallery. Following the theme of "From Infinity to the End", Hong Kong artist Sim Chan and design group LLAB Design raise awareness of the contradictions between humanity and the environment through their art installations, from the perspectives of cityscape and natural vegetation respectively. Their works aim to awaken people from the infinite consumption of nature and put a stop to the possible disappearance of scenery and things.
‚Äč     Sim Chan uses a series of lighting installations to construct the endless skyline of a city, allowing the visitors to ply the familiar yet strange hustle and bustle of everyday life between reality and the unreal mirror images. LLAB Design makes reference to over 100 rare plant species that are either extinct or on the brink of extinction, using seemingly strong but fragile material to show the robust beauty of the plants. They hope to enable the visitors to reflect on how few species of flowers may continue to bloom in the future, given endless urban development.
     The "Art >< Creativity" exhibition series in the Greater Bay Area is presented by the LCSD and co-organised by the Art Promotion Office and the Hong Kong Designers Association, with the Shenzhen Fringe Art Centre as the project partner. The first exhibition of the second round series was successfully held in Huizhou earlier, and the remaining three exhibitions will be held in Zhongshan, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing to further foster cultural exchanges among the cities in the area.
     To help the public enjoy the exhibition anytime and anywhere, a 360-degree virtual tour of the exhibition will be uploaded to the website.
