Designed by the internationally celebrated architect Minsuk Cho, the founder of Mass Studies, chi art space Clear Water Bay is situated within the serene surroundings of Hong Kong. Backed by luscious green landscapes, and flanked by a linear row of newly built contemporary structures, the purpose built exhibition space was designed to house an annual art programme. The massive use of white concrete and bricks provides the minimalistic sculptural building with a touch of softness and fluidity, whilst the streamlined design of vast clear glass walls dissolve the boundaries between the inside and outside beckoning a relational dialogue of ‘Nature’ vs ‘Artificial’.
An expansive two-level exhibition space spread over 5400 sqft, chi art space Clear Water Bay will enable the K11 Art Foundation (KAF) to continue its mission of nurturing and promoting the development of contemporary art locally. The extended platform will welcome artists, curators and new audiences, enhancing access to contemporary art whilst stimulating cross-cultural dialogue to generate new thought, knowledge and ideas.
The upcoming exhibition The Garden will be served as a man-made garden where plants become artworks that interact with technology, re-creating various natural dynamics using installations, sounds, videos, and dance performance.
