The Peninsula Hotels in Hong Kong extends an invitation to all to partake in the festivities marking the revival of the hotel’s renowned international art initiative, “Art in Resonance.”

This comprehensive program, dedicated to showcasing groundbreaking artists and providing guests with immersive encounters, debuts at the esteemed Grande Dame with a breathtaking exhibition featuring the creations of four promising and visionary artists: Elise Morin, Kingsley Ng, Lachlan Turczan, and Saya Woolfalk.

Launched by The Peninsula in 2019, Art in Resonance serves as a platform that fosters mutual enrichment between innovative artists and hotel guests globally. Through the commissioning and presentation of fresh artworks, the initiative actively contributes to the cultural landscapes of the cities where its hotels are located.

Moreover, it offers guests the chance to interact with these cultural realms by exposing them to stimulating artworks and the visionary artists behind them.

Kingsley Ng has crafted a remarkable kinetic installation designed to float above the hotel’s entrance, utilizing a sequence of flowing, jade-hued ribbons to evoke themes of memory, truth, and the transient ocean currents that have drawn travelers to Hong Kong for generations.

Ng is an interdisciplinary artist and designer known for his conceptual, site-specific, and participatory projects. His artworks shed light on various sites and contexts, often bringing attention to the hidden or unnoticed aspects.

Lachlan Turczan presents a captivating sculpture that includes a parabolic mirror housing a pool of water. The water’s surface forms intricate patterns in response to low-frequency infrasonic tones, providing viewers with a mesmerizing and reflective journey into the realm of audible vibrations.

Turczan is an artist who investigates the effects of natural elements on perception, primarily working with water, light, and sound. He has orchestrated water and light displays for some of the globe’s largest fountains and showcased his kinetic sculptures and immersive light artworks in institutions worldwide, including SFMoMA in San Francisco.

Elise Morin’s shimmering sculpture, crafted from numerous outdated CDs that have been mechanically pulverized based on their security level, initially resembles a lavish palace. However, it serves as a subtle reflection on the environmental impact of waste accumulation rather than an extravagant spectacle. Morin’s artistic expression encompasses a diverse range of mediums, spanning from video art to expansive installations.

Central to her work is a reevaluation of landscape within contemporary art, alongside an examination of environmental concerns and the economic displacement of objects. Morin frequently incorporates elements from the natural world, emphasizing the “life cycle” of her creations and the ecological impact of their production and composition. Her artistic approach resonates with Minimalism, evident in her use of recycled materials and repetitive motifs.

Saya Woolfalk’s immersive digital meditation space offers a multisensory experience that delves into themes of ethnography and spirituality. Through kaleidoscopic video projections, viewers are enveloped in a captivating journey referencing cultural symbols such as mandalas and stained glass windows.

Drawing inspiration from science fiction and fantasy, Woolfalk embarks on a journey to reimagine the world across diverse dimensions. With roots stemming from her Japanese mother and African American father, she delves into the intricate layers of cultural hybridity.

The showcase will be on display at The Peninsula Hong Kong until May 17, 2024.
