This summer, Harbour City, the largest shopping mall in Hong Kong, teams up with SNARKITECTURE, the renowned New York-based collaborative and innovative design studio, to create their first interactive art installation in Hong Kong -- "BOUNCE". It is a tailor made art campaign from the idea of enlarging the ordinary bouncy ball to combine with their signature "pure and white design" staging on Harbour City's unique outdoor location from 10 Aug to 2 Sep, 2018. Meanwhile, an installation featuring a massive invasion of balls is also held at the Gallery by the Harbour.
Harbour City specially invites the New York design studio, SNARKITECTURE to create their first exhibition in Hong Kong. By transforming the familiar into the extraordinary, SNARKITECTURE makes architecture perform the unexpected. They have done an innovative signature installation "The Beach" in National Building Museum in Washington D.C., Paris, Bangkok and Sydney before. Their work received a lot of international media attention and become the "hot-pick" for many instagrammers.
"BOUNCE" is an immersive and interactive installation designed by SNARKITECTURE, which is building a large "stadium" situated along the Hong Kong waterfront. To investigate the boundaries between art and architecture, this time they are using the concept of "bouncy ball" to create a surreal interactive playground. The visitors are invited to roll, lift and toss hundreds of enlarged 300%, 1-meter diameter white "bouncy ball" in the outdoor stadium. The stadium is also an iconic cage structure defined by a series of white steel frames. The nature of the public art installation encourages visitors to create their own unique playing experiences. Kids and adults alike will enjoy their moments in this remarkable stadium.
SNARKITECTURE - Massive Invasion of Balls at Gallery by the Harbour
Gallery by the Harbour will also echo with the theme "BOUNCE" and use the massive invasion of white and silver large spheres to fill up the gallery. Visitors can enter the world of bouncy balls and take photos of the special design and installation. Besides, the gallery is also selling the limited edition merchandise of the exhibition which include "BOUNCE" tee, pin and bouncy balls.
