As K11 MUSEA ushers in its first anniversary, the city’s cultural-retail destination reflects the city’s harbourfront culture with exciting art and cultural offerings.
Best known for investigating social, cultural, and political structures by creating artworks that engage with their surrounding contexts, Danish-Norwegian artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset’s meticulously tailored architectural installations put site-specific works in dialogue with existing spaces. Van Gogh’s Ear is a sculpture that takes the form of a swimming pool sitting upright. With its cyan blue interior encompassed by a white edge, and elements like a stainless steel ladder, lights around the inner perimeter, and a diving board, the work reminds the viewer of a real garden pool. Located at the centre of Hong Kong, the artwork stands in surreal contrast against the city’s busy urban landscape.
As the title suggests, the evocation of artist Vincent Van Gogh’s missing ear opens up the possibility for a different perception of the form itself and demonstrates a witty take on the modern system of visual semiotics.
