I hope…, Chiharu Shiota

The centrepiece of this year’s Art Karnival, this immersive installation of steel boats and 5,000 handwritten letters float in an ocean of collective wishes towards uncharted waters.

The Eve, David Altmejd

Canadian artist David Altmeijd's work often explores the relationship between the body and architecture, inviting viewers to reflect on blurred boundaries.

Beethoven's Trumpet (With Ear), Opus 127, John Baldessari

Do you hear that? A melody from Beethoven String Quartet No. 12 in E-flat major, Op. 127 plays when visitors speak into the bell of the sculptural trumpet.

Studio by Zhang Enli

Studio explores the relationship between the past and the present, and is a reproduction of Zhang Enli’s old 9-sq.-m. studio where he worked after graduating from college in Shanghai.

Red Nails Model, Martin Margiela

The "designer's designer" Martin Margiela reflects the notion of artificial female beauty with oversized crimson acrylic nails as a symbol of beauty in the fragile and fleeting.


A gateway into the metaverse, HΞXAVΞRSΞ is a multimedia “phygital” NFT sculpture that illustrates the visionary Dutch artist's idea of the future.

One Minute Sculptures, Erwin Wurm

Redefining what a sculpture is and how the public engages with them, Erwin Wurm’s performance work challenges viewers to take part in unconventional interactions — becoming sculptures themselves in the process.
