The Glorious Heritage
Presented by K11 Craft & Guild Foundation, The Glorious Heritage celebrates the age-old craftsmanship of Baibaoqian and Luodian inlay art. With antique masterpieces and reinterpreted craftwork by contemporary artisans and designers, the exhibition tells the story of the long-forgotten inlay art and how the endangered artistry can be innovatively adapted to modern living, which K11 MUSEA offers. The iridescent decorations of the inlay exhibits provide a shimmering kaleidoscope of colours against the gleaming backdrop of Gold Ball at K11 MUSEA.
Dating back to late Ming dynasty 400 years ago, Baibaoqian refers to the intricate wood inlay work comprised of variegated semi-precious materials. Each inlay component is skilfully carved separately before the pieces are assembled together to make up a pictorial image rich in colour, texture and depth.
With over 1,000 years of history dating back to the Tang dynasty, Luodian is a distinctive decorative method featuring Mother-of-Pearl inlay techniques. Luo refers to the texture of the inlay material while Dian refers to the decorative process.

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.
