23 May - 31 MayFree
The Parade Ground is set to be transformed into a unique garden full of light, colour, and sound by the Asian debut of Unfurl from 23 to 31 May, with installations that enchant both crowds and individuals.
Nature, art and technology have combined to create this visual spectacle consisting of 19 plants, nine of which are massive robots. The interactive, gentle giants in Unfurl are made from fabric and air, towering as high as five metres. They form a dreamscape where plants can sense that you’ve come to visit and thus reach out to connect, enabling a joyful experience not to be missed that celebrates the wonder and intelligence of nature’s design sensibilities, and makes space for human connection and play.
ABOUT THE ARTIST / ORGANISERFor over half a decade, Tai Kwun has delighted and enlightened visitors and guests, immersing them in arts, culture and heritage. This month Tai Kwun celebrates its fifth anniversary, inviting you to feel your heart beat with us, as we unveil spectacular performances and exhibitions that honour the community for helping to transform the compound into the extraordinary space it is today and will continue to be in the future.
Since opening its doors to the public five years ago, the heritage site has come alive with culture, heritage and internationally renowned art exhibitions, musical and performing arts performances, films, docent tours and more. Over 12 million visitors have visited Tai Kwun over the years, enjoying the 3,900 programmes that have graced the galleries, venues and shops within the compound.
While The Hong Kong Jockey Club conserved and revitalised Tai Kwun, and through its Charities Trust provides the core funding for Tai Kwun’s arts and heritage programmes, Tai Kwun belongs to the people of Hong Kong as they are the true owners of the heritage site. In celebration of its fifth anniversary, Tai Kwun is launching a myriad of exciting art and culture programmes under the Feel Your Heart Beat initiative, bringing back treasured moments while creating new transformative experiences that touch the community to become the vibrant heart of Hong Kong. The abstract form of a beating heart represents Tai Kwun's mission in promoting cultural participation and community engagement, and visitors are invited to experience the city's finest artistic and cultural delights, all the while feeling their hearts beat inside the historical compound of Tai Kwun.
