Langham Place HK lobby to host sculpture exhibition
Internationally renowned Chinese sculptor, Luo Zhenhong, is to hold his next exhibition in the lobby of Langham Place hotel between 22 February and 18 April 2011.
Luo’s exhibition ‘Mirror Mirror On The Wall’ will star 109 caricature sculptures posing on a destroyed Mini Cooper fresh from the wrecker’s yard. Luo, who is just 29, has been called the ‘pioneer of animamix’.
Referring to the hotel’s collection of 1,500 works of Chinese art, General Manager, Shaun Campbell, said; “It often plays a key reason in why our guests choose us. Our art tells great stories about the culture we operate in and I’ve had many guests tell me they chose us because they like the thought of sleeping under the same roof as work by the likes of Wang Guangyi, Yue Minjun and Jiang Shuo. We always want to keep things fresh though, so to add to our guest experience with art of Luo’s calibre is brilliant.”
The exhibition is a collaboration between Luo Zhenhong, Langham Place hotel and the hotel’s art consultant Angela Li. Members of the public can view Luo’s work free of charge on the lobby level of the hotel. Langham also offers a free iPod tour of key art pieces within the hotel.
