The renowned Naked Flowers interactive exhibition will be on view in Hong Kong for the first time, giving visitors the chance to participate in a multisensory experience where they can “learn the secrets of flowers”. The event, helmed by Japanese artist Ryotaro Muramatsu of the NAKED, INC art collective, will be held at 1881 Heritage from April 27 to October 27.

Visitors can explore the Naked Big Book, Big Flower Garden, and Wild Flower Garden rooms.

Visitors can walk through eight different participatory rooms, starting with ‘Naked Big Book’ — a digital art installation that uses projection mapping on a life-size book to create “an original naked design”. They will then walk amid the scattered petals of the ‘Flower Path’ towards the ‘Big Flower Garden’, where they can witness the lifespan of a flower and discover the golden ratio within it.

Other installations include the Microscopy of Flowers, Mosaic Flower Garden, and Ousai Garden rooms.

In the ‘Wild Flower Garden’, visitors can take on the form of a butterfly and play with flowers, while they can learn about various seasonal flowers in the ‘Mosaic Flower Garden’. The ‘Microscopy of Flowers’ is a kaleidoscope-like space with mirrors that rotate in every direction to reflect digital art, while the ‘Ousai Garden’ features projection mapping of the ‘Naked Flowers’ signature cherry blossom art.
