The Hong Kong Museum of Art’s latest outdoor exhibition, Harbour Wonder, features playful versions of landmarks that are familiar to every Hongkonger: a public swimming pool and the Symphony of Lights. The installations were created by two city artists — Chan Wai-lap and Tsoi Wai-kuen — and are set up in the vicinity of the Tsim Sha Tsui Harbourfront.

Chan’s work, titled ‘Some of us are looking at the stars’, invites visitors to step into a large swimming pool with mosaic tiles, a sun lounger and an umbrella in front of the museum. The artist often uses swimming pools in his work and his latest installation makes use of the layout, sound, the play of light and dark, weather, and audience involvement to make it a unique experience.

Tsoi’s ‘A symphony of delights’ comprises a set of six art installations inspired by iconic buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbour, such as the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, and the International Financial Centre. There is also a printed canvas as part of the installation that showcases detailed patterns of famous buildings on both sides of the harbour.

Harbour Wonder is free to view, and is at Art Square at the forecourt of the Hong Kong Museum of Art until March 24, 2024.
