Design District Hong Kong #ddHK Unveils ‘Vivid Tsuen Wan’
August 21, 2023
Hong Kong’s creative tourism project, Design District Hong Kong (#ddHK), makes a grand comeback with the brand-new ‘Vivid Tsuen Wan’ event welcoming both locals and tourists to embark on a visually stimulating journey in the programme’s eponymous district.
Prominently placed across Tsuen Wan are seven exceptional public art installations. These artworks, created by both international and local artist maestros, are set to attract visitors as picturesque backdrops.
Vivid Tsuen Wan: Public Art Installations
Each installation brilliantly encapsulates Tsuen Wan's multifaceted allure, ensuring that everyone, be it a tourist or local, experiences the district's myriad cultural, creative, and gastronomical treasures.
A few standouts include 'Prismatic' by Craig & Karl, which sees Sai Lau Kok Garden transform into a landscaping piece weaving together the diverse aspects of Tsuen Wan; Andy Rementer’s maritime marvel at 'Tsuen Wan Park', which involves a massive 15-metre-long whale sculpture complemented by other whimsical ocean creatures; and 'Closely Knitted' on the Tai Ho Road Footbridge, turning an everyday pedestrian experience into a mesmerising tapestry journey, nodding to Tsuen Wan's textile industry heritage.
Mountain-to-Sea Festival Tsuen Wan and More
Beyond installations, the event offers a cornucopia of activities — from music performances to heritage workshops.
Kicking things off is the ‘Mountain-to-Sea Festival’ on Aug. 20. Noteworthy participants include renowned travel programme host Chris Leung, Charles Hu the ace Taiwanese photographer, and experts from Walk in Hong Kong, amongst others. Click here for the full roster and schedule.
