The “moon” is the theme, with four local artists commissioned by the Tai Kwun Store in collaboration with Tai Kwun Contemporary: Chow Chun Fai, Ho Sin Tung, Onion Peterman and Pak Sheung Chuen. The four artists created four moon-themed round mats, with its water and heat-proof bottom and a soft top surface, has a diameter of 1.5m—great for 4-5 people enjoying a picnic. Just roll it up and carry on your shoulder. The mat is portable enough to be used on outings anytime—a functional and artistic piece now available at the store!

Taxi to the Moon (Artist │ Chow Chun Fai)│$320

With anamorphosis—a distorted perspective—the audience will see a recognizable image from a specific vantage point.

You may take a perfect photo of the taxi at a distance of 4 meters away from this mat.

Nocturnal Animals (Artist │ Ho Sin Tung)│$320

Creatures moving about in the night, scampering in silence, their round eyes wide open.

Underground Moon (Artist │ Onion Peterman)│$320

In this city full of bright lights, we don’t often get to see the clear starry skies. So I dug a hole and planted the moon in the ground.

Sacred-Object (CAAR4-16#DJ): Judge's-Wig (Artist │ Pak Sheung Chuen)│$320

Since 2015, Pak Sheung Chuen has been intensely involved in creating artistic sketches of law and jurisprudence in Hong Kong.

The reoccurring spectral pattern in this image is inspired by Hong Kong materiality, spirituality and culture. Thus he hopes to illuminate new ideas about the city of Hong Kong for the Tai Kwun Mid-Autumn Festival gathering.


Tai Kwun’s Public Art Collection

Tai Kwun Contemporary has commissioned five local and international artists to create public artworks for Tai Kwun. Inspired by these the Tai Kwun store offers some limited collectible items. Bring them home now!

The Japanese artist Izumi Kato (b.1969) depicts human-like creatures that probe real or imagined sources of life. Available for the first time—exclusively for Tai Kwun—as a transparent coloured figurine, this vinyl doll references Kato’s iconic and limited "soft vinyl figurine" series which he began in 2010 and further contributed to his signature soft vinyl sculptures. The figurines refer to Kato’s ongoing experiments with materiality as a volatile element. Their significance lies in their pulsating yet contemplative existence, which subtly evolves beyond process and creation to attain a spirit of their own.
