Emmanuelle Moureaux's 'Slices of Time' exhibition at Now Gallery

Posted on February 10, 2020 by Toothpicker

 
I have been a fan of Tokyo-based French architect Emmanuelle Moureaux and her colour-driven architecture for some time. Since 1996, she has been living in Tokyo where she established Emmanuelle Moureaux architecture + design in 2003. I have never actually seen Moureaux's architecture and installations in real life, so I was really [...]

The splendid Dale Chihuly exhibition at Kew Gardens

Posted on November 2, 2019 by Toothpicker

Sapphire Star, 2010

 
I am not sure why it took me so long to visit the 'Chihuly - Reflections on nature' exhibition at Kew Gardens, but I finally managed to catch it a few days before it ended. It was not the best day to visit Kew, but the autumn foliage made up [...]

A visionary's mind: Stanley Kubrick exhibition at the Design Museum

Posted on September 6, 2019 by Toothpicker

 
Although I haven't seen all the art and design exhibitions in London this year, but out of all the ones that I have seen, I would say the Stanley Kubrick exhibition is the cream of the crop (alongside with Christian Dior at the V & A); it is certainly the best exhibition [...]

Wong Ping: Heart Digger at Camden Arts Centre, London

Posted on August 30, 2019 by Toothpicker

 
One of my favourite art organisations in London is the Camden Arts Centre. The reason is quite simple: they are not mainstream, and they always take risks. While many famous art institutions like the Royal Academy of Art and the Tate rely heavily on big names and blockbuster shows, Camden Arts Centre [...]

William Morris' Red House in Bexleyheath

Architecture in Bexleyheath
 
Although I live in London, there are still many areas of the city that I am unfamiliar with or have never been to. I have long wanted to visit William Morris' former residence Red House in Bexleyheath, but somehow never got round to it. Since August is a quiet [...]

Tribute to Mono-Ha exhibition at Cardi Gallery in London

Posted on June 12, 2019 by Toothpicker

 
While I was walking around Green Park one afternoon, I stumbled upon a poster outside of the Cardi Gallery with this title: 'Tribute to MONO-HA' (13 March - 26th July 2019). I was not only surprised but extremely excited since it is rare to see collective work associated with this art movement [...]

Tsz Shan Monastery & Buddhist Art Museum, Hong Kong

Posted on June 4, 2019 by Toothpicker

 
Of course we all know this: money can't buy you happiness. But for Li Ka-shing, Asia's riches man, money can buy him a Buddhist Monastery, and possibly nirvana. I have wanted to visit Tsz Shan Monastery funded by the Li Ka Shing Foundation since its opening four years ago. However, the online [...]

Hong Kong heritage: Tai Kwun 2010 vs 2019

Posted on May 25, 2019 by Toothpicker

 
Since its opening in mid 2018, Tai Kwun (means 'big station' in Cantonese) has become the hottest heritage destintation in Hong Kong. Located at the eastern end of Hollywood Road, the 300,000sq ft compound comprises three declared monuments: the former Central Police Station, former Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison. The revitalisation project is [...]

Noguchi for Danh Vo: Counterpoint at M+ Pavilion, Hong Kong

Posted on May 23, 2019 by Toothpicker

 

 
I have always been fascinated by Japanese American modernist artist, designer and landscape architect Isamu Noguchi's work, yet I have never visited his museum in New York even though I used to live there. I have seen his work at MOMA and at other art institutions in America, but oddly enough [...]
