Acclaimed artist Florentijn Hofman brings his inimitable brand of fun to
The Hong Kong outlet of Whitestone Gallery at H Queen’s (80 Queen’s Road Central) presents Play Around the World, a gallery exhibition of globally renowned Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman. Best known for his large-scale urban installations including Rubber Duck and Hippopothames, this is Hofman’s first solo presentation in an Asian gallery space. The artist debuts a new series of works inspired by Line (his line drawings series) and rescaled ceramic sculptures from his much-loved public installations. Bringing international projects such as Rubber Duck and Fat Monkey into a gallery space is the key idea; Hofman specifically chose to use ceramic for the small-scale sculptures because it evokes the clean and pure shapes of the original works with a sophisticated sheen. The exhibition runs until July 1. (whitestone-gallery.com)
