Date of Visit: May 14 2014
This is the 2nd Hong Kong edition of Art Basel, the world’s premier show of Modern and Contemporary Art. I was lucky that I got a free ticket.
Otherwise, I would have to fork out HK$300 for a day pass like what my friend did…
Is this Art?? I can do this too! In fact, there were several mono-coloured canvasses in the exhibition. Perhaps done by big names. And we all know, any doodles by big names conjures a hefty price tag (belt our your number Jessie J!)
This is kooky! So cool and psychedelic! Reminds me of Austin Powers! Yeah, Baby!
The bizarre. A life-sized mannequin of a hairy young girl cradling deformed baby??
Totally outrageous! A dog encased inside glass bubbles?? SPCA where art thou?!
Waste not, want not... the next time you stop by for a Chinese, remember to bring home the scallop shells.
The comical – the singing Banana Trio! Inspiration from Casper The Friendly Ghost?
A wake-up call, don’t eat too much
But don’t starve yourself to the bones either!
A bit of reality call – the post 80s generation? Demonstrations! Protests!
A bit of logic! My favourite 3 Ms: Chocolates, Junk and Post-It Notes!
Buddha sitting on a pile of used clothing.
Shredded papers as sculptural art?
What about a mangled smashed-up car?
Something contemporarily religious…
Art Basel is basically an art expo with over 245 leading galleries from 39 countries. Heck! I even met a sister of a friend who runs a gallery in Kuala Lumpur!!
I spent over 2 hours at the expo…and was dead tired…
Check out this man face-planted on the floor! Bet he WAS really tired! Zzzz…
Any qualms? Talk to me, better still, email me!
