Sculpture on Hong Kong Sea

Sunday 29 November 2009 (One day only: 9am till late).

Seaview Promenade from Deep Water Bay to Repulse Bay.




30 artists will place sculptures along the promenade for one day.

Come and enjoy a walk through ‘Sculpture on Hong Kong Sea’ any time on Sunday, 29 November. 30 sculptures will be placed along the Seaview Promenade between Deep Water Bay and Repulse Bay. The wide Seaview Promenade is 1.2km long and is easily accessible from either side.

Sculpture on Hong Kong Sea is an outdoor dialogue between the public and 19 local and 11 overseas artists. Every artwork is an opportunity to see, touch, appreciate, reflect, dream and enjoy a new experience. The setting provides for a rediscovery of Hong Kong’s beautiful southern coastline. Here the sea, the sound and smells of nature, act as an invigorating tonic. The views offer a magnificent backdrop: an unrivalled theatre for art to stand out.

The theme for this first year is Lightness: What is here today and is gone tomorrow. To quote the Artistic Director Ludwig: “This first show is only one day: Only one instant for the art and the viewer to face each other, only one moment for the art to become part of reality. This is about life - the impermanence of things“.


Two examples of concepts from which 30 artists were selected - their final art is on display for one day along the promenade between Repulse Bay and Deep Water Bay, Sunday November 29.

30 artists. 30 Sculptures. One Day.

The Judging Committee comprising of Oscar Ho Hing-Kay, Lukas Tam Wai Ping and John Batten, under guidance of the Artistic Director Ludwig, invited artists and selected artworks.
