THERE SHOULD BE NO END TO EXPERIMENTATION | STEPHANIE SO


Yesterday, I mentioned that I recently went to see ZAHA HADID: There Should Be No End To Experimentation, a Zaha Hadid's exhibition in ArtisTree, Hong Kong. In fact, it was only a few days ago that I went to see it. During the course of these 3 days I have already went to 4 major art exhibitions in Hong Kong, and I have to say I am well chuffed of myself because I don't think I have ever seen this much art during such a short amount of time in my life, ever before. All these walking totally killed my legs but Art Month only happens once a year and to be frank, it's the only time when art or fashion enthusiasts come out and gather together, so it's all worth it in the end. 






This exhibition is the largest to date, featuring early paintings by Zaha, an architectural pioneer and visionary. I went into the exhibition speechless, and left even more speechless. To be able to see Zaha's work and creative process in real life was truly an amazing experience. I especially loved seeing Zaha's sketchbooks; these first initial creative process felt so raw and personal. Not to mention the VR experience-- it felt like I was living in Zaha's vision and I was absolutely blown away.




This exhibition is free of charge and is opened from Mar 17 - Apr 6, 2017 at Artistree, Taikooplace. The opening hours from now on is 10:00am-21:00pm.

ZAHA | STEPHANIE SO

 

I recently went to visit ZAHA HADID: There Should Be No End To Experimentation, a Zaha Hadid's exhibition in ArtisTree, Hong Kong. This exhibition is the largest to date, featuring early paintings by Zaha, an architectural pioneer and visionary. I went into the exhibition speechless, and left even more speechless. To be able to see Zaha's work and creative process in real life was truly an amazing experience. However, I will keep this short as I will write more about it in my next blog post.

Anyways, throwing back to last Summer. I visited Guangzhou and of course, I had to go see the Guangzhou Opera House, which is located at the heart of Guangzhou's cultural development. Designed by Zaha Hadid, the opera house is like pebbles in a stream smoothed by erosion, and sits in perfect harmony with its riverside location (influenced by river valleys). The design evolved from the concepts of a natural landscape and the fascinating interplay between architecture and nature; engaging with the principles of erosion, geology and topography. 

It was a sizzling hot summer over in Guangzhou so I had ice cold boba tea to sip on, whilst my sister and I randomly strolled around and took pictures. And no, I definitely do not miss the heat. I was sweating like there was no tomorrow. Can't actually believe this was half a year ago!
