First-of-its-kind art exhibition to launch in Hong Kong
INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED SCULPTOR RICHARD X ZAWITZ SET TO ENTHRALL WITH A CREATIVE JOURNEY THROUGH HUMAN CIVILIZATION
18 MONUMENTAL SCULPTURES BRING THE ROTUNDA, EXCHANGE SQUARE TO LIFE IN A THEATRICAL FEAST FOR THE EYES, MIND AND SOUL
HONG KONG (10 August 2016) – World acclaimed sculptor Richard X Zawitz will be launching his most ambitious, dynamic and inspirational solo exhibition to date. Certain to be a highlight of Hong Kong’s cultural calendar, the unprecedented sculptural installation will present an exceptionally innovative combination of art and science, to explore human civilization through the lens of our primate ancestors. Civilization and the Monkey: Why we are here! Why are we here? at The Rotunda, Exchange Square, is sponsored by Hongkong Land, and will run from 25th October to 10th November 2016.
Richard X Zawitz has selected one of the most fascinating themes shared by all of humanity – evolution. Seeking to enliven the story of human development through informed imagination, the artist takes the monkey as his subject matter for the new sculptural event, inspired by this year’s Chinese Zodiac. The exuberant artworks will be crafted in bronze, and stainless steel, in Zawitz’s signature and celebrated invention of “Curvism”. Each of the 18 limited edition, large-scale sculptures references significant historical, cultural and scientific archetypes from history, contributing towards our collective understanding of the world today.
