Chi Wing Lo left Hong Kong more than forty years ago, and now he returns home to share with us his perception of aesthetics, life and civilisation as reflected in this collection of fascinating sculptures. These enchanting works are inspired by his spiritual models whom he calls "angels", who have guided and accompanied him since his childhood in a small fishing village in east Hong Kong.
These angels of Chi Wing Lo are messengers to inspire questions, cast doubts, stretch limits, define unknowns, and decipher enigmas that may never be decipherable. These angels are here to ignite the love of art and to kindle the graciousness of the soul.
Follow us on a guided tour of this inaugural exhibition by Kwai Fung Salone, where the sculptures by Chi Wing Lo will be showcased.
Chi Wing Lo's works encompass the fields of architecture, sculpture, interior, furniture, and object design. His prolific output has long been recognised, both in and beyond the eminent circle of contemporary Italian design, for its evocativeness in thought, gracefulness in form, and meticulousness in every detail. His aspiration for timelessness has brought his designs to international attention and many of his earlier works continue to be much sought after today.
Kwai Fung Salone is a new platform for art and cultural events established by Kwai Fung Hin Art Gallery in 2022. Located in Tai Kwun, Kwai Fung Salone will be housed in a 1,500 square-foot space designed by a team of top talents, consisting of internationally renowned architect designer Chi Wing Lo, Steve Leung Design Group and Tino Kwan Lighting Consultants.
Historically a "salon" (in Italian "salone") was a hosted gathering of intellectual, artistic and literary circles, where attendees would amuse, inspire and learn from each other through the exchange of ideas and information.
Paying homage to this European tradition and the "age of conversation" which sparked many literary and philosophical movements, Kwai Fung Salone is an elegant chamber that houses sophisticated art and cultural exhibitions, and hosts ancillary intellectual exchanges, educational events and activities. These exhibitions and events promote a wide range of art and culture, championing both local talents and international masters across different artistic, literary and cultural disciplines.
Kwai Fung Salone also organises collaborations, joint ventures and partnerships with local and overseas artists, galleries, literati, academics, public and private institutions, art foundations and corporations to enrich its cultural and social impact.
