Catch This Hong Kong Art Exhibit

Don't fall for the tourist traps. Get in touch with your inner child and go back to nature with a foreign outdoor art exhibit!

When you take a trip out of the country, the tendency is to act like a typical tourist and visit the traps designed to attract newcomers with money to spend. The novelty wears off after a few hours and boredom kicks in when you should be exploring a brand new culture. Instead of the usual amusement park or museum, try a different kind of experience that will take your breath away: Visit an interactive art exhibit!

Imagine walking through a garden with old records spinning in a neon wonderland of lights, sounds, fireworks, and live music. See children marvel at mechanical sculptures and flaming flowers, and be amazed by magical creatures creeping at the corner of your eye. The stuff of dreams (or nightmares)? Not at all. It's the experience of witnessing experimental post-modern art mingling with nature in the event aptly titled "Power Plant."

"Power Plant" is Asia's first outdoor art installation presented at the Kowloon Walled City Park in Hong Kong as part of the annual Hong Kong Arts Festival. United Kingdom artists Mark Anderson, Anne Bean, Jony Easterby, Ulf Pedersen, and Kirsten Reynolds have earned acclaim for their work at the Oxford Botanical Gardens, Liverpool, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. These talented men and women have taken a historically significant venue and transformed it into a celebration of nature and technology. The artists themselves improvise each night and interact with the audience, making each visit unique.

Let out your inner child and immerse yourself in a sensory experience at "Power Plant." Admission fee is HK$20. Check out the Hong Kong Arts Festival site and YouTube for more details.
