The Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMoA) presents new installations by Leung Chi Wo (b. 1968) and Chan Kwan-lok (b. 1992) through February 27.

The museum invited the two artists to exhibit alongside the exhibition “Titian and the Venetian Renaissance from the Uffizi,” which features works from the collection of the Uffizi Galleries in Italy. The three exhibitions simultaneously introduce artistic dialogues between the 16th-century Venetian Renaissance masters and 21st-century Hong Kong artists.

Leung Chi Wo’s “Tears of Tempo” gathers vintage glass lamps made in the Murano region of Venice from the late 19th century to the 1970s. The flickering light of the glass lamps is accompanied by the sound of waves crashing against the Murano docks, recorded by the artist.

Chan Kwan-lok’s “The Connection with Nature” is inspired by Venetian painting’s combination of everyday, secular objects with religious themes, and showcases a series of meticulous gongbi paintings that personify the elements of nature, such as the sun, moon, and stars.
