Art Macao Outdoor Installations
Six eye-catching outdoor art installations are displayed at different corners of the city as part of Art Macao, a mega international cultural and artistic event in Macau, providing visitors with distinctive art and cultural attractions. Learning from Macao is a mega-urban panorama. Using the signature language of architectural axonometric drawing, the mainland-based Drawing Architecture Studio has attempted to explore a new 21st-century urban design concept with Macau as its theme. It’s on display at the exterior wall of the Handover Gifts Museum of Macao. The artwork “Gathering” by Su Xinping from Mainland China, sets the huge hands at an upward angle. The work combines figurative expression with surreal dimensions to create a mountain-like shape, allowing viewers to look up from a relatively low horizontal line of sight and feel the infinite space that extends out. The artwork can be visited at the Art Plaza of the Macao Cultural Centre.
Chakra was created by Riccardo Cordero, from Italy. The sculptures, located in Tap Seac Square, are formed into a circle, allowing people to visit and appreciate the work from various perspectives. Global City, signed by Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich, uses steel and resin to interpret the concept of “a global village”, highlighting the advantages of human interconnectedness while showing the threat posed by human civilization to the earth, exploring the realistic significance of sharing the same house in the hustle and bustle in the development of humanity. You can visit this in front of the Taipa Houses-Museum. Made of mirror and fiberglass, the installation Miss You, by Thailand artist Gongkan conveys the idea that “love” is freedom without boundaries, and everyone can express “love” without restraint. Open to the public at Anim’Arte Nam Van. In Barra square, you’ll be able to see Sun Boat, a work that explores migration by Moataz Nasr (from Egypt), features a solar disc of 360 paddles to illustrate the endless, interconnected movement of human beings on earth seeking a better life.
When: September 1–30, 2021
