Lan Wei

Constructions ceased, concrete buildings stayed. Anothermountaiman highlighted the "exotica of opposites between grey lan wei and bright dreamy fantasy folk" in his exhibition. A back translation of the word "lan wei" is broken end. How sad to see construction project which the end is not complete, well executed and giving false hope to people who are in need of such space that could be home or dwelling area to many.

Pedderzine Uncatalogued

The culmination of 10 previous issues, the 11th edition of the Pedderzine - Exhibitionist - explores the creative world of On Pedder and its seasonal edits over the past five years. Since its inception, Pedderzine has delivered thought provoking imagery that epitomizes the irreverence central to the On Pedder identity. Pedderzine’s adherence to artistic collaboration remains constant, exploring sensory natures through prominent visual editorial partnerships and photography. Exhibitionist invites the viewer to a collection of the most captivating images and scenes from the publication’s past issues. To bring the Pedderzine archives to life, On Pedder presents a pop up artspace at On Lan Street, curated by Shin Wong, wrapped inside an enigmatic box. On Pedder has invited Hong Kong’s power-duo video artists – Yamanyamo, to explore the magazine’s deeply conceptual roots through an innovative new media artwork. In additional to the exhibition, the Queen’s Road Central window of Joyce sets the stage to showcase the treasure trove at On Pedder.

Exhibition runs from September 21st–October 3rd , 2012 Inaugural Vernissage Opening on September 20th 2012 7 On Lan St, Central, Hong Kong

pink is punk

To celebrate the expansion of Lane Crawford Canton Road and the launch of “lab by Lane Crawford”, Lane Crawford invited enigmatic Italian maestro and Creative Director Marcelo Burlon to come to Hong Kong and create a video piece featuring 20 of the city's taste-makers, influencers and movers and shakers. The opening party and mayhem begins this evening with "Pink is Party" hosted by Marcelo and his band of mischief-makers. Watch this space for more images of the party and his video, "Symphony of Hong Kong".

karmapa

I really cannot recall where else do I see an event or organization celebrating the 900th anniversary, thus Karmapa really caught my attention. The brand identity has done a beautiful job in delivering the calming sentiment using the symbolic prayer flag as part of the symbol. The integration of the Chinese name is harmonious and balanced.
