'SHADES IN ASCENT' BY STEVE LEUNG FOR SWAROVSKI
Swarovski returned as an Official Partner of Art Central in 2019, presenting an immersive installation by Steve Leung.
Steve Leung is a veteran in architect, interior and product design from Hong Kong. His work reflects this project’s unique characteristics with his contemporary touch, taking inspirations from the Asian art culture.
The installation discovers the tranquil dimension of an ancient oriental village, where endless floating lanterns infuse the space with suffused light, defining an ethereal ambience that celebrates the beauty of Chinese traditional arts. A meticulous selection of Swarovski crystal beads have been put together to create the lantern series, generating a mesmerising blaze. Flowing Shan Shui landscape images are projected on the floor recalling Chinese natural scenery, and giving a final poetic touch to this enchanting journey.
