Brazilian Artist Anne Galante to Knit Art Installations
In Support of Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation
Harbour City has joined hands with Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation on the annual fundraising event since 2002, and raised more than HK$35million over the past 17 years for those in need.
This year, Harbour City incorporates arts into charity, by presenting “All You Knit Is Love” interactive art installations from 29 Nov, 2019 to 1 Jan, 2020 with Brazilian Artist Anne Galante, who is here to make her overseas debut. Famous for her unique oversized creations, Anne knits a garden and playground by hands on-site, with the help of a group of local arts and fashion students.
Let’s come and indulge in an unimagined wave of warmth, while raising funds for HKBCF!
“All You Knit Is Love” Garden
Growing up in a warm country, Anne goes on her first-ever overseas “creation trip” to bring you love and warmth. At the garden at Atrium II, Gateway Arcade, Anne has knitted a 5-meter high tree and a soft, comfortable lawn, where you can lie serenely on the benches and appreciate the beauty of the art piece. In the giant, pink “yarn ball” aside, plenty of tiny, bright-coloured yarn balls dangle in front of mirrors on both sides, inspiring boundless imagination.
“All You Knit Is Love” Playground
Anne has also brought a playground of over 700 sq. ft. to Atrium, Ocean Terminal, by knitting a pool of “yarns” on a plush lawn. Kids can get on the train together with adorably dressed animals and elves to the playground and slide into a soft, comfortable sea of “yarn balls”, therefore enjoying a taste of a warm, vibrant winter.
