This Summer, from 5 August to 29 August, Gallery by the Harbour welcomes Quokka, Bobo the gummy bear, and Marsh the marshmallow, adorable characters from the popular Korean creative brand Dinotaeng by illustrator Kim Tae-eun, with over 260K followers on Instagram.
Hailed as “the world’s happiest animal”, Quokka charms everyone with his signature optimism. “Quokka in Town!” is Dinotaeng’s first exhibition overseas, featuring the characters’ adventures around Hong Kong.
The exhibition is set in a departing plane that invites the audience to go on the journey with the characters, sharing their thrill to explore one of the most exciting cities in the world. With their favourite marshmallow skewers in hand, these little creatures march around the city, and get awed by skyscrapers, delighted by tram rides and mesmerised by the interwoven streets, while their smiles grace the city with warmth.
“Always joyful and sometimes clumsy, Quokka resolves obstacles with humour and originality, treating every occasion as gleeful experiments of life’s possibilities. I believe the characters can inject some humour into the audience’s life, reminding them of the little treasures in their surroundings. To me, this is the greatest joy!” said Kim Tae-eun.
Come and rediscover Hong Kong with the optimistic Quokka, Bobo, and Marsh!
Over 100 thematic merchandise are available on-site in limited quantity. Don’t miss out!
