Feast your eyes

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

Por­tuguese artist Joana Vas­con­ce­los has trans­formed the MGM Ma­cau with an ex­hi­bi­tion of vi­brant and mon­u­men­tal sculp­tures, cre­ated ex­clu­sively for the re­sort. Vas­con­ce­los, who has ex­hib­ited at nu­mer­ous edi­tions of the Venice Bi­en­nale, was in­spired by Ma­cau’s her­itage as a hub for mar­itime trade. Cen­tral to the ex­hib­tion is Valkyrie Oc­to­pus— a strange or­ganic form which hangs from the sky­light dome of the MGM Ma­cau’s cen­tral atrium. The form pre­sides over the space like a guardian, with its aus­pi­cious eight ten­ta­cles reach­ing across to other works and em­brac­ing the aquar­ium at the cen­tre of the ho­tel’s Grand Praça.
