The Art of the Mat­ter

Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

15th Art afi­ciona­dos and prom­i­nent mem­bers of Hong Kong so­ci­ety were fer­ried to the op­u­lent din­ing hall at Jumbo King­dom, the iconic float­ing restau­rant in Aberdeen, for the an­nual gala din­ner of the Asia Art Archive, which also marked the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s 15th an­niver­sary. Guests first min­gled over cock­tails and had the op­por­tu­nity to pre­view a num­ber of com­pelling art­works des­tined to go un­der the ham­mer later in the evening. Then they were seated for a de­lec­ta­ble feast of tra­di­tional Can­tonese cui­sine. The live auc­tion proved to be a high­light. The lots in­cluded a Liu Wei sculp­ture con­structed from a col­lec­tion of ir­reg­u­larly shaped mir­rors, and Song Dong’s Fif­teen Sheets of White Pa­per, which was do­nated to the archive for the oc­ca­sion. A silent auc­tion also took place dur­ing the evening.
