Harbour City "Bubble Up" Public Art Project -- "Memorial Rebirth" Art Performance

Changing the exhibition space into the extraordinary world, Ohmaki presents dynamic installations and art works that wake visitor's physical senses. International fashion brands Louis Vuitton and Hermès have also invited him for commission works. In 2008, he designed and created a "Bubble Machine" which can produce 10,000 bubbles per minute and developed non-toxic soap bubble for one of his signature artworks "Memorial Rebirth". The performance has toured over 20 cities in Japan, Taiwan and Australia. It was also the opening performance for the first Setouchi Art Festival in 2010.

This time, Ohmaki will transport the bubble machines and the soap bubble from Japan to Hong Kong to stage the 20 bubble performance shows at Ocean Terminal Forecourt of Harbour City. He has tailor-designed a 3-meter tall, 6-level Bubble Pyramid at the centre of the forecourt. 45 Bubble Machines will be installed at different levels and directions to produce 10 million bubbles under the backdrop of Victoria Harbour and recall the happy childhood memories of everyone.

Delivering 360 degree customer experiences

Spread over 2 million square feet of prime real estate, Harbour City is the largest and most diverse shopping mall in Hong Kong. By continuous innovation in the brand mix, thematic activities, facilities and designs of the mall, Harbour City has established itself as Hong Kong's marquee mall and a major tourist attraction.

Harbour City has been extremely supportive of the diversification of local and world class artists. Harbour City is the first Hong Kong mall to operate its very own art gallery, "Gallery by the Harbour", where visitors can enjoy the beautiful view of Victoria Harbour while appreciating art pieces of local and international artists. In 2007 and 2010, Harbour City invited Yayoi Kusama, famous Japanese avant-garde artist and KAWS, well-known American artist and designer to hold their first art exhibition in Hong Kong. Following these popular exhibitions, world-renowned Dutch conceptual artist Florentijn Hofman exhibited his classic masterpiece -- a gigantic inflatable "Rubber Duck" -- in Greater China for the very first time. For the "Bubble Up" public art project this time, Harbour City brings the first-ever installation art performance to the public.
