‘Moon Rabbit’ Mid-Autumn Art Installation
19 September @ 6:00 am - 17 October @ 11:00 pm
Get ready for the full moon and some romantic time this Mid-Autumn Festival! This traditional Chinese festival is one of the most celebrated occasions in Hong Kong. Last year, Lee Tung Avenue spent a wonderful Mid-Autumn Festival with the public under an impressive giant moon art installation named “Museum of the Moon”. The fairy-tale romance will continue this year with a new exhibition, the “Moon Rabbit Lumiere”, jointly presented by Lee Tung Avenue and China Hong Kong City. Together with world-renowned Australian artist Amanda Parer, the two venues are going to showcase INTRUDE, 10 giant “Moon Rabbits” that have appeared in over 80 cities and 40 international arts festivals and event spaces. Catch a glimpse of these dreamlike giant white rabbits between 19 September and 17 October 2018.
Meanwhile, the iconic lanterns along Lee Tung Avenue make the perfect backdrop for the Mid-Autumn Festival. For the first time, a smart lighting technology equipped with iBeacon transmission will turn the shopping street into the “Avenue of Lights” with over 800 colourful lanterns. With a mobile application, visitors can control the lighting for a truly immersive and interactive experience. With Lee Tung Avenue’s mobile app, in addition, visitors can play the “Chinese Riddle Hide and Seek” through the app to win surprising rewards.
