K11 Group and K11 Art Foundation have brought the first in Asia debut of Phyllida Barlow’s “untitled: folly; baubles” to K11 Musea. The larger-than-life masterpiece, which was originally commissioned by the British Council and represented the United Kingdom at the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017, is set to enthral visitors with its unique blend of whimsy and grandeur.
Running from now until 28 March, Barlow’s around 30 brightly coloured giant baubles will be a sight for visitors to behold at the K11 Musea Atrium. About ten of the art pieces will be exhibited at the K11 Musea promenade from 24 February to the end of November, offering an eye-catching spectacle for locals and tourists alike.
While ordinary materials such as cardboard, fabric, plywood, and cement may not be impressive on their own, when they are transformed to create “untitled: folly; baubles”, they exude a boundless energy that draws audiences in and encourages them to explore their own understanding of sculpture. Through her work, Barlow draws attention to the obstacles and challenges that shape our daily lives and invites viewers to engage with them in new and exciting ways.
To accompany the exhibition, K11 Art Foundation will present docent-led tours which invite our audience to take a deep dive into the masterpiece. Please stay tuned for registration details.
