‘The King and I’

THE scenic and theatrical exhibition presented by nine contemporary artists is a journey across space and time. Originating from the Royal Palace in Milan, it is about a far away palace and its imaginary stories, transposed like a labyrinth or a dream to Shanghai.

The nine artists used Alcantara in the exhibition. The material produced by Italian material manufacturer Alcantara is so resistant that it can take any shape. The exhibition transports visitors to another dimension as fairy tales and old stories mix in an imaginary space.

Artwork “Xanadu” is composed of a number of fixed panels decorated with images of exotic journeys to faraway lands, while another work “Catoptric Cistula” contains a series of mirrors which deform and multiply the artefacts created by Italian artist Francesco Simeti. The “Frog King” by Vienna-born artist Arthur Arbesser is a fountain lined with cloud-patterned Alcantara where visitors can gaze at their reflection as they briefly step into the shoes of the princess or the prince.
