The immense public and media response to Carole A. Feuerman’s Solo Exhibition at Harbour City, Hong Kong has resulted in the show being extended until July 7th. Harbour City Art's mission to be a beacon of prestigious public art has been hugely advanced by Feuerman’s flourishing exhibition.
The thriving fine art scene in Hong Kong has been awakened to the unique, creative niche of Feuerman’s luminous hyper-realism. In her first solo exhibition in Asia’s premier city, Feuerman has successfully left her distinctive artistic signature and she will continue to do so throughout the international art world with upcoming shows in Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan.

Even the Hong Kong Skyline and Victoria Harbor couldn’t distract the crowd’s attention from Feuerman’s Harbour City Swimmers exhibition. The show is a surreal spectacle of hyper-real sculptures and models dressed as Feuerman’s sculptures integrated together throughout the exhibit.
People’s heads were spinning as models would come to life and move, while others waited for Feuerman’s sculptures to do the same.
Feuerman’s reputation as a master illusionist was immediately apparent and the crowd was entranced by the specially commissioned swimming pool home for Kendall Island, Olympus, Next Summer, The Golden Mean, Monumental Brooke with Beach Ball, and Monumental Quan.
Neon lights and camera flashes illuminated the flawless swimmers and set social media ablaze as Feuerman enthusiasts posted pics of the show that spread like wildfire.
It’s the sculptor’s first solo show in Hong Kong and the response has been monumental. Viewers were wonderfully delirious and delighted by Feuerman’s swimmers.
It’s often said that people fall in love with Feuerman’s sculptures because of their exuberant celebration of life in its finest details and the people of Hong Kong certainly seem to be reveling in this celebration.
There is nothing casual about Feuerman’s hyper-realism and perhaps that is its most potent trait. Feuerman’s swimmers transcend ordinary reality because of their timeless nature. Her artistic technique for hyper-realism succeeds in capturing emotion in motion.
The swimmers beckon for viewers to see reality afresh; after discovering the details of a Feuerman, people’s eyes cannot help, but be more aware of the world around them. The quiet gift given to people at the exhibition from every sculpture is the will and desire to truly see the magic of life’s finer points.
Anyone lucky enough to see the show will walk away with a new found hyper perspective, which will beautify their life and allow them to see new grandeurs residing all around them. They’ll realize that they were looking, just not hard enough.
Just two days remain before the premier of Carole A. Feuerman’s first solo show in Hong Kong at Harbour City. There is a wonderful feeling of anticipation in the air as people ready themselves to experience Feuerman’s hyper-realism.
The show, organized by Art in the City at Harbour City, opens on June 18th and runs through July 5th. The sculptures will be on view daily from 10am till 10pm.
This exhibition is an invitation for viewers to connect with the sculptures and allow the line between reality and art to be blurred.
Feuerman’s pieces freeze time and capture the finer points of reality and accentuate details that people are often too busy to admire or acknowledge.
The custom built pool and its swimmers defy everyday distractions and invite people to pause and seek reality in art, and through art be returned into an even more monumental reality.
Victoria Harbour is breathtaking and Harbour City’s commitment to public art exhibitions and celebrating culture is admirable. It’s an incredible location and the perfect arena for the public to interact with Feuerman’s sculptures.
Please Join us for this Hyper-real Harbour Event!

Harbour City receives 222,000 visitors daily. It is a must visit destination for locals and tourists alike. All of Harbour’s events are free admission and non-commercial. They are striving to inject art into the community and act as a bridge between artists and the public.
Harbour City sought out Feuerman’s work because her Swimmers live forever in perpetual summer. Their presence will be a catalyst for people to relish the season and revel in the fact that summer is back! Choosing to exhibit Feuerman’s sculptures in heavily trafficked areas will encourage people to interact with the pieces and feel the warmth and excitement that they radiate.
Art in the City’s mission is to raise public awareness and promote art through media. They hope to educate the younger generation as well as the entire community about artistic expression through the experience of public exhibitions.
Harbour City has held five mega public art and cultural exhibitions since 2007. Among them was Ms. Yayoi Kusama’s ebullient solo show: “Dots Obsession, Soul of Pumpkin” as well as Florentijn Hofman’s wildly successful “Rubber Duck”, which drew thousands of admirers along the Harbour front.
Harbour City offers luxury shopping and dining experiences unlike any other in the world. It stretches for 2 million square feet running parallel with the glorious Victoria Harbour. Its “Star” Ferry pier was named one of the “50 Places of a Lifetime” by the National Geographic Traveller.
Harbour City has become a beacon of the arts. Art in the City has organized musical performances every weekend since 2001. They’ve also dedicated themselves to collecting art pieces from all over the world and exhibiting them throughout the complex.
As a premier destination for people seeking culture and creativity, Harbour City is endeavoring to be associated with the world’s most innovative and talented artists.
Harbour City called on Feuerman to usher in heightened artistic interaction on a personal level for everyday viewers. Her sculptures are magnets for the eye and transformative for any public atmosphere.
After the Hong Kong show, the sculptures will be exhibited in the Daejeon Museum of Art in South Korea, then travel to a museum in Seoul and on to Taiwan.
Recently back from Italy where her two new sculptures are being exhibited in the 2015 Venice Biennale by GAAF, Personal Structures, Feuerman is passionately enthusiastic about exhibiting in Hong Kong.
Her sculptures will enhance the environment and leave an enduring legacy of joy and beauty in this magnificent public space.
