The City of Venice can breathe a sigh of relief. The whirlwind opening ceremonies of the 2015 Venice Biennale have past. Venice has survived the tidal wave of art freaks, geeks, sleeks, and elites.
However, while the Biennale’s most trafficked period is over, its exhibitions will run through November and there is plenty of art yet to explore for visitors.
Carole Feuerman’s monumental works DurgaMa and Leda and the Swan are on view in front of Palazzo Mora and were sponsored by the Global Arts Foundation. The response to her work this summer was a blend of romanticized ecstasy and serious-minded zeal.
People’s overwhelming infatuation with Leda and the Swan resulted in a spontaneous romance between the crowd and the sculpture.
In a highly politicized and darker themed Biennale, Feuerman’s sculptures inspired genuine and fruitful emotions. Both pieces projected serenity and strove to perpetuate an elevated, nourishing atmosphere.
The vanished fanfare of gala parties and PR forced feedings allows time to reflect and digest.
This year’s curator, Okwui Enwezor, proclaimed that it was “the right of every artist to strike such a stance of radical refusal,” to “the noise, pollution, dust, and decay” of the world. Feuerman’s work and the response it received, speaks to her successful emphasis on humanity’s finer points.
“Through my sculptures, I explore classicism and beauty, which are subjects that have been taboo in contemporary art. There is a conditioned, yet inaccurate, belief that "good" radical art has to reject something that is attractive and pleasing to the eye.”
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.

Feuerman and the likes of Taylor Swift and the Kardashians have Swan Fever. The hyper-realistic sculptor joins A-listers in celebrating a giant 7 foot long inflatable white swan.
Sales of the swan have skyrocketed and over 40,000 were sold this year alone. It has become the obligatory summer photo prop for Swift, Calvin Harris and a myriad of other limelighters.
Long before the inflatable Swan started making the rounds on the celebrity Instagram circuit - Feuerman took ‘Swanning’ to a whole new level and handcrafted and sculpted the Swan for her piece: Leda and the Swan in 2014.
The sculpture was featured in this year’s premier art event: The Venice Biennale. Feuerman’s show Personal Structures at Palazzo Mora was a huge success and crowds gathered to gape at the Swan. The sign that read “Do Not Touch” on the sculpture was interpreted as “Please poke, kiss, and sit on me” because people couldn’t get enough of the huge white bird.
Feuerman loves that Swanning has crossed the Atlantic!
