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.

Tomor and Matteo

by Kelsey Zalimeni

An encounter with 'Tomor and Matteo' epitomizes the term phenomenological experience. The digital sculpture installation requires the viewer to be active and aware of their own body in the space. Feuerman's choice to install the piece on the floor hearkens to a similar mechanism made famous by minimalist sculptor Carl Andre, forcing the audience to orient themselves about the piece as it occupies the ground they walk on.

This piece was part of Carole's 2010 El Paso Museum retrospective exhibition, aptly titled 'Earth Water Air Fire.'  The installation was certainly a highlight of the show, inhabiting its own viewing room complete with a 40-foot high digital projector suspended from the ceiling. The following video features a tour of the El Paso exhibition:


The depicted scene comes from a common, everyday experience, yet there is something ritualistic about the interaction.  Perhaps the very nature of sharing (the pool, the beach ball, a glance) causes the piece to shine as sacred.  This video below offers a glimpse of the installation in depth.

Next Summer

by Kelsey Zalimeni

Summertime arrives with promises of rest and relaxation. Carole Feuerman's 'Next Summer' brings the season's joys to life in the form of one very content poolgoer.  Decked out in a zesty printed suit, the figure revels in the luxury of her chrome inner tube.

The illusion of flotation is cleverly achieved by installing the dense sculpture at the water level height. The pool display not only makes contextual sense, but creates a dynamic visual interplay between the water and chrome tube.

The tube's reflective surface also invites the viewer into the piece, allowing one to literally see themselves in paradise.  The audience can thus become apart of 'Next Summer,' joining into the poolside dreamworld of the figure before them.
