Walking along Queen’s Road Central last month, I came face to face with a life-size bronze sculpture of a naked man – something of a surprise in the normally very conservative Hong Kong. Turns out he was one of thirty-one statues of an outside exhibition called ‘Event Horizon’ by the British sculptor Antony Gormley. Four of the statues are at street level while the rest, which are fibre glass, are on the top of high-rise buildings looking as if they might be about to jump. Here are two of them, one on top of Prince’s Building and the other in Hong Kong Park.
The exhibition has also been staged in Rotterdam, New York, Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro.
