活在城市，我们习惯有光，却因过于熟悉而无视了光的万千姿态。由K11 Art Foundation主办的 “Glow Like That”，是首场在坐落于香港尖沙咀海滨的环球艺术设计新地标 Victoria Dockside 举行的当代艺术展览，聚集了16位来自中国、美国、日本等地的艺术家及艺术组合，他们的绘画、录像、雕塑和装置作品融合自然与人造光源，或隐喻各种 “亮光” 在当代社会中的功用与象征意义，向大家重现存在于日常生活中的种种光芒。
光是自有永有的自然现象，也是人类科技发明的产物。光本无深意，是一个等待被赋予意义的空泛能指；它没有清晰的轮廓，总带着模糊的边缘。然而，正因其暧昧无形，光亦能变化万千。“Glow Like That” 的展出作品媒介多样，包括玻璃、镜、塑料等随处可见的材质，光一旦与它们碰触，或折射出虹彩，或映照周遭环境，产生许多有趣的视觉现象。不同姿态与强度的光，甚至开辟了一种内在空间，把现世物象与人的思绪连系起来。这个 “光芒耀眼” 的展览，还与Victoria Dockside四周的景观相互辉映——从展场向外眺望，满目灯火璀璨，波光潋滟的海港闪照眼前，启发观众以新的角度，感受城市的光彩繁华。
As city dwellers, we are so used to the presence of light that we have become blind to the myriad forms that light can assume. Presented by K11 Art Foundation, Glow Like That is the first contemporary art exhibition held in Victoria Dockside, a global art and design district on the iconic Tsim Sha Tsui harbourfront in Hong Kong. The exhibition features 16 artists and artist groups from countries including China, the US, and Japan, showcasing a spectacular array of works of painting, video, sculpture, and installation. While some of the works are intended to interact with natural and artificial light sources, others attempt to reveal the functions and symbolic significance of the variety of ‘glow’ that one can observe in contemporary society. The exhibition seeks to arouse interest in light, reigniting the sparkles dimmed by the grinding daily life.
Not only is light a natural phenomenon, but it is also a product of scientific advancement. It is an abstract signifier awaiting a narrative; it is undefined, blurred at the edges. However, being amorphous has also given it plasticity and endless possibilities. In this exhibition, commonplace materials such as glass, mirrors, and plastic are put together to reveal its ever-changing, multifarious characters. When light encounters these materials, its refraction creates iridescence, and its reflection produces many interesting visual phenomena. It also opens up an internal space that reifies thoughts in different intensities and shapes. Brimming with a diversity of imagery associated with light, the exhibition echoes the view that the exhibition space overlooks, which further engages viewers’ interest. From the vantage point of Glow Like That in Victoria Dockside, viewers can feast on the opulence of the gleam and glimmer of the city; the glistering waves of the harbour and the exhibition shine a light on each other, bolstering one another’s splendour.

Mountain River Jump! is an artist duo founded by identical twin sisters Huang Shan and Huang He, who were born in 1985. The two collaborate as a group while have been working independently on their own solo projects for years. They are fearless in discussing subjects that can only be talked about behind closed doors, such as samsara, astrology, card divination, ghost stories, and mythology. They have broad interests in the ancient and the modern, and attempt to apply ‘cultural psychoanalysis’, at both the linguistic and visual levels, to their study of the reality of the present. They also examine mainstream and official discourses through their research of folklore, analyzing the social-power relationship. Their artistic practices cover a range of formats, including static visual works, moving images, sound, lectures, workshops, and divination behaviors while emphasizing the importance of communications between people.
