Visit Kwai Chai Hong’s latest Mid-Autumn Festival inspired installation before it ends this month!
The Mid-Autumn Festival, one of the most significant occasions in Chinese culture, is being celebrated at Kwai Chai Hong in Lorong Panggung in Kuala Lumpur. Visit the Instagrammable location before it ends next week! The art exhibition runs until Sunday, October 2, 2022.
Visitors are invited to the Instagrammable laneway where they will be welcomed by oriental doors and windows presented in a unique style. Behind the beautiful installation, it is actually a reminder for each visitor to take advantage of the future, embrace the present, and learn from the past. According to the organiser, the art installation is a combination of older events and present viewpoints, which is consistent with Kwai Chai Hong.
At the main entrance, visitors can see a stunning building created in collaboration with award-winning architect and artist Pamela Tan of Poh Sin Studio. The “Endless Frames” installation features hundreds of intricate laser-cut acrylic sheets that are hung at various lengths, giving visitors the impression that they are travelling through time as they pass through this cavernous portal that is modelled after traditional Chinese wooden doors and windows.
In a world that is changing quickly, Kwai Chai Hong lends itself as the historical backdrop, serving as a reminder to preserve the Chinese cultural legacy. While reflecting the passage of time, this tunnel also casts a bright future at the other end of the bridge with plenty of hope and optimism.
In keeping with the concept, colourful “Moonlit Doors” take over the laneway and chart a route to the full moon that is on exhibit. These doors stand for the various possibilities and rays of hope that exist in life, and that those who act will profit from them.
