In celebration of the launch of Ming Fay’s monograph Journey into Nature, we are happy to present a panel discussion on Fay’s artistic journey.

Ming Fay, internationally renowned Chinese diaspora sculptor, installation artist, and professor. He was born in Shanghai, raised up in Hong Kong and has since settled in New York to develop his artistic career. Fay’s work, which draws on his extensive knowledge of both Eastern and Western horticulture and mythologies, primarily comments upon the symbiotic relationship between humans and nature, such as his iconic large fruit sculptures and hanging Money Tree installations. Currently his work is on display at Philadelphia Museum of Art, USA until June 2023.

Alisan Fine Arts is delighted to announce Journey into Nature, the 4th solo exhibition for the Chinese-American sculptor and installation artist, Ming Fay, at our Central space. On display will be some of Ming Fay’s works that will be introduced to the Hong Kong audience for the first time. These include the wishbone series, the Tai Chi figure series, and early sketches that inspired his famous fruit sculptures. Other iconic works, such as the money tree branch and larger than life fruits, nuts and surrealist vegetables will also be displayed. The exhibition can be seen as an expansion of Ming Fay’s large-scale installation themed Garden of Life at Art Basel Hong Kong 2022, where viewers were invited into an unconventional Edenic utopia.

During this exhibition, the white cube gallery space will be transformed into a surreal garden, once again, providing an immersive experience that is even more joyful for the audience, with a larger exhibition space and the exclusive spotlight on one artist this time. The diversity of work that will be displayed traces Fay’s career from the 1980s to now and can be viewed as a mini retrospective.

In addition to the display of artworks, a 400-page-monograph of Fay’s life and work will be launched in conjunction with the exhibition.
