Public Exhibition dates: 15 – 17 March 2015
Opening times: Monday to Saturday: 10am – 8pm, Sunday: 10am – 6pm
Location: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Hong Kong Shop 4, G/F, Wu Chung House, 213 Queen’s Road East Wanchai, Hong Kong, +852 2870 1692

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is delighted to announce that a new installation by Hong Kong-based artist Morgan Wong will be presented within the marque’s Hong Kong showroom. The work will be unveiled on 10 March 2015 and will be on display for one week to coincide with Asia’s leading art fair, Art Basel in Hong Kong (15 – 17 March 2015). Wong will investigate the value of urban development in relation to the irrepressibility of time by transforming Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ Spirit of Ecstasy, from a symbol of beauty to an emblem for capturing timelessness. This new commission will be presented in partnership with Pearl Lam Galleries.

Morgan Wong’s ambitious new commission Untitled – Expressway will be an installation with a component on the floor of the showroom together with multi-channel video work including footage taken while cruising on a route connecting the present heart of Hong Kong and a satellite ‘new town’ embedded in the city’s prehistoric history. The Spirit of Ecstasy, which adorns every Rolls-Royce motor car, will seemingly bear witness to the changes of Hong Kong in an attempt to remind the audience that the process of transformation, and the speed at which it occurs, deviates from humanity. Untitled – Expressway will be comprised of abstract video, archive materials and a narration by a fictional character. It will be exhibited by monitor video projections, and also on the video screen in the rear compartment of a Rolls-Royce car. Inside the vehicle the audience will experience a virtual voyage in an intimate and timeless manner.
