Bright Idea

A “lightbulb moment” display from “The Godfather of Brit Art,” Sir Michael Craig-Martin

Coinciding with the fifth edition of Art Basel Hong Kong, Sir Michael Craig-Martin’s Bright Idea installation is part of the fourth annual “Love Art at The Peninsula” programme, in collaboration with Britain’s Royal Academy of Arts.

 

On display from 20 March to 31 May, passersby can experience the four-metre-tall, powder-coated steel sculpture just outside The Peninsula Hong Kong first-hand. “The courtyard is an exciting and dramatic space, and therefore difficult to command with a sculpture,” said Craig-Martin. “For this reason I decided on the image of the lightbulb, that it should be yellow, and that it would need to be as big as possible. This lightbulb is one of the largest sculptures I’ve done.”
