Just in time for the Mid-Autumn Festival, Kwai Chai Hong introduced its latest art installation ‘Beyond the Moonlit Door’ in celebration of one of the most important moments in Chinese culture.

The installation is open to members of the public from 26 August until 2 October 2022. During that period, the art installation serves as a reminder to everyone to learn from the past, embrace the present and seize opportunities in the future.

 While technology advancements are great, the flip side is that life tends to move so fast, that memories are something we can only grasp. Kwai Chai Hong freezes time for us to appreciate the past and welcome the future. With that, I wanted my artwork to interact with the surroundings while engaging visitors for a captivating experience celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival.

Right at the main entrance, visitors will be greeted by an astounding structure made in collaboration with award-winning architectural designer and artist, Pamela Tan of Poh Sin Studio.

The installation named ‘Endless Frames’ features hundreds of intricate laser-cut acrylic sheets hung at various lengths, creating an illusion of time travel as visitors walk through the cavern-like portal which references traditional Chinese wooden doors and windows.

With Kwai Chai Hong lending itself as the historical background, it serves as a reminder to preserve the Chinese cultural heritage amidst a rapidly changing world.

The passageway reflects the change in time while projecting bountiful hope and optimism for a brighter future at the other end of the bridge.

The popular laneway is decorated with oriental doors and windows with a twist. These ‘moonlit’ doors symbolise the many opportunities and hope life has to offer and those who take action will reap its benefits.

The colours of the frames add a twist to the traditional look, paying homage to paper lanterns available during the Mid-Autumn Festival.

Visitors can also take ethereal photos of themselves at a beautiful corner known as the ‘Giant Full Moon beyond the Moon Door.’
