Art space to stage exhibitions

May 23, 2022

The new extension of the Oil Street Art Space in North Point (Oi!) will be open to the public from tomorrow with the launch of 10 art projects to provide Hong Kong with more community art and leisure space.


Two of the 10 art exhibitions and public engagement activities celebrate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.


One of them is "Joyful Trees (Arbores Laetae)", a kinetic art installation featuring Chinese junipers that are planted at a 10-degree bias in rotating turntables.


Dappled light, shade and patterns overlap when the trees rotate, taking visitors on a unique nature trail.


Another 25th anniversary presentation is "d'strict Remix", a three-dimensional digital exhibition showing anamorphic projection works of ocean waves and a massive blue whale moving freely in the sea.


The exhibition offers a spectacular visual experience for visitors on a large screen and connects art and technology in a subtle way.


Oi! is housed in the former clubhouse of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, which is a Grade II historic building.


To provide the district with more community art and leisure space, Oi! rolled out an expansion project in 2019, in which an adjacent open space of more than 3,000 sq m was integrated with the original premises.


The new extension features a two-storey building for staging exhibitions and holding activities. The launch of the 10 art projects aims to connect art and the community as well as build a sustainable future through collective creativity and collaboration.
