URBAN SAFARI is a series of creatures featuring animals redesigned and ephemerally projected on facades of buildings, walls or nature through an embedded video-projection system. The audience is invited to follow the Street Artist, Julien Nonnon, from one location to another and appreciate the artworks five minutes at a time.
It is a strange and surprising vision of the Hong Kong wildlife that is offered to us by the French artist. In this new URBAN SAFARI, the artist will play with the Chinese Zodiac effigies. A clever mix of street-art and video-mapping inviting us to rethink the way in which we wander in the city at night! Watch out!
You might come face-to-face with a rooster wearing a bomber jacket, lurking from around the corner!
