It’s strawberry fever this month at K11 MUSEA, Hong Kong’s destination for all things: art, culture, nature, and gastronomy. With love in the air and the promise of springtime just around the corner, HOUSE OF MUSEA draws upon the grandiose splendour of garden parties long associated with English royalty and the upper echelon to bring us a season of festivities that is sure to tug at your heartstrings.

The not-to-be-missed highlight is the monumental art installation, Strawberry Stalker, by Brooklyn-based artist Stickymonger. Look up from Opera Theatre on the ground floor to see her dreamlike strawberries theatrically suspended in the open space; drop by Gold Ball on the 2/F for an up-close photo with one of the doe-eyed sculptures. Renowned for her otherworldly, fantastical murals, illustrations and digital art, this is Stickymonger’s first time expanding her much-loved Strawberry concept from the two-dimensional to the three-dimensional space. For her, the strawberry is a metaphoric representation of how the immensity of our digitally-driven lives can lead us to be blind-sighted to our individual uniqueness, while still convinced of our own originality. Through Strawberry Stalker, the artist seeks to encourage us to question this paradoxical thinking.

Encounter the beauty and lusciousness of nature on the 6/F where the Garden Pop-up offers a contemporary take on the picturesque gardens of English estates. Stroll through the lavish flora of fanciful hedges and topiaries, beds of roses, hydrangeas, delphiniums, lavenders, and peonies, and be filled with feelings of romance, hope, and joy.

What other way to win one’s heart than through the stomach? No season of love is complete without gastronomy. Strawberry delicacies abound HOUSE OF MUSEA this month. From a delectable Pink Valentine’s Day afternoon tea set for two at Artisan Lounge, or a strawberry danish choux from Gontran Cherrier, and Fortnum & Mason’s Knickerbocker Glory, the vast choices of freshly baked pastries and cakes, artisan coffees, and indulgent tea sets will be sure to sweep your sweetheart off their feet.
