Mark your calendars—the Japanese multi-sensory floral art exhibition “Naked Flowers” is coming to 1881 Heritage at the end of this month! Audiences in Hong Kong are invited on a sensory journey through eight interactive art rooms filled with an abundance of installations and digital floral art. Here’s everything you need to know about “Naked Flowers.”

The brainchild of Ryotaro Muramatsu, the “Naked Flowers” project is part of the Japanese artist’s digital art installation portfolio that began with “Naked Garden One Kyoto” in 2022. Since then, the artist has presented countless immersive and awe-inspiring art experiences to Japanese audiences.

“Naked Flowers” is composed of eight spectacular experiential zones. The journey begins by following “The Flower Path” with scattered petals guiding visitors to the “Naked Big Book,” where a giant book installation is decorated with digital floral art using projection mapping.

Walk through the “Big Flower Garden” and admire the beauty of unusually tall flowers and projections of petals around the exhibition space. At the “Digital Garden,” guests can interact with the artwork to make flowers grow, while the “Wild Flower Garden” transforms those in the room into butterflies among blooms. Wind down at the “Special Time” section watching while digital flowers bloom and glow in the dark.

Passing through the “Mosaic Flower Garden,” you can learn more about each flower that is featured in the exhibition, while the “Microscopy of Flowers” mirror room, reflecting flowers to infinity, offers a mesmerising experience. The digital art exhibition ends with two large scale pieces: “Ousai Garden” offers one last interactive experience where flowers grow as you approach the walls of the exhibition space, and “Dandelion,” Muramatsu’s signature statement art piece that he has been “planting” around the world as a symbol of peace among people.
