Artwork Message:
Maybe today we are not living in the same place, maybe the situation is difficult for us to meet, but we share the same beautiful moon. Distance cannot separate us. Love unites us again. Let’s send a hug to those you care in the Mid-Autumn Festival.

You are also cordially invited to create with us your own artwork for Hugs without Distance in an exploration of your feelings on the themes of “Mid-Autumn Festival” and “Hugs”.  

Ken Lo Hiu-tang, a local artist, has created an illuminated art installation called Hugs without Distance based on the concept of “more hugs”. His work symbolises “coming together” – in today’s world, we can all be different but still love each other. Let us share the graceful moonlight and spread its warmth to every corner of the community in this Mid-Autumn Festival.

For public health and safety, visitors are requested to observe the following arrangements and precautionary measures:

  • Please bring your own mask and keep it on throughout your visit (including the photo-taking period).
  • Please keep proper social distance. Group gatherings of more than four people are prohibited. Please also keep a distance of at least 1.5 metres as far as feasible between yourself and any other person.
  • Naked-flame lanterns, alcoholic drinks, aerosol spray, metallic balloons and glass bottles are prohibited.

To avoid overcrowding on the Mid-Autumn Day, visitors are encouraged to come on other dates during the display period.
