INFORMATION: OUR STATEMENT OF CARE
Celebrate the Lunar New Year through Augmented Reality with Gordon Cheung’s site-specific public art installation at A. Wong titled “Year of the Ox”.
Launching from 11th February 2021, Andrew Wong, Chef Patron of recently crowned, 2 Michelin starred restaurant A.Wong in Pimlico and London-based, multi-media artist, Gordon Cheung have joined forces to create a cutting edge, interactive, art installation to celebrate Lunar New Year 2021.
When it became apparent the lockdown would extend into the month of February, the two met in a creative collaboration to exchange their knowledge, thoughts and nostalgia about the Lunar New Year. Reviewing the symbolism of their shared history and culture, inspired the creation of “The Year of the Ox by Gordon Cheung”.
In partnership with Rémy Martin, the public artwork will take the form of a vinyl mural wrapped around the restaurant’s newly installed terrace, to be enjoyed by everyone. In addition, it can be enjoyed further through a “Year of the Ox” app on Android or Apple smartphone, accessed via a QR code located on the work. This will bring the art to life in digital animation: beautiful flowers will grow and the mural with the ox will glisten and transform.

Andrew and Gordon are British born Chinese, who grew up navigating between Eastern and Western cultures. They have found uniquely different ways to express their creativity and share an artistic connection. Both have achieved high acclaim in their respective industries by translating their present-day craft through ancient cultural symbolism.
Rémy Martin has long been an advocate of craftsmanship, passion and excellence, qualities it shares with both artist and chef, and throughout China is synonymous with its New Year hopes of success and good fortune. Launching this unique artwork with Andrew and Gordon on 11th February 2021 at this key occasion in the Lunar calendar, the partnership will springboard a series of exciting offerings and wider convivial activities that will continue throughout the Year of the Ox, heralding a prosperous, bright and harmonious future for all.
