Absolut is pleased to present a new collaboration with UK artist James Ostrer on two immersive site-specific Art Bars, both titled Absolut Spirituality Ashram.
Following Guru Jimmy’s appearance at the 2015 Venice Biennale he has been given carte blanche to fully conceptualise and create his own Art Bar. Inspired by his own spiritual beliefs, Art Central’s installation gives way to a type of spiritual transcendence, consisting of a technicolour dream-state complete with beanbag chairs, rugs, and other spiritual endeavours. He has also collaborated with some of Hong Kong’s top mixologists resulting in seven brightly coloured cocktails, each resembling a colour of the rainbow. Three of which will be available at Art Central and the other four will be on offer at ZUMA, the latter of which are sweetened by the fruits’ natural sugars, paying tribute to Ostrer’s battle with sugar addiction as represented in his body of work Wotsit All About. ZUMA also promises to enlighten visitors through the various meanings of colour with an extensive food-pairing menu featuring colourful maki, sushi, and interpretative fruit platters.
The event takes place at Zuma and Art Central.
