Hong Kong’s Slideluckers pulled out all the stops for the second edition of Slideluck HK in the city. Inspired by the fabulous food brought by other guests (and possibly our sweet, savoury and best presentation prizes!) we dined on devilled eggs, pesto pastries, delicate apple strudel, pumpkin gooey cake, curries, paella, and lovingly made peanut butter and honey banana toasties. Nice Pops were also there with their alcoholic and non-alcoholic selection of gourmet ice pops. Most foodies also knew to eat around the plastic fruit installation inserted into the potluck as an exhibition piece about our overuse of plastic consumption and waste. Good thing this year we invested in cups and cutlery made from PLA, which is a plastic-like material that is made from plants and is biodegradable! The Slideluck team also made an effort to recycle all the glass from this year’s show in a bid to make our events more eco-friendly and less wasteful.
This year there were some great raffle prizes on offer including bottles of Grey Goose and Veuve Clicquot, red and white wines from Evercohol, Slideluck t-shirts from Custom HK, an Instax Mini7S camera donated by Silverstrand Executive Search, and dinner vouchers to Rula Bula, Rummin Tings and Kinsale. Guests then settled in to find seats on the faux grass carpets and reclining chairs with ice cold Brooklyn Brewery beers in hand before the show kicked off. Many of this year’s artists were present and shared with us a range of photographic, multimedia and visual arts topics in eclectic and inspiring interpretations of this year’s theme of contrast. Our gorgeous event space, The White Loft, was abuzz with conversation afterwards as we discussed the artwork and shared our thoughts. The atmosphere was fun, festive and fabulous and we can’t wait to do it again next year!
