(TRAVPR.COM) COMO HOTELS AND RESORTS - February 20th, 2013 -

Seminal art and fashion photographer will showcase her unique vision at the iconic Met Bar.

The exhibition, taking place from April 25th to May 31st 2013, will be on display in a specially commissioned pop-up gallery space within the hotel’s iconic Met Bar. Artwork by Chen Man will also be on display in one of the hotel’s exclusive Penthouse Suites, allowing guests to enjoy Chen Man’s work in the privacy of their own room.

The show will display nine lightbox images and two printed works in the Met Bar and six prints in the Penthouse Suite. Artworks will include several pieces from her ‘Bad Head’ series, which uses waste materials in the post-production process to drive the concept of environmentally friendly fashion. She says: “With the complex use of waste materials carefully constructed directly onto the models' form, the meaning is constructed by injecting the materials directly into the creative process.”

The themes of her work have inspired a special Chen Man Afternoon Tea, cocktails and canapés, which includes a refreshing ‘iced lychee, ginger and silver moon tea’, ‘pickled cucumber, shiitake mushroom and lily bud steamed buns’, ‘Chinese green tea brûlées’, ‘bamboo, red bean and sesame cupcakes’, and ‘Jasmine flower-scented mango and sticky rice parcels’. All will be available in the Met Bar or as part of the in-room service in the Penthouse Suite. Guests staying in the Chen Man Penthouse Suite will also receive a signed book by Chen Man.

A graduate of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, Chen Man is China’s leading fashion photographer whose distinctive vision of feminine beauty and power has placed her among the image-makers of choice for luxury brands like Celine, Versace, Adidas, Chanel, MAC and Mercedes. Her work, considered defining of modern China, appears regularly in Chinese Vogue, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar.

Chen Man participated in the Victoria & Albert Museum’s ‘China Design Now’ exhibition in London. Her work has also been exhibited at the Salon National d’Art Contemporain at the Espace Cardin in Paris and Ullens Center of Contemporary Art in Beijing. The Today Art Museum in Beijing held a major solo retrospective of Chen Man’s work in 2011.

The exhibition will be free to guests at the hotel and customers at the Met Bar. An overnight stay in the Chen Man Penthouse Suite will cost from THB 20,000
