Sotheby’s Hong Kong is thrilled to announce its first edition of Contemporary Discoveries for 2023, Down the Rabbit Hole! At the onset of the Year of the Rabbit, the auction is a warren of possibilities, presenting a fantastical selection of artworks ranging from paintings to sculptures that act as passageways for collectors, new and seasoned alike, to explore and expand on new horizons in the realm of art collection.


The curated auction unlocks the many ways art can offer a form of escapism from the mundane realities of everyday life, opening up alternative worlds for the elsewhere and the otherwise. Featuring a diverse array of works by sought-after contemporary artists, including Ayako Rokkaku, Chun Kwang-Young, Genieve Figgis, Jordi Ribes, MR., and Tania Marmolejo, the exciting line-up invites you on a journey into realms of fairy-tale whimsy and surreal dreamlands. The childlike playfulness of this eclectic assemblage delves into the relationship between the sublime and the ridiculous, opening up new ways of seeing not only ourselves but also the world around us.
