K11 Art Foundation (KAF) presented The Inferno, a solo exhibition by local artist AMA. The Inferno is an allegory of AMA’s spiritual journey through the darkness. Through paintings, poetry and music, AMA confronted past traumas, tribulations and her excruciating battle with alcoholism. The exhibition is a metaphoric dark forest that illustrates the hardships and difficulties the soul meets in detachment from the world, while reaching for the light of union with God.

This exhibition is the first part of a trilogy adapted from Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy: The Inferno, The Purgatorio & The Paradiso.

The Inferno kick started the As Far As Near project that newly launched by KAF, the evolution from the old and new self has resonated the bigger theme.
