Pearl Lam Galleries presents a whimsical multi-sensory art exhibition
PAPINEE WORLD. Monkey Storytelling Kit.

HONG KONG.- PAPINEE, the global Children’s Storytelling Social Enterprise, collaborates with Pearl Lam Galleries to bring PAPINEE WORLD to Hong Kong. From 29 November 2016 to 6 January 2017, the multi-sensory art exhibition will inspire Hong Kong’s children into tomorrow’s global citizens. The fully immersive experience magics them to different cities around the world without leaving Hong Kong this holiday season.

The initiative is an extension of PAPINEE’s mission to inspire children through creativity and storytelling. PAPINEE WORLD became a reality when PAPINEE Founder, Dev Suj, reached out to Pearl Lam Galleries Founder Pearl Lam and described his dream to take the children of Hong Kong on a physical art-imagination voyage. Together, they are inviting children from all across Hong Kong to join their journey of discovery and hope.

"Imagination and curiosity is what empowers kids to dream about their future and soar through life with a smile,” says Dev Suj. “We wanted to bring the PAPINEE Animal Storytelling Kits to life through a spectacular multi-sensory art installation that takes children on a journey around the globe. PAPINEE WORLD will showcase a total of seven countries – from the grey skies of Great Britain's capital city London on the shoulders of the mighty Owl King Strix, all the way to a brightly lit night-time Frank Sinatra Times Square New York with the avant-garde pop culture American Deer President Odo. Through this unique art exhibition and the power of storytelling, we get to show kids how incredible the world is, inspiring them to close their eyes and imagine dreams they can aspire towards."

"It's the festive season and it's our responsibility to give to the children that need inspiration most. PAPINEE WORLD will take them on incredible adventures and their imaginations will bring happiness and hope," says Pearl Lam.

Giving Hope to underprivileged and disadvantaged local children
Starting on Tuesday, 29 November 2016 from 10am to 4pm on weekdays, PAPINEE WORLD opens its doors exclusively to underprivileged and disadvantaged local children, giving priority to those who are most in need of hope. With the help of a wide variety of non-profits, organisations, social services networks and schools, they will be transported to Pearl Lam Galleries SOHO 189 in Sai Ying Pun to enter a ‘time-warp’ transporter, and be taken to PAPINEE WORLD.

Entry is allowed only with the PAPINEE passport, which will be provided to the children in advance, which include necessary PAPINEE visas to the various countries. Children will be gifted PAPINEE Inspire Kits: educational and creative tools to aid in learning about the different cities they visit. In addition, there will be a schedule of storytelling sessions by Hong Kong visionaries who want to inspire tomorrow's leaders, give their compassion, and love to the children of Hong Kong.

Open to children and dreamers of all ages
PAPINEE WORLD will be open to public Monday to Friday from 4.30pm onwards, and all day on weekends. For more information, visit

Bringing PAPINEE WORLD to Central
Extending PAPINEE WORLD to Central, and welcoming Hong Kong’s young at heart to take a momentary flight of fantasy, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong has joined hands with PAPINEE and Pearl Lam Galleries to integrate PAPINEE WORLD into the hotel this festive season. The hotel’s lobby will combine a universe of creativity and art to become a fantasyland for family fun inviting all on a journey through Trafalgar Square, London with Owl King Strix, the city of Paris with Rus XIV the Horse, and the Japanese Gardens of Tokyo with Empress Felis the Cat.

The hotel will also house the largest PAPINEE sculpture ever constructed at 7 feet tall. Café Causette will also be converted into a PAPINEE Storytelling Café with storytelling events for children and a PAPINEE Pop Up store will allow guests to take home a reminder of their journey, with part of the proceeds from sales benefiting Changing Young Lives Foundation.

A community directive to share a message of hope
Hong Kong’s community has come together to bring this immersive art exhibition for the children of this city. Supporters that have stepped forward to make this dream a reality include Pearl Lam Galleries, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, Pure Land Foundation, Danny & Ming Fok and Joyce Liu, Hagao Studio, Giovanni Lion, Mario Bobbio, Robert Alexander II, Hong Kong Polytechnic University - School of Design - Master of Science in Multimedia Entertainment Technology, and Sheilen Rathod amongst others, showing that in Hong Kong there is no shortage of love and heart.
