This time, "The Terrace", the lobby bar of the Humble House Ellie Hotel, specially invited "PUN", a well-known underground bar (Speakeasy Bar) in Xinyi District, Taipei, from 5/12 before the exhibition to 6/30 after the exhibition to jointly create " The Terrace X PUN co-branded art bartending, "Night Drunk. Art Tour", collides art and bartending into a multi-sensory feast of sight, smell and taste.
Located at the welcome entrance on the first floor of the hotel, the installation art of the conductive light-emitting panel "Bourrasque" (Bourrasque), which is like a piece of paper dancing in the air, is a British artist Paul. Paul Cocksedge's well-known works were first shown at the Lyon City Council in France in 2011. When Ellie Humble House opened in 2013, she specially commissioned Coxsky to tailor Ellie's version of "The Rising Wind" for the space on the first floor, and it became her first permanent installation in the world.
The bartender of the same name, "The Wind Rising", looks like plain boiled water on the outside. It especially interprets the transparency of the wind with its translucent liquor. The liquor is based on French gin soaked in fresh vanilla pods, infused with cardamom, apple cider vinegar and soda. Water, shake the body of the cup gently, the shredded coconut on the surface of the icicle swaying like a flying piece of paper, and the fresh spice smell floats out, highlighting the three-dimensional sense of the wind.
Stepping out of the elevator on the sixth floor, the video "Ah!" by Taiwanese artist Tsai Jiawei is playing on the left wall. The heroic brush lines on the wine glass are the bartender casually picking up the brush on the elegant and slender champagne glass, and putting it on the glass. The inner layer is lightly brushed with a layer of bamboo charcoal powder pectin, showing the image of ink floating in water. The elegant aroma of "Ah!" is based on Bacardi rum, infused with bergamot, cherry flavors and other liqueurs. With a light sip, the fresh, sweet and sour fruity flavor jumps to the tip of the tongue, and the finish rhymes with a hint of grapes The soft and bitter rhyme of grapefruit juice brightens the taste buds like the finishing touch.
The 9-minute black-and-white video of "The Day of Perpetual Night" on the wall in front of the elevator on the other side of the guest room floor is a black-and-white landscape ink painting from a distance, but it is a city night scene when viewed from a distance. It is the work of Chinese photographer Yang Yongliang. . The bartender used multiple contrasts to present, using Tanqueray gin, clarified tomato water, martini vermouth, etc. to blend into a clear liquor, accompanied by black floating sorghum crystal balls, highlighting the black and white bright contrast of the work. Secondly, feel the wonderful taste of crystal balls running on the tip of the tongue in the smooth liquor as a taste comparison. Then, the sorghum wine with strong oriental flavor boldly expresses the western-style bartending to show the contrast between the east and the west. The bartender also decorated the UFO-like martini glass and the UFO-shaped lemon, brilliantly depicting the UFO scene in the last 15 seconds of the work.
The fish-shaped bronze sculpture "The Oz Big Eye" by Taiwanese artist Yang Maolin is located in front of the bar at The Terrace lobby. Looking in from the big glass eye, you can see the famous fairy tale "The Wizard of Oz" "The protagonist Dorothy is hidden in. The bartender took this adventure full of courage as his idea, and used the beautiful swirling roses on the wine glass to describe the tornado that blew Dorothy to Oz in the story; The ruby shoes on Dorothy's feet are based on earl grey tea-infused rum, infused with red wine, apple orange liqueur and hazelnut sweet liqueur to add fruity aromas. The round and rich taste makes people feel like home. Warm, echoing the classic phrase "There's no place like home", and drawing a warm ending to this fantasy journey.
Standing in the outdoor garden on the sixth floor is the Israeli-born artist Sado. Bin. The sculpture "Nature Tower" by Zadok Ben-David shows the overlapping gestures of a group of dancers endowed with butterfly wings.
The bartender took the theme of "Butterfly Flying in the Stream" as the theme, and lightly brushed a touch of bright red on the body of the cup, symbolizing the rusty copper color of weathering steel that evolves with time and climate. The refreshing golden and translucent wine is made by extracting the transparent juice from tomato by clarifying method, and then blending it with sherry to express the umami of fish and shrimp by the stream. At the same time, the wild ginger flower growing by the stream is sous vide with absinthe to bring the floral notes. When it is delivered to the guests, the algae olive oil representing the stone moss is gently added to add a sense of coverage to the taste, as if walking by the river, feeling the natural atmosphere of the babbling stream and rock minerals.
The "Peony" pottery by Japanese artist Sugiura Yasuyoshi displayed on the outdoor terrace on the sixth floor is a specially commissioned artwork for the hotel. Raise the glass and smell it, and the charming aroma of "Peony" perfume rippling out. The bartender sprayed the white chocolate sauce on the inner layer of the glass to represent the clay material of the work with a subtle shape like soil. The base wine is oriental-specific sorghum wine instead of western-style base wine, echoing the magnificent name of peony "Oriental Kao". Then, a variety of liqueurs such as Peruvian Pisco grape distilled spirits, nectarine sweet wine, and Baihua nectar are used, combined with lotus mist juice and Verius sour grape juice, to excite more than six kinds of fragrant floral scents such as elderberry, violet, sweet-scented osmanthus, and cherry blossoms.
