The Artling recently visited one of Aman's newest outposts, Amanyangyun, an hour or so outside of downtown Shanghai. Part of the Aman Resorts collection of hotels, Amangyanyun was named Hotel of the Year at the AHEAD Asia Awards 2019. Designed by Kerry Hill Architects, this resort was part of a restoration of a 2,000-year-old forest. This mammoth effort preserved several antique buildings from the Ming and Qing dynasties that were salvaged from their original site in Jiangxi province, avoiding a demolition that would have made way for a new dam. A total of 10,000 Camphor trees and 50 historic buildings were transported 600 kilometers to this now stunning site.
Nestled within Amanyangyun is Han Feng Art Space, this stunning location showcases two sprawling art spaces with dramatic arched ceilings. The first space features Han Feng’s own private art collection, while the second space houses a selection of curated artworks available for sale. Her private collection consists of works that she's collected over the years, many of which were purchased to support her artist friends throughout their early careers. For Han Feng, the friendships she has forged over the years have far greater value than any reward the artworks may bring.
Although best known as a fashion designer, Han Feng has always been an active player in the contemporary Chinese art world and rose to prominence in New York in the early 1990s. Within seven years she was the first Chinese fashion designer to show at New York Fashion Week.
These days, Han Feng has scaled back her output, allowing herself more freedom in pursuing her interests in art. She mainly focuses her energy towards supporting young Chinese and international artists, giving them a space and platform to showcase their works.
