Looking for an immersive experience with a beautiful love story? Then head over to The Love Me Hug Me Pop-Up. This Alzheimer’s themed pop-up encourages guests to celebrate life and cherish the present. We are excited to share Love Me Hug Me with you.
Love Me Hug Me is a seven-room pop-up exhibit in Soho with over 2,500 square feet. Elaine Hong founded this pop-up as a way to pay homage to her grandparent’s love story and the movie Wrinkles. As you walk through the exhibit, see, touch, feel, throw and interact with the elements in each room.
The Love Me Hug Me journey begins with a short love film between Modesto and Lolis. Then we visited the Memento Terminal, a room filled with beautiful blue butterflies that represent Modesto’s lost memories.
Then we walked into the Twisted Playground, a room filled with yellow folium ginkgo (leaves), vintage electrics and cinderblocks. This room symbolizes a memory ruin for Modesto.
Then we were on cloud nine in the Pink Station. We jumped inside the hot air balloon in this pink wonderland with pillowy clouds. This heavenly room represents a teenage date between Lolis and Modesto.
Next we strolled into a Secret Galaxy with a magical swing and full moon. They room symbolizes their life as soulmates and their own secret world.
The Fading Zone is the manifestation of Modesto’s diagnosis with Alzheimer’s. This room features many transparent mirrors that you can get lost in.
The exhibit concludes with the Love Crossroad. The room filled with arms represents how the people in Modesto’s life never give up on him and try to spark his memories. With the support of loved ones, people can find the meaning of life renewed everyday.
