Mobile M+: Inflation! Catalogue
Published by M+, West Kowloon Cultural District Authority
Chinese and English
"Mobile M+:Inflation!" is an outdoor exhibition of large-scale, inflatable sculptures by Cao Fei (China), Choi Jeong Hwa (South Korea), Jeremy Deller (UK), JIAKUN ARCHITECTS (China), Paul McCarthy (USA), Tomás Saraceno (Argentina) and Tam Wai Ping (Hong Kong) curated by M+, Hong Kong's new museum for visual culture, on the future site of the park of West Kowloon Cultural District. As an extension of an exhibition that seeks to explore ever-shifting notions of nature and artifice, intimacy and monumentality, permanence and temporariness, as well as beauty and the grotesque in the realm of constructed landscapes, the catalogue is a collection of short essays on the artists' oeuvre in relation to the exhibition by Tobias Berger & Pauline J. Yao, as well as articles on the relationship between art, architecture, landscape and public space by Michaela Crimmin, Ho Siu Kee and Marisa Yiu.
M+ has prepared materials for primary school students and secondary school teachers in conjunction with “Mobile M+: Inflation!” exhibition, with the aim to facilitate a better understanding of the exhibition by suggesting different ways of engaging with the artworks.
Adventures in Giant's Land
With the aim to provide an enjoyable and relaxing learning platform for primary school kids, this booklet is designed to let their creativity roam wild as they enjoy the exhibition. We hope parents or teachers can guide the children in tackling the tasks, in order to help them grasp some of the more abstract ideas of the show, while also find out more about the individual works and the participating artists’ practices and approaches.
Secondary School Teaching Pack
This teaching pack has been designed to support secondary school teachers in planning a visit to the exhibition, with a collection of information about the exhibition, exhibiting works, the artists and some of the key concepts and themes of the exhibition. It includes simple games and activities, suggestive questions and examples.
