MPAVILION CAPTURES GLOBAL ATTENTION: WALLPAPER*
We’ve had an overwhelming response in the media over the last two months. One article that stood out recently was published on 1 December by Wallpaper*, naming MPavilion as one of fifteen installations that capture the global public imagination. Their gallery explores significant public artworks and what they mean for their cities.
“A truly timeless installation, whether temporary or permanent, alters its surroundings by broadening the idea of what could belong there. What is done with art cannot be undone—and our world is richer for it. At the center of Melbourne’s rising architecture profile is a rotation of installations at Queen Victoria Gardens. One recent site-specific work to bloom in Victoria’s capital is Amanda Levete’s canopy of 52 resin petals. The graceful structure is deceptively strong—incorporating innovations in nautical engineering. Fitting technology for a work that transports you.”
Other works that made the list include ; ‘Cloud Gate’ by Anish Kapoor, Chicago; ‘Maman’ by Louise Bourgeois, Moscow; ‘Pluto and Proserpina’ by Jeff Koons, Miami; and ‘Encounter’ by James Turrell, Culiacán, Mexico.
