Mobile Art Exhibition for Chanel
At the invitation of Karl Lagerfeld, twenty international artists collaborated with Chanel to create Mobile Art - an exhibition inspired by elements that give the Chanel quilted bag its identity.
Mobile Art is a three-dimensional, cinematic experience in eight sequences. Each sequence made up of one or more artist installations - all intended to be experienced within the Mobile Art Pavilion created by iconic architect Zaha Hadid for Chanel.
Artists include: Nobuyoshi Araki(Japan), Leandro Erlich(Argentina), Sophie Calle/Soju Tao (France/Japan), Wim Delvoye(Belgium), Pierre & Gilles(France) and Yoko Ono.
Located at the Star Ferry carpark, the exhibition was launched in Hong Kong on 12 March 2008 at with an Art Gala Party. Guests included Karl Lagerfeld and Sue Jin Kang (Prima Ballerina, Stuttgart Ballet, Germany, pictured), and Zaha Hadid. Chanel Mobile Art will tour from 2008 to 2010, visiting Tokyo, New York, London, Moscow and Paris.
