Tomorrow from 1:00-4:00pm, visitors will be invited to search the galleries for items to be added to a collective installation. You may be surprised by what you find! We want the finished result to tell an interesting Mattress Factory tale of who we all are together.
These will be hidden throughout the Museum tomorrow – find one and bring it back to the lobby to help us complete the puzzle!
This project is a nod to Ling He's installation Wish exchange dandelion in our new exhibition "Gestures: Intimate Friction" over at our 1414 Monterey galleries. Ling says, "My wish to explore generosity is dispersed through 99 puzzle pieces traveling in balloon style that would spirit innocent spotters to return them, with drawings on their backs, to the gallery. Neither the puzzle, nor the room, has a right answer – it is defined with how much each participant would like to give."
These are the puzzle pieces to Ling's installation Wish exchange dandelion which are somewhere out there in the North Side (if you find one, bring it back to the MF for free admission!)
At the bottom of each of these balloons is one of those clear puzzle pieces from Ling's Wish exchange dandelion. Museum visitors released these puzzle pieces and balloons during the exhibition opening on Friday, March 30th
In the spirit of Ling's community-building installation with all of those lovely red balloons, we'd love to see you tomorrow to locate and take these little pink coin machine capsules scattered around the galleries and help complete the installation!
