An exhibition “Head On” by renowned Chinese-born contemporary artist Cai Guo-Qiang will be held at the National Museum of Singapore from July 2 to August 31. Singapore is the first country in Southeast Asia to host this spectacular group of artwork from the Deutsche Bank Collection.
The exhibition consists of three parts: the eponymous installation Head On, where replicas of 99 life-sized wolves, run fearlessly and collide one after another into a glass wall; Illusion II, a two-channel video installation that also documents the explosion project by the same title; and Vortex, a gunpowder drawing depicting hundreds of thousands of wolves chasing one another in a circular motion. Vortex will also be accompanied by a video that features the artist creating the drawing.
