Inflatable Art; Clotilde Courau and the Love Letters of Edith Piaf; Bassist and Composer Edgar Meyer

In part one, we’re looking at some art which you may not have been able to avoid seeing over the past week or so. Every newspaper, every TV station, seems to have been bringing us images of giant sized inflatable art works, either a cute giant rubber duck, or some more disturbing giant sculptures brought here in the Mobile M+: Inflation exhibition. The exhibition, which opened on April 25th, is organized by the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority. It’s located on the future site of the Museum M+. It’s part of an initiative by the management, using art to build a connection with the audience even before the museum opens in 2017

This year is the 50th anniversary of Edith Piaf’s death. She died on October 10, 1963. Piaf was a great and much loved performer, but in her personal life she saw much unhappiness and tragedy. Last weekend, as part of Le French May, Clotilde Courau gave us an insight into her turbulent love life with a reading of exclusive love letters written by Edith Piaf six months after the death of her great love Marcel Cerdan.

Bassist and composer Edgar Meyer spans many genres of music. His styles include classical, bluegrass, country and western, and jazz. He’s worked as a session musician in Nashville, and with an assortment of chamber groups, collaborating with such people as Joshua Bell, Yo-Yo Ma, Zakir Hussain, James Taylor, violinist Mark O'Connor, and Alison Krauss. On his own 2006 album he showed even greater musical versatility, playing every instrument including the piano, double bass, guitar, banjo, viola da gamba, mandolin and dobro. He’s been in Hong Kong over the past two weeks to collaborate on the Intimacy of Creativity series of music events. Ben Pelletier talked to him before his concert last Sunday.
