Tweaklab was commissioned to document the action of Cai Guo-Qiang “Hanabi: Sparks of inspiration”: a fireworks display above the architectural models of Frank Gehry during the exhibition “Solaris Chronicals” at the Atelier de Mécanique, Campus Luma Arles. Taking centre stage was the model of Quanzhou Museum of Contemporary Art (QMOCA). Quanzhou is the hometown of Cai Guo-Qiang. The fireworks were supervised technically by Groupe F.

Three Tweaklab camera crews recorded the action, which took place twice, on 06.07.2014 at 11am and 6:30pm. The multipiece fireworks lasted two minutes each. The video documentation was edited on site, supplemented with a statement by the artist and integrated into the current exhibition.
