MPMP creates art and designs for people who look to find inspiration, beauty and a new outlook to the future. MPMP is a vision inspired by an utopian theory that arose from an imaginary journey to the magnetic mountain of Magnitogorsk. By creating and producing items that encourage people inspired to reflect, MPMP believes that it can help raise the level of consciousness towards both nature and our own human experience. MPMP was founded in 2011 by Katrin Reinfurt in Beijing.
In the same year, MPMP did the Stainless steel installation at WUHAO, the installation represents a metallic lake of magnetic surface covering the 15 square meter old pond while its shape follows the its original wavy shore. On top of the surface, two completely identical monoliths arise. They are faceted blocks of sleekly polished stainless steel – silver mirrored for the faces looking inwards the lake, black mirrored for those facing outwards. The combination of those multiple mirrors creates an environment where all the surrounding elements, such as the sky, rocks, trees … are being reflected and appear in surprising positions and perspectives. By entering the installation, the complexity of the reflections, and the fact that even the floor is a mirror itself, are challenging the perception of space. In its depth and clarity the stainless steel surface of the lake catches the beauty of nature and it magnetically charges every image that is reflecting upon it. The Jiashan is pure and mystic, it is a crossroad of energies, a magnetic point. It is the perfect location to build an altar dedicated to the power of magnetism.
