Kwok Mangho Frog King Archive

Brief overview (-)

Asia Art Archive initiated a series of interviews with Kwok Mangho Frog King in October 2011 to survey and contextualise his personal archive—materials accumulated from the 1960s to early 2000s. He uses various media and modes of expression including experimental sculptures, installations, and ‘happenings’ for his work, which he then records as part of his artistic practice. Frog King’s spontaneous daily documentation of art scenes primarily in Hong Kong, China, and New York are also part of the collection.

The Kwok Mangho Frog King Archive consists of a selection of over 1,000 annotated slides and photographic documentations that are now publicly accessible via AAA’s digital platform. The collection offers a distinctive approach to inquire into Frog King’s dynamic artistic practices.

The complete archive and interviews will gradually be made accessible through Collection Online.
