Xiao Fan Ru Ode of the journey
BILINGUAL CHINESE / FRENCH
On the occasion of the 9th edition of Carte blanche, the National Museum of Asian Arts - Guimet has chosen the contemporary Chinese artist Ru Xiao Fan. Painter, sculptor, storyteller, lover of life, poet of humour, he has imagined for the MNAAG a pantheon of delicate and facetious divinities.
72 sculpted works in porcelain, arranged in a fan like a mandala, will be specially gathered together in the rotunda on the 4th floor. This installation will echo the splendid collections of Chinese porcelain in the museum on the 2nd floor, whether from Jingdezhen or Dehua. Between permanence and difference, tradition and contemporaneity, East and West, dualities are also found in Ru Xiao Fan's dual artistic education.
