Dedicated to the discovery and presentation of emerging art scenes in China and France, a long-term collaboration between K11 Art Foundation and Palais de Tokyois inaugurated with the exhibition Inside China – L’Intérieur du Geant.
This exhibition was first exhibited at Palais de Tokyo last year in October, and it is rotated to Hong Kong this year with two new participated artists; in which it presents six Chinese artists in dialogue with five French artists.
The artists negotiate over-production, monumentality, and rapid development, by abiding by their own temporalities, turning internal investigation into strangeness of material fact.
The Chinese artists capture something ineffable which is deeply connected to the self and engaged with their immediate surroundings and the world: a spirit, an attitude, a sensitivity, and an individual mode of existence. Their works placed in a new context in dialogue with those of the French artists, forming new adjacencies, and productive interferences.
