Huang Yong Ping Amoy/xiamen
One of the most well-known and controversial Chinese avant-garde artists today, Huang Yong Ping, founder of the Xiamen Dada group, incorporates elements of both Chinese and Western philosophies in his oeuvre. This monograph is based on a specific work conceived for his exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lyon, inspired by statues from the province of Fujian of a pantheon of gods. The work is both autobiographical and self-fictional in its permissive take on cultural readings and their floating meanings, as well as embodying an association of the past and present. With texts by Thierry Raspail, Deirdre Emmons, Donatien Grau and Doryun Chong.
