HONGLEE CURATOR

We are an international art agency currently working with Paris and London galleries and artists. We act as a bridge between artists and galleries, and we initiated more than 30 different exhibitions both in Paris and London since the year 2017, which was a great opportunity to introduce artists' works to the European public. Our role is also to help connect European galleries or European artists who are interested in the Asiatic art market.


In a word, we could say that our agency is a “moving gallery”. It does not remain in one place, but it keeps planning exhibitions and introducing artists to partner galleries located in Paris, London, Montreal, New-York, Seoul, Tokyo and Taiwan, while carefully taking into consideration the work of the artists and the specificities of the galleries, in the unique style of HongLee.

    KIM (I-OU) Young-Ja's Online Exhibition

    10 Oct 2021 – 24 Oct 2021

    As time passes, Kim Young-Ja thinks that living energy is beauty. That qi(氣) is deeply related to the life of a beautiful artist who embraces fragrance. Since the artist’s life is directly reflected in the work, the various lives themselves are positioned as the work. Her artwork is a story of diverse life that expresses the shapes that appear over time with water droplets symbolising vitality, dy- namic and lively images. This is dissol- ved into the work-feeling the vitality of life and at the same time being reborn as a message of support for overcoming the darkest times. She hopes this will lead the viewer to feel that energy and be moved by it. Her pieces are currently in progress amid changes in form and content. Kim Young-ja is famous for her lyrical sentiments. There is her cherished time, the thrill of first love, a pink mountain and yearning for the good old days in childhood in her works while a sense of vitality is from the colours of violet and blue. ‘Lively’ is a series of works delivering a message of thrill of the first encounter while ‘Mine’ is an expression of harmony between water drops and women though the world is born anew. One might feel a sense of tenderness, pure, peaceful, splendid, feminine yet strong and dynamic energy in her works. Sharing a beautiful memory and a jour- ney to find one’s own life is like a gift for everyone. In her artworks, water, circles, water drops, and women have a com- mon destiny expressed through abstract and representational. She also uses reconstruction of forma- tive, experiment and movement of co- lours in order to deliver harmony and future-oriented power.

    Fleur d'amour

    13 Sep 2021 – 24 Sep 2021

    The paintings are becoming flowers of love and they make love blossom around the world. When we touch the love in us, we can just feel the richness and generosity of nature and the strength of creativity itself. Accept your holiness, power and beauty as it is. You can just receive and enjoy the joy of living with your whole body. The feeling of mixing and melting that you are experiencing when you are sharing love, the feeling when heat spreads from the depths of my heart when I draw a picture. A sense of unity with great love. The joy of feeling love itself. Each of us connected to the path of light that leads to great love. The sparking delight itself when touching that love was expressed in the works. A paintings created with prayer so that we can enjoy and resonate with the door of love.

    Flowering by Misook KIM

    10 May 2021 – 25 May 2021

    The work of Misook Kim is a composition of basic elements of art (points, lines, faces, shapes and colors). The point is at the origin of any form and the symbol of life. It is the first detail that the eye perceives and extends to the universe. Its production depicts human psychology by appropriating the peculiarities of the objects of everyday life and the staging of a naked woman in a flower. On the other hand, this flower illustrates the aspiration of? Misook Kim evokes the theme of flowers by reverie by reinterpreting nature through the composition of different colors. The artist's technique is to erase the colors of the flowers and use the transparent paint to create a synergy between life and nature. Subsequently, this void filled by the application of bright and monotonous colors promotes the therapeutic benefits on the viewer. The energy that these colors emerge is such a balm for the body inviting us to momentarily forget the weight of everyday life and to carry out an introspection. Misook Kim believes in the virtues of Art Therapy. The harmony between man and nature would be a way of finding inner serenity.

    I, the others, and outside

    01 Dec 2020 – 21 Dec 2020

    Bringing the figure of the artist back at the center of the exhibition and his solitary process of creation: this is what the exhibition’s theme is all about: “I, the others, and outside”. How does the artist reflect on the others as an external group to self, and to the outside? In these peculiar times, both other people and the outside world seem to become one, a phenomenon of curiosity and strangeness for the artist to observe, and portray. “I”, the artist, the individual, the unique person creating visual representation of something else, sometimes themselves, in a chosen environment. “The others”, those who are not “I”, sometimes outsiders, always different, often seen as a group. The relationship the artists pertain in the presence, or absence, of the others in his art creates a unique relationship. It is the same with the “outside”, which lately became forbidden, always contemplated, and the way the artist sometimes portrays himself in this external world. Yet, the outside is often emptied of human presence, distant from humanity except through its visual representation. At a time when one often finds themselves lost as a person, distant from the group, and separated from the outside, the artist expresses in many ways’ solitude, confinement, community, and wilderness.

    Lee.K & Cho Hui-Chin

    20 Aug 2020 – 05 Sep 2020

    Lee.K “I do not want to reply to indelicate questions in the world. That’s one of the reasons why I don’t draw mouths.” Denial of Language: The mouth, the only human body part that communicates by language, can control human feelings in different ways. LEE K’s artwork is based on his idea that the properties of the mouth imply loss of feeling, lack of communication, misapprehension and broken heart caused by language. Damaged emotions from denial of the real signification of the mouth are artificially expressed in his two-dimensional images. The feelings and emotions at some moments in the artist’s life have been accumulated and congealed as the stigma of the mouth in his images. The reason for distortion of the shape of the mouth in his artwork is defined as “Denial of Language”. “Pain which cannot be told, pain which we cannot tell, and glorifying the feeling of a person who experiences extreme anger with a metaphor of a plaster statue.” Cho Hui-Chin Artist Cho Hui-Chin is a resist-destiny female artist suffering from the distorted world and enjoying doing distorted artworks. Her grotesque yet serene art works explore the existence between life and death, investigate the darkest humanities, and reveal the fetish. She works across painting and sculpture and with deeply symbolic materials, which she says could be asscociated with « life once lived. » Visuals and sounds, artists and emotions link as inspiration and provide experimental reference : Joseph Cornell’s three-dimensional spatial arrangements and white noise, cats purring and Louise Bourgeois, pleasure and Hannah Hoch, acting outrageously and researching James Ensor.

    Panta Rhei - Everything flows

    10 Jun 2020 – 20 Jun 2020

    'Panta Rhei' is an antient Greek phrase by Heraclitus that means 'everything flows'. We as human beings and the world around us are in constant motion, in the process of flow and change. And our ability to adapt to the world that changes, and our ability to change the world when we change ourself make our existance a wonderful masterpiece. The whole our life is the work of art that is constantly in the flow, changing its appearence, ideas, materials, and colors. Every artist in this exhibition could capture the 'flow', the change of their inner world, ideas and the world around us. They present these changes in their unique way, they speak in the laguages that you will understand if you immerse yourself in the experience of reading their artwork. Everything flows, everything changes indeed, but the desire, the need to create and the love of art are somethings eternal. Curated by Oksana Kononchuk

    Hunyoung Jang's Online Exhibition

    10 Oct 2021 – 24 Oct 2021

    I visualize figures in paint that are constantly being deconstructed and deformed through collections and deformations of images that stimulate affect and sensation around me. I express landscapes created by invisible force that could be transformed into anything, expressed as the repetition of traces of overlapping brushstrokes and gestures. The flow and stains of screen-filled paints cross the boundaries of coincidence and inevitability, yielding a fluid interpretation and haptic experiences. These are lumps of flesh where the following contrasts intersect and mix: lines and planes, figurative and abstract, black and white and a variety of colors, forms and materials, and visible and invisible things. Through my works, I want to resonate with the inner space of the audience, accept their open appreciation, various interpretations, and imagination, and explore the possibility of new expressions that exist beyond the logic of representation.

    Lee.K's Online Exhibition

    01 Sep 2021 – 14 Sep 2021

    Lee.K is a South Korean painter that draws the portrait of celebrities such as Billie Eilish and Jimin, a member of the BTS music group. The artist reappro- priates the face of his models that are mostly well known to the public. Lee.K brings life to his compositions thanks to a succession of lines and curves that draw the lines of the face. The frenetic gestures, both fast and pre- cise, recall the procedure of engraving. The nuances of grey also associated with touches of colour, bring to light the emotions of the face. In a few strokes of pencil or brush, a portrait realistic and powerful comes to the surface. In his delicate play of composition, Lee.K creates an exchange with the spectator whose look is invited to follow the way to the model’s eyes. The artist focuses on this specific communication element. “I don’t want to answer personal ques- tions. It is one of the reasons why I never draw my models’ mouths.” The mouth is the only human body part that communicates through speech, and that can express feelings in different ways. Language is an essential element of communication but it can create mi- sunderstandings due to the complex di- versity of interpretations of the beings. This incomprehension created by the language is the reason why the artist chooses another way of communication through the look.

    Bowyi Song solo exhibition

    01 Oct 2021 – 14 Oct 2021

    Bowyi Song has been passionate about the arts since her youngest years, espe- cially oriental painting. For her first exhibition “ExH!bit10n” in Seoul, she exhibited auto-portraits. After this first event, she focused on the practice of colours, handling the subject of “change” while peaking the interest of the spectators to understand their perception. The main notions in her artworks are those of sharing, dialogue which encouraged her to participate in a group exhibition called “The Beauty of Flow : for all of us.” When she conceives a project, she finds her inspiration in the people that surround her. She prefers working in isolation, without any interference or distractions. In her opinion, having a preconceived idea of what her art will look like is a risk. She desires and enjoys working with the immediacy of the pre- sent moment. imagining an artistic style when she doesn’t know what to do yet is a risk for her work. She believes that our mortality and finite experience of life can create a deeper motivation to explore and experiment with new processes, which she finds to be more uplifting than sticking to tech- niques she is already familiar with. She thinks that there are so many days left to live, so many things to explore that it is depressing to lock herself in a precise creative style and to block her creativity instead of experimenting. What matters the most to her is to be able to express herself as she did for her first painting, putting forward her desires and feelings at that specific moment, when she painted this canvas. All of this creates a search for ourselves, a discovery and a form of enrichment, through the freedom of expression. She creates a relation with the spectator.

    Focus Paris 2021

    01 Jun 2021 – 10 Jul 2021

    From the being of the self to the canvas of the artist, identity constitutes the very foundation of art production. It is because of this that HongLee Curator have chosen the thème “Identity” for their upcoming art fair next Spring. What is identity? We will answer this question in a series of articles from now and until the launching of the event “Focus Art Fair: Identity” on June 25 2021. Each week we will explore this subject and how it relates to the works to be presented in the three day long exhibition that will take place in Paris at Atelier Richelieu. The term identity refers to being who or what a person or thing is. It is the elements that shape the existence of something or someone. Therefore, art being one of the main vehicles for the expression of the self, is also a main vector to determine identity. Focus Art Fair invites artists to express their own identity through their works. From ancient human civilizations artists have found a way to exist through their art, sometimes even creating an alter ego, an identity totally shaped by their idea of self or their ideal self. In a painting, a sculpture, a photography, beyond the very obvious self-portraits, artists pour themselves into their work and shape their image and role in society by doing so. Once their creations meet the public eye they not only determine a new identity of themselves but have also in many occasions moved the core or art history creating brand new art movements. You can not think of cubism, fauvism or dadaism without naming their pioneers. In the same way you will not find a work of art that doesn’t tell a story about its creator. Their identity is at the center of their work, it becomes the work. In this occasion HongLee Curator will present a variety of art pieces from artists from all over the world. Artists such as the russian social media sensation Ellen Sheidlin who in each creation bends her identity through surrealism. Or the Korean pencil master Lee. K, who invents new selves on each of his portraits. Besides them around one hundred artists will participate in the exhibition making a connection between their artworks and their identity.

    KidCup World

    07 Jun 2021 – 25 Jun 2021

    De la rencontre entre Léo, designer brésilien, et Steph, un Lyonnais féru de décoration, né l’artiste Léo & Steph ainsi qu’un univers à la lisière entre monde de la décoration et milieu de l’art. Cette double identité se retrouve dans des toiles qui sont empreintes d’une atmosphère plaisante et joyeuse : tant les tonalités chromatiques que la présence d’objets du quotidien permettent d’ancrer les œuvres dans un décors qui nous est familier. Cette pratique du détournement des objets du quotidien est une caractéristique du néo pop art, mouvement auquel Léo & Steph se rattache. Cependant, le néo pop art se distingue aussi par sa volonté de produire un art qui soit accessible à tous. Cette démarche se retrouve dans la création de Kid Cup ; un personnage très présent dans l’œuvre de Léo & Steph. Cet individu androgyne à l’allure nonchalante se veut être un reflet de notre enfant intérieur. L’absence de traits distinctifs permet ainsi à chacun de s’identifier et de percevoir le tableau comme un certain reflet de son identité.

    Jean Michel Landon - In their Eyes

    15 Apr 2021 – 28 Apr 2021

    Jean Michel Landon’s photography offers us a humanistic approach beyond the sensitive. His photos are part of a collective memory and capture the daily life of its inhabitants. His instinctive and sincere work reveals an unfiltered view of these neighbourhoods. Jean Michel Landon illustrates the life of these housing estates whose mark is gradually fading as the buildings disappear; he is an artist committed to social photography. Our online exhibition In Their Eyes brings out the spontaneity of Jean Michel Landon’s work, through his compositions with shades of grey and in the subjects of his photographs. A communion has been established between the artist and the inhabitants. This circle of trust has allowed him to capture scenes of daily life. Jean Michel Landon has spent many years in these popular neighbourhoods. He appears before us with a sincere, benevolent feeling about a forgotten youth. This vision breaks with a fantasized representation of these cities. It expresses their strength, but also their sensitivity. Recently, the artist published his book called An unexpected adventure. This collection of photographs and words of inhabitants of these buildings testifies a reality that is often ignored. - La photographie de Jean Michel Landon nous offre une approche humaniste au-delà du sensible. Ses photos s’inscrivent dans une mémoire collective et immortalisent le quotidien de ses habitants. Son œuvre instinctive et sincère, dévoile un regard sans filtres de ces quartiers. Jean Michel Landon illustre la vie de ces cités dont l’empreinte s’efface peu à peu au fil de la disparition des immeubles ; c’est un artiste engagé dans la photographie sociale. L’exposition en ligne Dans leurs yeux emmène la spontanéité du travail de Jean Michel Landon tant par ses compositions de nuances de gris que par les sujets de ses photos. Une communion s’est établie entre l’artiste et les habitants, ce cercle de confiance lui permettant de saisir des scènes de la vie quotidienne. Jean Michel Landon a passé de nombreuses années auprès de ces quartiers populaires. Il nous offre un sentiment sincère, bienveillant sur une jeunesse oubliée.

    Un certain regard sur le Brésil

    02 Mar 2021 – 14 Mar 2021

    Gabriel Eduardo Scabora (1995) from Araras in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. Graduated in Visual Arts and post-graduated in Higher Education Teaching. He started his involvement with art from childhood initially with drawing later with painting and photography. Photography arises from the old charm with family photographs, and later on from the financial possibility of buying a camera. Gabriel takes photographs intending to document events but mainly to transmit how he feels being at that moment. His photos are records of special, unique occasions and places in his life with a poetic narrative. Gabriel’s photographs are above all a portrait of himself. Curated by Stéphanie

    AREMY

    08 Feb 2021 – 21 Feb 2021

    Born in January 1972, ARemy is a painter whose canvases can be defined by colours, movements, light, but above all the poetry that emerges from them. ARemy spent her childhood and adolescence divided between France where she is from, Africa and South America, then the United States. Travels and landscapes engraved in her mind that pervade her paintings.. Far from the only aesthetic research, ARemy considers a canvas as a receptacle of emotions, those of the public but also those of the artist. Inspired by nature and its glimpses of lights, shapes, lines, colours that surround us and mingle with each other. She seeks to transcribe emotions that emerge from them. Furtive emotions that express and overlap in her painting and give all their depth and strength to her artworks. When she starts a canvas, she does not know what would be the final result. Large formats allow an overflowing and limitless means of expression. In a succession of layers, the colours come and go and are overlaid. They disappear in part, definitively or momentarily. The material is generally moulded with a knife. ARemy stretched, scraped, caressed it with light and tiny movements, to create contrasts, transparencies, shapes. Until harmony and balance come as one.

    PARADE OF COLORS

    03 Feb 2021 – 23 Feb 2021

    - Hyunjeong Park In Park’s artworks, each square symbolises a person. Depending on the viewer, it could be seen as buildings, a forest, a blackhole, the universe or the Milky Way. The starting point of a square can be set up by the artist or another person. Such as the motto “We are one”, Park thinks our lives are like a web where relations have been woven into a square symbolising one person. People bloom like flowers and evolves with love and hope. Although the squares look similar, they all tell different stories. Whether it is a sunny, gloomy, rainy, melancholic or sad day. Whether it is a day where you show courage, get compliments or someone asks for forgiveness. Every emotion is put inside the square and turns into a palette of colours. Happiness, sadness, anger and joy can be seen in squares. Happiness turns into sadness. Sadness into happiness. Anger becomes generosity. Generosity into anger. From cuteness to fear. Each sentiment overlaps, intertwines and develops into a new story. - Jongsuk LEE The things that are unfolding in front of you. A vast plain, a mountain, a sea of mysterious sights and a feast of colors spread throughout the seasons. They change without remaining still for even an instant and they are to be found in every moment. Not only are these things perceived visually, but also the delicate sounds, scents, and feelings that we experience with the whole being meld together and deepen as time goes on. When we walk through space, we come to understand many things through our experience, but if later we return to this original space, we can reach the truth at the source of our initial feeling. This process represents for Lee a precious opportunity to reflect on life. - Soonhee YOO Soonhee YOO’s artworks are like her diary full of experiences she had over the years. She tries to reproduce them on canvas as symbols and metaphors of plastic arts. The permanence of Veracity, Virtue and Beauty are inspired by her family and friends that surrounds her. The artist chooses the objects represented in the canvas. But, depending on the message YOO wants to convey, she uses different material and always completes her works with oil colours and collage. To understand the various stages of the preparation of her artworks, the viewer needs to take a step back and clear her/his mind from prejudices. This is how the public can enjoy YOO’s artworks. The buried melancholy deep down her heart overflows, it turns into a white canvas which serves as a balm, a space of blessing, that purifies and frees her soul.

    BLURRED MOVEMENTS

    21 Jan 2021 – 04 Feb 2021

    Fabian Sommer’s first inspiration was an encounter with a photo of Michael Wessely. He liked the possibility to show more in a photo than a single moment or a long-term exposure with some blurred lights in the night. Now, to catch several moments in a single photo and also to break the straight lines of the object is the main claim of his work. The artist tries to create a transition from a real object into a surreal atmosphere which can be also understood as an homage to transience. The blurred looks of his photography will catch the viewer to take a closer to see and understand the whole image.

She hopes it will be shared with the viewers and it can move them emotionally.

    I Formula

    23 Nov 2020 – 31 Dec 2020

    The paintings depicting formulas are part of Sviatoslav Virsta's art project, called "I Formula", the project "I Formula" aims to develop ideas for the aesthetic embodiment of mathematical formulas in paintings and other art forms. Professors V. Maslyuchenko (Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Chernivtsi, Ukraine) andI. Ogirko (Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Lviv, Ukraine) became scientific consultants for Sviatoslav Virsta during the process of creating the paintings. According to art critics and experts in contemporary art from around the world, the art project "I Formula" opens a new direction in the space of contemporary art at the turn of the new century and millennium, based on the synthesis of contemporary art and science. The new direction of contemporary art was named φ-rstoizm (firstoizm) thanks to S. Virsta and art critic from Poland Monika Garbacz. The presentation of the project "I Formula" took place on November 26, 2017 in the Chernivtsi Cultural Center "Vernissage" on Ivan Franko street on the 55th anniversary of the birth of S. Virsta. Within a year from the opening of the exhibition, the role of mathematics in art was analyzed from a scientific point of view, in particular, a scientific article by V. Maslyuchenko was written and accepted for publication. This material was covered at two international and All-Ukrainian mathematical conferences. From a scientific point of view, the number φ (φ-rstoizm (firstoizm)) is found in mathematics (pentagram, Binet's formula) and in art, in particular in architecture. The golden section was studied by the ancient Greeks, in particular it is in the "Beginnings" of Euclid, but the name itself arose later, it was introduced by Leonardo da Vinci. Luca Pacioli wrote about his aesthetic role in art in his book “The Divine Proportion” (1508), which is believed to have been illustrated by Leonardo da Vinci. Similar mathematical motives appear in the works of the famous German artist Albrecht Dürer, author of the famous painting "Melancholy", you can also see them in the works of contemporary artists. The golden section plays an important role in the work "Aesthetic Studies" by the German psychologist and poet Adolf Zeising. The golden section is found in the Pyramid of Cheops, the Parthenon and other buildings, this proportion is considered the most beautiful for the human eye. Most of S. Virsta’s paintings of the art project "I Formula" looks like a black school board, on which mathematical formulas are depicted on the background of chaotic signs. Some of the paintings have a plot depicting the formulas that are related to each other. In other paintings, the free flight of the artist's imagination prevails. Some of them are related to the achievements of world-class mathematicians.

    Beautiful Darkness

    09 Nov 2020 – 16 Nov 2020

    Asayo Kawase's art works realistically express the darkness and chaos in one’s heart with "collages" and "abstract paintings" of photographs. They are made by fusing two different things or techniques, analog and digital, and even more than two things. For example, collages reflect the depths of the heart from the composition of beautiful nudes and trees, and the composition of nature and man-made objects that emerge on the black background. Most of the works are expressed in black and white only, and the photographs also look pictorial and fantastic. Take a closer look at the details. In the jet-black darkness, there is a world that you will discover for the first time when you look closely.

    CHO HUI-CHIN

    10 Aug 2020 – 16 Aug 2020

    I was raised in a multicultural country, the Taiwanese background deeply influenced by Chinese aes-thetics and the culture surrounding Japanese anime and manga, all of which have shaped the enticing space of imagination to me; my main subject matter is figures, and I have a predilection for baby fig-ures. my childhood was surrounded by the Japanese manga culture which makes me become ob-sessed with "figure"; you can easily tell the figures which are anima-like around my works I often postulate that painting and sculpture are the same manifestation since they both depict ambigui-ty in concrete dimensions to me, and this ambiguity attains layers of symbolism and meaning, which could be conveyed through a variety of compositions and motifs. Material is an important aspect of my work, and animal by-products such as vintage and antique leather symbolise creatures that were sacrificed by humanity and represent an ambiguous existence between life and death. Through my work, I intend to reflect on conflicting phenomenon, namely the inevitable relationship between obsessions and humanity. If ‘indulgence’ is postulated to be an aspect of humanity, this means that ‘obsession’ is the human nature and part of human beings’ spiritual needs; the behaviour of being overly obsessed with gratification shows that our instinctive needs, in particular those associ-ated with the dark side of humanity such as desire, fetish, and obsession, are magnified excessively. My work assumes that all patterns, objects, motifs, colours and materials can be analysed, decon-structed and criticised in all their manifestations and forms. The binary opposition in my work repre-sents the dichotomies between a material’s initial form and the value/definition given to that material. My intention is to evoke hidden metaphors that refer to the relationship of certain materials to life and death: the artworks were once living creatures. Consequently, my work deconstructs the value of ma-teriality and addresses the dilemma of using vintage, antique, luxury or animal by-product materials. The patterns or motifs in my work can be deconstructed, and the behaviour of viewers who speculate about the materials is considered part of the work and completes the process of deconstructing the value/definition of materiality. As a result, my work is experimental deconstruction. It establishes a dialogue which is an inner equi-librium between rational analysis and sentimental interpretations. By exploring these responses, the processes of deconstruction could help each individual viewer form their own perceptions flow through my works and uncover their own opinions about desire, fetish, ambivalence, sadism and ob-session.

From drawing to photography or painting to embroidery, they enable us to rub out the barriers, the boundaries surrounding us… resulting in going through a passage. Passage est l’occasion d’un lien, d’un échange autour du thème du "Monochrome". Ici, ces cinq artistes s’approprient ce sujet à travers différents médiums.

    Diogo Landô - Secret Garden

    13 Jul 2020 – 31 Jul 2020

    The Secret Garden is a collection of fictional portraits capturing the human individuality, soul and emotions. "Although my work is created with digital tools, I want my artwork to be real and about humanity. My images are created through photo manipulation, collage and digital painting, merging a complex of layers, textures and images that allow the figure to be more than what we see." - Diogo Landô Curated by Diogo Landô and Hong-Lee Curators.

    Artistic Voices

    31 May 2020 – 10 Jun 2020

    (EN) It is impossible to break off the relationship between an artist and his/her works. The artist expresses his feelings through his work. The public’s role is trying to reinterpret these feelings. Thus, creating a relation between the artist and the public so that they can communicate. Ryo Shimizu emphasises those famous artists who try promoting a pure art by the only way of marketing. He also highlights the famous artists’ attitude. Qiuchi Chen calls us out on our current society. As a Chinese national, he underlines the Chinese government’s attitude on social issues such as freedom, environment and war through the object. We hope that many of you will come to observe the work of Ryo Shimizu and Qiuchi Chen. (FR) Il est impossible de casser le lien entre un artiste et son oeuvre. L’artiste exprime ses sentiments à travers son travail. Le rôle du public est d’essayer de réinterpréter ces sentiments créant ainsi un lien entre l’artiste et le public. Au point que, par le biais de son oeuvre, l’artiste et le public finissent par communiquer. Ryo Shimizu met en avant ces artistes connus qui essaient de promouvoir un art pur par le seul biais du marketing. Il met également l’accent sur l’attitude des personnalités artistiques. Qiuchi Chen nous interpelle sur la société actuelle dans le monde. En tant que chinois, il met en exergue l’attitude du gouvernement chinois sur les nombreux sujets sociétaux tels que les libertés, l’environnement, la guerre par le biais de l’objet. Nous espérons que vous serez nombreux à venir observer les travaux de Ryo Shimizu et Qiuchi Chen.
