The Club of Contemporary Art presents an exhibition "Shangai Guangzhou" of Qiu Jie and Gilles Porret
"The man who comes from other mountains". This is how Qiu Jie signs his works with the characters Ta xiang shan ren,
With his pencil drawings he confronts the history of Chinese society and Western culture. He draws on existing images extracted from an infinity of sources and creates his nested compositions, linked to the whole, in the service of a narrative scheme, while keeping their independence.
"Guangzhou has thrilled me", Guangzhou, with its constant commotion, where we pack, distribute and transport the goods 24 on 24, for other lands. This Chinese city where Gilles Porret stayed inspired him for these colorful adhesives tapes.
Artist of color, visual artist making canvases, objects, installations. He works on the meaning and the play of colors, the monochrome and its surpassing. Gilles Porret uses adhesive tape for his color and his matter, questioning it as material of "pictorial" concept and artistic stakes.
