A passage to the interior of the self. The artists negotiate over-production, monumentality, and rapid development, by abiding by their own temporalities, turning internal investigation into strangeness of material fact.

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 Tokyo is 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.
K11 Art Foundation is very excited to be building this platform, to nurture more creative talents from Greater China to be seen, heard and appreciated, and in turn inspire us to think, live and contribute to our society better.
After Hong Kong, the exhibition will travel to the chi K11 Art Museum Shanghai in June 2015.
