Wang Haiyang – Until Nov 2nd, Paris/France

Wang Haiyang, Freud Fish and Butterfly, Video.

Press Release: “Wang Haiyang is far removed from the dominant currents of contemporary Chinese art, which are often characterized by social content and political metaphors. His work explores the various states of the subconscious and our twisted relationships with our desires. Faced with his canvases and videos, we are moved not so much to understand or explain them as to let ourselves be carried away by the unbridled imagination of the artist: the bodies transform and metamorphose, while enigmatic images put us face to face with disturbing emotions.”
Galerie Paris Beijing, Paris
