Opening: Fri 14 Sep 2018, 6 pm
Exhibition: 14 Sep – 31 Oct 2018, 9 am – 8 pm (longer opening hours on event nights at L’Espace)
You are invited to the exhibition “L’infini du miroir” (Infinity of Mirror) by Christian Hadengue, Le Thua Tien & Mark Lockett – an encounter between poetic and visual expressions, inspired by Western & Asian imaginations.
This is a meeting between artists who have adopted a language naturally ‘out of step’ with their cultural backgrounds (Western and Asian). A creation that reveals a deep fascination with ‘otherness’, in matter and in spirit. The question of cultural transversality becomes a deliberate choice. The notion of ‘origin’ is sidestepped, so that an instinctive and intuitive vision is found: a way of thinking beyond defined cultural boundaries.
The exhibition is expected to be a unique experience, allowing the audience to enjoy calligraphic artworks by Christian Hadengue and Le Thua Tien’s paintings, with music composed by Mark Lockett in the background, accompanied by Hubert Haddad’s poems.
