Scope and Content

Exhibition catalogue for the group exhibition 'Inside China - L'Intérieur du Géant' held at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France, between 20 Oct 2014 - 11 Jan 2015. 

The exhibition, a result of a long-term collaboration between Palais de Tokyo and the K11 Art Foundation, presented five Chinese artists in dialogue with three French artists based around Nadar's 1863 photograph 'L'Intérieur du Géant' picturing the inflating interior of his sixty-metre high hot air balloon Le Geant. The artists negotiate over-production, monumentality, and rapid development, and by abiding by their own temporalities, turning internal investigation into the strangeness of material fact.  As Le Geant elevated Nadar, the artists in this exhibition propel us to new perspectives: from weight to levity, from mental perception to physical manifestation, from the past to the hallucinatory future.
