Summarization of Content

Catalogue of works by the artist to accompany the exhibition 'Le passage du temps' by the Gao Brothers at Galerie Guislain Etats d'Art. Paris, held from 12 May - 17 Jun 2006. 

Gao Zhen and Gao Qiang have been on the artistic scene of contemporary art in China for the past twenty years, and together they have created a body of work under the name of the Gao brothers which can unequivocably be seen as an allegory of human emotion. In this exhbition in Paris, we can see new different phases and concerns, which nonetheless form a coherent work. In the large size photographs, meticulously re-worked on the computer, we are first struck by the perception of the world governed by the imaginary, but filled with men and women who visibly belong to our ordinary world, accessible to everybody; by a constant concern for what is human or rather human emotions; and finally, by their use of theatrical staging close to mystical or religious paintings.
