The Plane of Rewriting
This exhibition explores the gestures of rewriting as a transformation process of self-renewal, where new traces are created on top of past debris. The exhibition brings together eight Chinese artists whose works illuminate the idea of writing, rewriting and erasing as a thread of metaphysical action connected to a personalized scenario in art creation. In the action of rewriting, the audience encounters the artists’ deep contemplation, reflection and transformation that inform their everyday existence in the world without presupposing any teleological goals.

The women of China are often pictured with an outdated, stereotypical image of submissive and subjugated ladies, quietly waiting at the beck and call of men. Throughout China, the women of Shanghai are renowned for being beautiful and delicate creatures. But at home they are known as “tricky wives” who make their husbands do as they say. At the office, they are relentless professionals who display equal, if not more, competitiveness than men. These women likewise take the lead all over China in fashion, displaying such decorous and audacious tastes to keep the country watching. In a tour de force through this ancient city and fabled culture, Bettina Rheims and Serge Bramly beautifully stage photographs of real women from all walks of life. Engaged in an ardent search for the spirit of Shanghai’s women, Rheims and Bramly instead found a place so fast-paced, so quickly evolving, that their quest was rendered moot.
Date: From March 3 to 25, 10 am to 7 pm
