Fougaro - "China" Exhibition, Dec. 2021 until April 2022

Fougaro China exhibition

The Fougaro Art Center is hosting in its Blue2 hall a show dedicated to Chinese culture, with paintings and artefacts. The exhibits of the "China #1 -Travelling through old China" exhibition belong to the FKP Collection and are complemented by items belonging to the researcher D. Xanthoulis.

The idea behind the exhibition was to bring into view neglected aspects of Chinese daily life, from around the turn of the 19th century: China #1 focuses on nine female portraits of the Qing dynasty (1636-1912). Two rare realistic landscapes depicting industrial buildings and trains date to the same period.
These works are interspersed with objects, wooden cages and boxes intended for various uses, small furniture items, stools and chairs, two exquisite armoires, a hand-carved console table, two hanging lanterns, and a Ming-era ceramic horse (1368–1644). The exhibition also includes a series of clay vessels used in the kitchen or for transporting and storing commodities. The oldest of these items is a vase of light-colored clay from the Tang dynasty (618–907), and two larger Shizhou from the Qing era.
The exhibition is rounded off by two contemporary works from the FKP Collection: a photograph by Marina Abramović with a drawing by her from 1998, when she walked the Great Wall of China, plus an emblematic portrait on canvas by the Spanish artist Manuel Rodriquez, of the tragic wife and empress consort of the last Emperor of China.
