As one of the most famous artists in France, Céleste Boursier-mougenot will host his first solo exhibition at the Shanghai Minsheng Art museum this month, running through November 12.
Boursier-mougenot will showcase his six contemporary works to Chinese audiences for the first time. Through these huge sound installations, the artist is trying to explain the relationship between humans and nature, and make people think deeply about death, future and life.
The highlight is a big installation, “choreography.” This is made up of hundreds of pebbles that transform the narrow escalator at the entrance of the museum into an ancient riverbed with a natural atmosphere. The escalator is seen as a link between the outdoors and the exhibition hall. Going through the narrow path, visitors gradually slow their pace.
It serves as a clue to lead the audience into the subsequent space.
