La galerie de la Biennale

Yang Jiechang’s work is made up of 3,000 painted porcelain reproductions of human bones, meticulously arranged in elaborate wooden frames. Part decorative knick-knack, part archaeological display, "Underground Flowers" is a consideration of the passing of time and the cruelty of political regimes. The artist left China at the age of thirty-three, at the time of the Tienanmen events in 1989. The dissolution of the Eastern Bloc, the end of the Cold War and the geopolitical reorganisation of the world date from this same period: they would shape Yang Jiechang’s entire life and, together with the years that followed, loom large in his oeuvre. During the Biennale 991 bones will be sold to the public – one only per visitor – in return for a minimum donation of 10 euros to Entretemps, an association which provides emergency accommodation in and around Lyon.

Artwork co-produced with the Jaeger Bucher gallery, Paris, and with the help of the association Entretemps, Lyon.
