“Water lines”
Zhu Hong
Curator: Katell Jaffrès

The Musée d’arts has given Zhu Hong free reign over the forecourt for a six-month period.

Like all forecourts, this square opens out onto the city, creating a mise en abyme between interior and exterior, and blurring the lines between sculpture and building, indoors and outdoors. This game of opposites continues inside the museum’s salle blanche, which will host a selection of Hong’s drawings and sculptures for three months, most of which were created for the exhibition. After studying at Dijon’s fine arts school, Zhu Hong (born in 1975 in Shanghai, currently living and working in Nantes) draws and paints water in all its forms. She explores its myriad colours and states, transcribing them through infinite pencil and brush strokes. For the Musée d’arts, Hong also offers a reinterpretation of the museum’s spaces by appropriating elements of the structure’s 19th century architecture into her show.
