Where memory meets reality

By Zhang Zixuan (China Daily)

08:41, June 11, 2012

French artist Claire Tabouret has been in Beijing for three months since she won the 2012 Yishu 8 Prize. She lives at 59 Luoche Hutong and communicates with ordinary people. Tabouret also collects pieces of waste cloth to sew Chinese-style houses.

The artist sets gray tones in her acrylic and ink creations. These harmonize perfectly with her subjects, which hover in the realm between memory and reality. Such subjects include images of sunken houses or self-portraits, created daily for 17 straight days.

Her solo exhibition C'etait le printemps (It was Spring) is a summary of her three-month stay in Beijing and of the interaction between Chinese and French culture.

Until July 13, Yishu 8, Former Sino-French University, Jia 20, Dong Huangchenggen Beijie, Dongcheng district, Beijing. 010-6581-9058.
