MONUMENTA 2016. Huang Yong Ping
Since 2007, internationally renowned contemporary artists have been filling the Nave of the Grand Palais with masterful works designed for the occasion. After Anselm Kiefer, Richard Serra, Christian Boltanski, Anish Kapoor, Daniel Buren and Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Huang Yong Ping, the true founder of contemporary art in China, who now lives and works in France, takes up the challenge in 2016.
Known for his grand monumental works, Huang Yong Ping’s immersive, architectual exhibit features 8 small islands constructed out of 305 shiping containers, towered by a colourful 250-metre long aluminum skeleton of a snake and a five-metre-high reproduction of Napoleon’s bicorn hat.
Exhibition produced by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux – Grand Palais.
