The Hôtel de Caumont-Center d'Art presents an exhibition of works by the original French artist
Chinese Zao Wou-Ki (1920-2013), produced in collaboration with the Zao Wou-Ki Foundation.
The exhibition brings together 90 works from 1935 to 2009 (oils on canvas, watercolors and Chinese inks on
paper) from public and private collections.
This set aims to bring to light one of the artist's major creative themes: to invent new pictorial spaces built from his work on color and the representation of light. Light and space are in fact inseparable in his work and allow us to understand his recurring objective of "showing" what is not seen and which inhabits it, "the space of the inside".
