IMMEDIATE BOARDING FOR THE SENSUAL WORLD OF WANG KEPING : "LA CHAIR DES FORETS"

Till September 12th, 2010 at the Musée ZADKINE : 'LA CHAIR DES FORETS" ( Forest Flesh).

The title says it all.


WOMAN by WANG KEPING

Sensuality, simplicity, vitality, smoothness, tenderness, Life, : talking about us "women" there ? Well, sort of, "Women" of another kind certainly ...  women of wood.

WANG KEPING not only loves women, but well knows how to evoke their powerful feminity and full curves  through the smoothness of the tree's flesh, with its full body feeling, with its branches and knots.

Haven't you ever noticed that when one comes next to a tree, one wants automatically to pat it, to let an innocent hand go smoothly over its flesh ? Well, WANG KEPING went a little further than just carressing it !

WANG KEPING is a Chinese sculptor, born in 1949, who was still in High School when enrolled in the Red Army to be "re-educated". He arrived in France in 1984 where he let his art flow towards feminity.
