Midnight Message @Galerie Alain Hens

  • Galerie Alain Hens 156 Kloosterstraat Antwerpen, Vlaanderen, 2000 Belgium (map)

We are pleased to invite u for 'Midnight Message' at Galerie Alain Hens where Xinyue Yan will show a selection of paintings and drawings, building up a dialogue with the space and notions of design. ‘Xinyue Yan is a Chinese artist who lives and works between Antwerp, Belgium and Shanghai,China. She received her MFA in painting from the Royal Academy of Fine Art Antwerp. Having lived in different countries in the past few years ,she has gained diverse sensibilities and perspectives from the experiences of geographical shifting and disciplines crossing. Xinyue likes to manouver the recurring elements in her paintings with different painterly methods to challenge the viewers' expectations. She creates different energies and constructs different spaces that interact with each other inside one painting. She has no intention to involve the viewers in a certain narrative context, yet she invites them to read the paintings and enter a broader space of imagination. Xinyue persistently explores painterly possibilities, her burlesque attitude in her paintings induces the viewers to break free from the serious reality of contemporary city life and (re)gain an exuberant vitality in this burlesque yet contemplative atmosphere.’ The works will be showed until the 4th of October.
