In resonance with the Lyon Biennial, the contemporary art center of the Nouvel Institut Franco-Chinois welcomes Mengzhi Zheng.
Arrived in Paris at the age of seven, he nourished himself from a childhood between his two cultures and became an artist. A resident of Lyon since 2012, this invitation is the perfect opportunity to discuss his work - with a contemporary eye - on issues of space and habitat, which has been driving him since a return trip to Ruian in 2008. Through drawings and volumes, the artist will invoke a large central sculpture imagined for this exhibition time. Frail skiffs on a table - Abandoned Models - and drawings on walls will complete his spatial approach of the place.
