Chu Teh-Chun’s Symphony is the fifth solo exhibition by the renowned Chinese-French abstract artist Chu Teh-Chun at the gallery. His works are known for combining traditional Chinese painting techniques including calligraphy with Western abstract art.
This exhibition celebrates the artist’s centenary birthday and will exhibit 16 works, mainly works on paper, highlighting his iconic abstract works and calligraphy.
In conjunction with the exhibition, a documentary about his life will be premiered in the film section of Art Basel in Hong Kong and the French May Arts Festival. This 80-minute documentary is directed by the famous French director and writer Christophe Fonseca, and is co-produced by Les Films de L’Odyssée and the Foundation of Chu The-Chun. It reveals the artist’s unique artistic style through the combination of creative stage, dreamlike scenery, artwork and archive images, interspersed with previously unpublished quotations and dialogues.
