2005 28×22.5cm 62 pages USD 30
Catalogue of solo exhibition by Gao Xingjian at the Asia Art Center in 2005. ‘He (Gao Xingjian) evokes an “inner vision” for which the destruction of reality is a prerequisite. He also speaks of an “inward gaze” – “When I close my eyes I try to see things; within the darkness there are tones, glimmers, potentials of seeing, I try to capture what is barely percreptible – the seed of a picture. Nothing fixed, nothing sharp.”‘ – extracted from essay by Philippe Dagen. The present catalogue includes artist biography and documentation of Gao’s participation in FIAC 2004.
