Dedicated to the discovery and presentation of emerging art scenes in China and France, a long-term collaboration between K11 Art Foundation (KAF) and Palais de Tokyo was inaugurated with the exhibition Inside China – L’Intérieur du Geant. This exhibition was first exhibited at Palais de Tokyo in October 2014 and was rotated to Hong Kong in 2015 with two new participated artists, in which it presented six Chinese artists in dialogue with five French artists.

The artists negotiated over-production, monumentality, and rapid development, by abiding by their own temporalities, turning internal investigation into strangeness of material fact.  The Chinese artists captured something ineffable which is deeply connected to the self and engaged with their immediate surroundings and the world: a spirit, an attitude, a sensitivity, and an individual mode of existence.  Their works placed in a new context in dialogue with those of the French artists, forming new adjacencies, and productive interferences.

KAF was very excited to build this platform, to nurture more creative talents from Greater China to be seen, heard and appreciated, and in turn inspire us to think, live and contribute to our society better.
