The Chinese join Dakar’s art conversation

12 May 2014, 10:32

Dakar - Led by Yang Shu, the director of the X’ian Art Museum in China, a group of six  Chinese artists have crossed timelines for the 2014 Dakar Art biennale to learn, collaborate and produce art.

The artists, who with the exception of Yang Shu do not speak English or French, have set out to create from their experiences on each day of the biennale, which runs from May 9 to 14.

They hope to create art from banners, videos, performances and pictures about the biennale, after which they plan on collaborating with local Senegalese artists.

The first work which they created on day one of the biennale was a banner based on Chinese Communist propaganda. The banner is composed of the Chinese flag’s red hue  and “Travelling, Producing and Learning” is written in white in both Chinese and English.

The banner was displayed briefly at the IFAN Museum of Dakar.

Yang Shu also revealed that they will hold workshops on May 15 to exhibit all that was created during the ten days in Dakar before they head back to China.

Shu speaking for his comrades revealed that it was their first time in Africa, and he was enjoying the endless artistic possibilities that lay before him and his colleagues at Dak’Art 2014.
