The Art Newspaper | Zhang Yunyao "Drawing Room"

The Art Newspaper, 13 Oct 2020

"Chinese artist Zhang Yunyao will present a special project Drawing Room at this year’s Asia Now. Curated by Hervé Mikaeloff, this project is a key chapter of the artist’s first European solo exhibition opening during the same time at a brand new gallery in Paris, Galerie Marguo. Drawing Room, a phrase that means both a historical living room and a room of drawings, features a series of brightly coloured felt paintings and paper drawings created during confinement in Paris this year. With references to classical photography and art history, this body of work is rich with symbolism as the artist’s attempt to blur sense of time and create a utopian atmosphere in the time of crisis."
