Wang Keping in Residency: Meet the artist in his open-air studio

The exhibition “La Lumière des Mondes” (The Light of the Worlds) in 2019 provided Wang Keping with the opportunity to discover the Domaine des Etangs: on this occasion, the artist from China exhibited a couple in maple, as well as the curled-up body of a woman, conjuring up the essence of Life.

Commissioned by Collection Dragonfly, the sculptor produced in September 2020 a large-scale sculpture from a tree handpicked on the estate. For Wang Keping, Nature is the matrix of Art: it guides and inspires him. Wood itself whispers to him, revealing what he will discover within it.

On the afternoon of 23rd September, the public had been invited to become acquainted with the artist and his work in an open-air studio. This event was an opportunity to discover or rediscover his work during a privileged moment and conversation and to witness the creative process at work behind the piece which later joined the Art and Nature trail of the Domaine.

Activities relating to woodcarving are organized for young and old alike thanks to the participation of local specialists and an afternoon treat prepared by the pastry chef of the Domaine will be served to each participant. An occasion to meet an internationally renowned artist, to enjoy alone or with your family in a wonderful natural setting.
