Dance by CHEN Yiching, Contemporary Four-Panel Screen, Hand-Painted, Nihonga

About the Item

'Danse' (Dance) is a hinged four-panel screen covered with stretched paper on the front. The surface is hand-painted with mineral pigments and depicts a floral composition. Plants with long stems spread out from the left to the right of the painting, standing out against a cream background. The white and brown colours and the falling leaves give the whole piece an autumnal feel. The presence of red berries and, above all, the dragonflies with their colourful wings breathe life into this composition and underline the survival of living things despite nature's slumber as winter approaches. A blue fabric is stretched over the wooden frame at the back of the screen. Metal plaques, also featuring a floral motif, are positioned on the edges of the screen's frame. Each panel measures H 88 x L 47 x D 1.5 cm (H 34.6 x L 18.5 x D 0.6 in.). When the folding screen is fully opened, it measures H 88 x L 188 x D 1.5 cm (H 34.6 x L 74 x D 0.6 in.). CHEN Yiching (Taiwan, 1975), a specialist in Nihonga, a traditional form of Japanese painting, uses all the resources of this delicate aesthetic language to express her poetry and translate her perceptive, emotional experience of nature. Nihonga is a technique that originated in China during the Tang dynasty and had such an influence on Japanese art that, after numerous Japanese innovations in the 16th and 17th centuries, it became a traditional art form. Mastering this technique requires many years of practice and exceptional expertise in using natural pigments, mother-of-pearl, and gold and silver leaf. Since 2007, CHEN Yiching has lived and worked in Paris (France), where she runs Nihonga workshops at the Guimet Museum (Musée National des Arts Asiatiques-Guimet).

  • Meltdown Bench, 5-Seater Blue by Tom Price, Contemporary
    By Tom Price
    Located in PARIS, FR
    'Meltdown Bench, 5-seater Blue' is a piece by English artist Tom Price, from the Meltdown Series. Unlimited edition. Available on commission only. This bench is made entirely from polypropylene rope, no other material is added. The artist starts its creation by rolling up the rope around a ball – which is later removed, and then he presses a part of the rope ball on a heated metal seat-shaper former. The rope melts and, when it cools and subsequently hardens, the shape of the seat is created. Tom Price thus alters the structural and aesthetic qualities of the plastic material, giving rise to interesting contrasts in texture and form within the same object. Launched in 2007, the Meltdown Series earned Tom Price widespread international acclaim for his innovative production processes and eye-catching approach to working with commonplace plastic products. The way of assembling the plastic material and the mostly unpredictable patterns created by the heating method ensure that every piece is unique and unrepeatable. This design pieces are true sculptural objects, while at the same time being fully functional and very robust. Meltdown Chairs are included in the permanent collections of several Museums, including SFMOMA San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (US), the Denver Art Museum (US), The Nelson Atkins Museum (US), Chatsworth House (UK), MKG Hamburg (Germany) and the Amore Pacific Museum (South Korea). Works from the Meltdown Series have been exhibited extensively throughout the USA, South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. They have been included in many high-profile museum exhibitions, including SFMOMA San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (US), MAD Museum of Art and Design New York (US); The Mint Museum (US); Denver Art Museum (US); Design Museum Holon (Israel); Design Museum Gent (Belgium); NRW Forum Dusseldorf (Germany); The Latvian National Museum of Art in Riga (Latvia). They have also featured at international art and design fairs, including Design Miami Basel (Switzerland); Sao Paolo Design Festival (Brazil); Cheongju International Craft Biennale (South Korea), Design Days Dubai (United Arab Emirates); Gwangju Biennale (South Korea) and Lodz International Design Biennale (Poland). Finally, the series has been featured in multiple publications, including: The Campaign for Art...

  • Meltdown Chair, Bronze #2 by Tom Price, Contemporary, Limited Edition
    By Tom Price
    Located in PARIS, FR
    Meltdown Chair, Bronze #2 is a piece by English artist Tom Price, from the Meltdown Series. This chair is created using a ‘lost-plastic’ casting technique: a chair made from polypropylene tubes is encased in a thick ceramic shell and then melted out. The artist then pours molten bronze into the empty space that has formed and, once the metal has cooled and hardened, the ceramic shell is broken away. A work on the surface follows: the underside is left raw and patinated black while the seat is polished until it acquires a bright mirror finish. Every chair in the edition is unique because the ceramic mould must be broken to release the bronze, and therefore the entire process must be repeated for every new edition. Launched in 2007, the Meltdown Series earned Tom Price widespread international acclaim for his innovative production processes and eye-catching approach to working with commonplace plastic products. The way of assembling the plastic material and the mostly unpredictable patterns created by the heating method ensure that every piece is unique and unrepeatable.
