Tale of the 11th Day

Yang Jiechang

Marais Space

Following Yang Jiechang’s solo exhibition On Ascension in 2008, the Gallery Jaeger Bucher / Jeanne-Bucher is pleased to present a two-part exhibition by the artist entitled Tale of the 11th Day. In the Galerie Jeanne-Bucher, on the Left Bank, the show features a selection of painting from the series 100 Layers of Ink. The new space of the Galerie Jaeger Bucher, on the Right Bank, shows the series Stranger than Paradise. By imagining a 10th Day for Boccaccio’s Decameron, Yang Jiechang has fundamentally gone back to the great Confucian scholars who thought their own ideals more important than any political system. He immerses us in a Paradise where all nature’s creations seem to live together in peace.
