"Ognuno ha una memoria del luogo dal quale proviene. La memoria include esperienze personali e il tempo da cui nessuno può scappare" Chen Shaoxiong
Chen Shaoxiong (1962, Guangdong), partendo da una tecnica tradizionale cinese, l’inchiostro su carta, sviluppa una rielaborazione in chiave contemporanea della tradizione. Le grandi tele della serie “Collective Memory” sono infatti dipinte a inchiostro per mezzo di impronte digitali.
