He writes the curator "Their "doing" equates to a life cycle that in nature can It is interpreted as flower opening at sunrise and closes in the evening to return to open the following morning. In its way, reaching a dizzying height, Charles Baudelaire made a similar tribute through its magnificent and famous poem Les fleurs du mal.

On display at the MA-EC will be exhibited 40 works, paintings on canvas, paintings on porcelain, sculptures, made by the two artists between 2013 and 2016. impactful Works carrying the viewer in a rarefied atmosphere, indefinable, timeless.

Emphasize Professor Bellini:dialogo con Chunmeng – grazie alla quale ho potuto scoprire Xu Gengliang e Zhang Lanqian – in merito all’arte loro. L’arte unica e irripetibile di questi artisti. Concordiamo in merito al loro riferimento magicamente paradossale con la vita della natura e con la bellezza del mondo sensibile. Troppe bellezze possono tradursi in “fiori del male” se si coglie d’esse – come manifestano i lavori che stiamo esaminando – la sfida lanciata proprio dall’arte all’era attuale, affinché l’umanità, affinché il mondo intero torni ad amare la realtà incontaminata e a rispettarne i cicli vitali e le bellissime loro fioriture. Vanno dunque recitando attraverso le loro opere questi artisti: tutti gli uomini, ognuno a suo modo, esaltati dal profumo dei fiori di Baudelaire, sentiranno nuovamente il bisogno – invocato da Breton – di risalire sino alle sorgenti il fiume magico che scorre dai loro occhi, bagnando della stessa luce e della stessa ombra le cose che sono e le cose che non sono. Seguendoli, accogliendo il loro operato e seguendoli verso questa ascesa anche noi potremo aprire i nostri occhi su questa visione, potremo sperimentare in noi stessi l’ebrezza di guadagnare le sorgenti del fiume magico che scorre dai nostri stessi occhi. Non è forse questo il più bell’omaggio a Baudelaire e agli artisti e i poeti che dopo di lui hanno intrecciato i loro destini?
