M97 at Paris Photo 2019 - Booth A36
For the 2019 edition of Paris Photo, M97 is pleased to present a selection of new works by Chinese artists Wang Ningde (b. 1972), Cai Dongdong (b. 1978) and Sun Yanchu (b. 1978), as well as unique and important works by Adou (b. 1973), Gao Bo (b. 1964), and Pierre Bessard (b. 1960). Wang Ningde’s two new series “Infinite Fill” and “Reversal” are further conceptual explorations in the photographic realm after his highly praised series “Form of Light”, making their debut show outside of China. Also never-before exhibited in Europe, unique works from Sun Yanchu’s two most recent bodies of work “Ficciones” and “Developer Paintings” are also on view. Iconic works by Beijing-based artist Cai Dongdong are based on found anonymous photographs from 20th century China, where the artist reappropriates the original imagery into a more complex assemblage of history, memory, as well as social and political interpretation. Additional highlights include never before exhibited unique collage works from North Korea from the 1990’s by acclaimed Parisian photographer and book publisher Pierre Bessard. Also on view is a selection of unique photographs by Paris-based Chinese artist Gao Bo from his "Tibet" series, which was exhibited at the MEP Museum in Paris in 2017.
