Pham Ngoc Duong / Xu Yihui / Zhang Tingqun at Avanthay Contemporary

We are delighted to invite you to the opening of our upcoming exhibition with three artists from Asia on

Friday, August 24th 2007, from 18–21h

In his energetic works on canvas, the Vietnamese artist Pham Ngoc Duong (1976) focusses on human faces in close vision, leading us almost ‘under the skin’ of the persons portrayed.

The young Sichuan painter Zhang Tingqun (1981) questions the collision between China and the West, and looks at how development, although progressive, does not necessarily replace tradition.

With his porcelain sculptures, the Chinese artist Xu Yihui (1964) intriguingly reacts to new lifestyles in China, brought about by the arrival of globalized consumer culture.

We look forward to welcoming you at the gallery.

With kind regards,
