Check out 12 renowned European artists’ takes on the 12 Chinese zodiac animals. Mazel Galerie’s first foray into Asia inspired them to create an Asian-themed exhibition titled “The Great Race”, held from April 20 to June 30, 2018. In Chinese mythology, the Jade Emperor is said to have hosted what became known as “The Great Race” to decide the order of the Chinese zodiac.
More than 40 diverse works will be on show, including a metallic sculpture of a rat covered with Parisian street dust, a spray painting of a rabbit, a mixed media on canvas of a life-sized tiger, and an oil on canvas which showcases the dragon and the goat.
For the fun of it, the gallery scheduled the “animals” to arrive in the right zodiac order, starting with French artist Lionel Sabatté’s dust-covered rat first, followed closely by his concrete-made ox, and ending with the pig, painted in different forms by renowned French painter Vincent Corpet.
This unique East-meets-West exhibition is a must-visit if you love a delightfully refreshing twist on European art.
