In the context of the French May Festival in Hong-Kong, members of Inalco-Alumni group will have the pleasure to enjoy a private visit of "Steles" Exhibition with Caroline Bouquet, a tribute to French writer Victor Segalen (1878-1919) and his poetry work ‘Steles’.
Victor Segalen's famous travel writings gave a direct expression of his vision, belief and aspirations.
He traveled extensively throughout Polynesia and China. Segalen wrote novels, as well as travelogs, collections of poetry, essays, plays, and much correspondence. Taken together, his work is understood to be among the more significant expressions of an early modern sensibility.
The French School of Hong Kong was named after him.
Caroline Bouquet studied Fine Arts in Versailles and History in La Sorbonne, Paris.
As a painter and print-maker, her work focuses on Segalen’s poems about the mileage stones encountered on his journeys in China and Asia.
Appropriating the explorer’s travels Bouquet translates them into collage and elegant visual artwork.
Nockart Gallery is proud to present a series of paintings and engravings by the French artist Caroline Bouquet. The artist’s interpretation of Segalen’s poetry book ‘Steles’ will give the audience a contemporary dialogue between the real and imaginary world.
