Mont Sainte-Victoire is a mountain located in the south of France, which artist Paul Ceznne could have a full view from his studio. During Ceznne's lifetime, he had painted dozens of paintings for this mountain. Li Ran uses the mountain's name as the exhibition title, trying to build his own access to the modernist aesthetics, whilst re-view the fragmental experiences grounded in our own history. Li Ran compiled a four-play statement, which are: Reflection of Images and Scenes, Gaze, Competition and Come Across. There will be a live performance from the artist who mimicks the voices of 1970s- 1980s’ Chinese dubbed movies at the exhibition opening.
Kirkgaard:“Repetition and recollection are the same movement, only in opposite directions; for what is recollected is repeated backwards, whereas genuine repetition is recollected forwards.”
