HATJE CANTZ

Yan Pei-Ming: Un enterrement à Shanghai

Text by Laurence des Cars.

An unprecedented artist’s book whose pages can be assembled into one monumental painting: Yan Pei-Ming's homage to Courbet

The first place that the 21-year-old Chinese painter Yan Pei-Ming (born 1960) visited on a 1980 trip to France was Ornans, the birthplace of the French realist Gustave Courbet. Thirty-nine years later, Pei-Ming takes the 200th anniversary of the birth of his hero as an opportunity to demonstrate his immense admiration for Courbet and his masterpiece, Burial in Ornans.

Yan Pei-Ming transforms and translates this scene into a contemporary Burial in Shanghai, the city where he grew up, and where his mother is buried. This unique artist’s book represents this undertaking in 290 divisible fragments. Pei-Ming intends that one can disassemble the book, assemble its fragments and form the painting in its original size, which is more than 20 feet wide and 10 feet high.
