Alan S. K. Chan - L'Affranchissement

L’Affranchissement, meaning “The liberation of mind, of thought…”. In this exhibition, Alan Sik Kyin Chan, an artist based in Paris, will present 40 of his recent works which are mostly inspired by the images that can be seen in every day’s life. These images have emerged in forms of an aesthetic phenomenon, referring to both perceptual aspects and spiritual metaphors. Having nurtured by multicultural influences, Chan does realize that as an artist, to see the world afresh one must free his mind from the shackles of cultural prejudice ( e.g. the insistence that an absence of poetic conception is definitely a conspicuous defect, or thinking that the lack of understanding of Zen would be in any case an ignorance ). In practice, this has been reflected in Chan’s work. As for this issue, the exhibition has thus arranged to show a distinctive series of paintings in which the idea of L’Affranchissement has been experienced through Gestalt disposition, or by minimizing the value of artistic conceptions that have burdened most of the contemporary artists for decades, especially those from Oriental cultural backgrounds.
