The EMG gallery in the Redtory will present French artist Stem's modern oil painting exhibition, titled "Discovering Culinary 'Censorism' in China", from April 19 for two months. Stem guides the visitors through contemporary creations that explore flavours and culinary aesthetics, making a marvelous sensory voyage of China.
Over 20 pieces will be on display and presented in accordance with the formalities of a traditional French meal. In addition to the items featuring visual dishes on canvass, some of the artworks are painted with red wine from eight of Bordeaux's wine-growing regions including Médoc and Pomerol.
"Censorism", which comes from the Latin word "censor" meaning "rule", is a brand new concept of art created by Stem. According to Stem, "censorism" means "something that makes sense" because the artist wants his work to be abstract yet accessible to everyone.
The idea of a culinary gallery devoted to censorism has existed in Stem's mind since the beginning of 2009, born from a simple desire for an exchange between cook and spectator.
After Bordeaux, Paris, Boston and Tokyo, Stem wants to introduce his original concept to China in order to prompt visitors to take a fresh look at modern art that accessible to all, despite linguistic or cultural barriers.
