PRESS RELEASE/ COMMUNIQUE DE PRESSE
For this year’s edition of Art Paris, ifa gallery has thought up an exhibition of graphic aspects. The visitor can escape
into a parallel universe in which lines cavort, structures slot into one another, and colours frolic freely.
Three young Korean artists exhibit subtle, conscious pieces. Ju Young Ban (1978), a Brooklyn Pratt Institute
graduate in painting (New-York), constructs structured and celestial forms. The meticulously sewn pieces of
Yulim Song (1983) seem to suspend time. Jinhwa Jung (1986) paints outside of conventions and classic forms.
The de-structuring of their painted subjects result in a daring new compositional approach.
Among the artists working in China, an emblematic figure of the avant-garde, Chinese artist Dai Guangyu
(China, 1955) brings together contemporary art and ancestral tradition. Lithuanian artist Zane Mellupe (Latvia,
1981) conceives her art regrouping installations and photography in mixed technique, an approach of “thinking in
imagery”. Internationally acclaimed, the work of the Gao Brothers (China, 1956 and 1962) has over two decades
questioned the place of humans within society, using the specific case of China whilst producing a universal
understanding. Li Chevalier’s (China, 1961) experimental ink painting style can be identified by her personal way
of incorporating Chinese ink into canvas, blended with pigment, mineral chips, sand and elements of Chinese art
such as rice paper and calligraphy.
Pour cette nouvelle édition à Art Paris, ifa gallery a imaginé une exposition aux dimensions graphiques. Le visiteur
s’évade vers un univers parallèle où les lignes dansent, les structures s’emboitent et les couleurs fleurtent avec
légerté.
Trois jeunes artistes coréens exposent une oeuvre essentiellement maîtrisée et sensible. Junyon Ban (1978),
diplômée en peinture à l’institut de Pratt à Brooklyn, construit des formes structurées et célestes. Les oeuvres
méticuleuses et cousues d’Yulim Song (1983) semblent suspendre le temps. Jinhwa Jung (1986) peint en dehors
des conventions et des formes classiques. La déstructure des sujets peints conduit à de nouvelles compositions
audacieuses.
Du côté de la Chine, Dai Guangyu (Chine, 1955), figure de proue de l’avant-garde chinoise, allie art contemporain et
traditionnel. Zane Mellupe (Lettonie, 1981) conçoit son art regroupant installations et photographies en techniques
mixtes, comme une manière de « penser en images ». Les Gao Brothers (Chine, 1956 et 1962), renommés
internationalement, questionnent la place de l’homme dans la société, partant de l’exemple Chinois pour arriver
à une compréhension universelle. La peinture de Li Chevalier (Chine, 1961) expérimente la relation de l’encre de

BIOGRAPHY
Zane Mellupe is an artist and Sinologist from Latvia who works on photography since the age of fourteen.
She studied Sinology at the University of Latvia before following Theatre Direction studies in Shanghai Theatre
Academy and completing her Bachelor Degree in Shanghai Teachers University (Bachelor of Arts in Chinese
Language & Literature, 2004). Back in Europe in 2005, Mellupe pursued her education in the London (Master of
Arts in Photojournalism & Documentary Photography, University of the Arts, 2007).
Her installations, or multi-medium photographic works, centre around the hidden interpretations of our emotions.
She employs the photographic medium as a tool that inspires her creative process. As such, her installations are
often composed of everyday objects with an added photographic element, the collision of two universes from
which arise new meanings.
Creative director of Island6 Arts Centre in Shanghai between 2007 and 2010 and founder of a community art
street, “Yongkang Lu Art” with several experimental spaces, her work has been exhibited in China and Europe in
different galleries and museums.
Zane Mellupe lives and works in Shanghai (China).
Zane Mellupe est une artiste et sinologue lettone qui dès l’âge de quatorze ans s’intéresse à la photographie. Elle
étudie la sinologie à l’Université de Lettonie avant de suivre des études de mise en scène à l’Académie de Théâtre
de Shanghai et de littérature chinoise à l’Université de Shanghai. De retour en Europe en 2005, l’artiste obtient un
master en photojournalisme et en photographie documentaire à l’Université des Arts de Londres.
Ses installations, ses photographies en techniques mixtes, révèlent des interprétations cachées de nos
sentiments. Zane Mellupe utilise le médium photographique comme un outil qui alimente son processus créatif.
Ses installations sont ainsi souvent composées d’objets du quotidien auxquels elle mêle la photographie, la
contraction des deux univers faisant jaillir une histoire.
Directrice artistique du Centre Island6 Arts de Shanghai entre 2007 et 2010 et fondatrice d’une communauté de
street art «Yongkang Lu Art » autour de plusieurs espaces expérimentaux, elle expose régulièrement à la fois en
Chine et en Europe dans divers galeries et musées. Depuis 2010, l’artiste est représentée par ifa gallery.
Zane Mellupe vit et travaille à Shanghai.

BIOGRAPHY
The Gao Brothers are two Beijing-based artist brothers. Over the past 20 years and since their internationally
prominent participation in the exhibition « China / Avant-Garde » in 1989 (National Gallery of Beijing), their art has
reached into various mediums including photography, video, painting, sculpture, performance, with them working
also as critical writers and even as exhibition curators. In their work can be seen a questioning of humanity and
fraternity remaining in contemporary reality. Marked by the death of their father under the Maoist regime, engaged
in demonstrations at Tiananmen Square (which cost them their passports for several years), the two brothers
share a critical attitude towards Chinese society.
Their works form part of the collections of the most important contemporary art museums, including: the China
National Museum, the MoMA New York, the Guggenheim Foundation, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art,
the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Centre Pompidou, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Kemper Museum
of Contemporary Art and the Princetown University Art Museum; as well as large private collections including
Steven Cohen, Uli Sigg, Charles Saatchi…
Gao Qiang and Gao Zhen live and work in Beijing, China.
Les Gao Brothers sont deux frères artistes basés à Pékin. Depuis 20 ans et leur participation internationalement
remarquée à l’exposition « China/Avant-Garde » de 1989 (Galerie Nationale de Pékin), leur art se déploie en
photographie, vidéo, théâtre, performance, peinture et sculpture, ainsi que des essais critiques et des commissariats
d’exposition. Ils y questionnent l’humanité et la fraternité restante dans notre monde contemporain. Marqués par
la disparition de leur père sous le régime maoïste, engagés lors des manifestations de la Place Tiananmen (ce qui
leur a valu leurs passeports à plusieurs reprises), les deux frères partagent une même approche critique vis-à-vis
de la société chinoise.
Leurs œuvres figurent dans les collections des plus importants musées d’art contemporain, tels que : Le Musée
National de China, le MoMA de New York, la Fondation Guggenheim, le Musée d’Art Moderne de San Francisco,
le Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, le Centre Pompidou, le Victoria and Albert Museum à Londres et d’autres
; ainsi que de larges collections privées comme celles de Steven Cohen, Uli Sigg, Charles Saatchi…
Gao Qiang et Gao Zhen vivent et travaillent à Pékin, Chine.

戴光郁 DAI GUANGYU
1955 CHENGDU, CHINA/ CHINE

BIOGRAPHY
From an early age, Dai Guangyu received a traditional values and education from his father. It is likely that Dai
Guangyu would have followed a traditional career path had he not found himself a part of the New Wave
Movement in 1985, which was a perfect fit for the development of his creative scope.
In the 90s, Dai Guangyu discovered performance, which employs the body as a key artistic medium. It was during
this time that he showed his penchant for ‘ink games’. Dai Guangyu is recognised as an important and original
figure of the Chinese artistic scene. His interdisciplinary practice is written within a socially engaged trajectory.
While traditional art is waning since the Cultural Revolution, Dai Guangyu tries to make sense of his roots with
contemporary art. Through his performances or paintings, he embodies and reinterprets symbols of Chinese
art – in particular calligraphy - to the limits of possibility while also exploring and addressing their disappearance in
contemporary society.
His works have been collected worldwide. He recently took part in exhibitions including “Coup de foudre chinois”,
at Montréal and Toronto Arsenal, «Voice of the Unseen” for a collateral event of the 55th Venice Biennale.
Dai Guangyu lives and works in Beijing (China).
Dès son plus jeune âge, Dai Guangyu est formé par son père qui lui transmet les valeurs de la culture traditionnelle
chinoise. Au début des années 80, il adhère au mouvement de la Nouvelle Vague en Chine et participe à l’exposition
de 1989 « China Avant-Garde » au Palais des Beaux-Arts de Pékin.
Dans les années 90, Dai Guangyu s’initie à l’art de la performance à travers lequel il conçoit le corps comme
médium principal. A la même époque, il s’intéresse à l’encre de Chine et crée la série ‘Ink Games’ (jeux d’encre).
Dai Guangyu est aujourd’hui reconnu comme un acteur important et original de la scène artistique chinoise.
Sa pratique multidisciplinaire s’inscrit dans une démarche engagée socialement. Alors que l’art traditionnel
tend à disparaître depuis la Révolution Culturelle, Dai Guangyu essaye d’en retrouver les racines au moyen
de l’art contemporain. Par ses performances ou ses peintures, il met en scène les symboles de la création
chinoise – en particulier la calligraphie - jusqu’aux limites de leur résistance ou de leur disparition dans la société
contemporaine.
Les œuvres de Dai Guangyu figurent dans nombre de collections internationales et parmi ses dernières
participations on peut noter les expositions « Coup de foudre chinois » à l’Arsenal de Toronto et Montréal ou «
Voice of the Unseen », un événement collatéral de le 55e Biennale de Venise.
Dai Guangyu vit et travaille à Pékin (Chine).

BIOGRAPHY
Ju Young Ban studied painting at Hong-ik University in Seoul and obtained her master degree in Painting at the
Pratt Institute in New York in 2006. Using drawing, painting and mixed media as the most fragile and delicate
gesture, she invents her own visual language. Ju Young Ban’s universe is strongly inspired by nature. The images
and shapes she creates represent the growth of living creatures as a natural phenomenon; and the process of
developing ideas she goes through comes from her own experiences. Her work stands as a constant search for
fundamental truth and beauty in life. Including 5 solo exhibitions between Korea and the United States, she has
been nationally and internationally exhibited along with her artistic contemporaries. In 2008, she did a residency
program at Vermont Studio Center.
Ju Young Ban lives et works in Il-San (South Korea).
Après avoir étudié à l’Université de Hongik à Séoul, Ju Young Ban obtient en 2006 un master en peinture à la
Pratt Institute à New-York. D’un geste souple et délicat, ses dessins, ses peintures et ses installations dévoilent
un langage visuel qui lui est propre. L’univers de Ju Young Ban est étroitement lié à la nature. Les formes et les
images représentent la naissance de nouvelles créatures qui rappellent des phénomènes naturels. Son travail
essentiellement inspiré dans son expérience personnelle, se présente comme une quête perpétuelle de la vérité
fondamentale et de la beauté de la vie. Exposée au niveau national et international, Ju Young Ban participe à
plusieurs expositions en solo entre la Corée et les Etats-Unis. En 2008, elle était en résidence au Vermont Studio
Center.
Ju Young Ban vit et travaille à Il-San (Corée du Sud).

BIOGRAPHY
Jinhwa Jung studied Oriental Painting at Chung-Ang University in Anseong (South Korea) and obtained his
master degree in 2013. Using traditional tools to depict his subjects, his painting style is off the wall and beyond
the classical forms. Using water as his main medium, Jinhwa Jung dilutes the ink stick – traditionally used for
writing and painting in Asia - and the drawing is revealed bold and without outlines. His deconstructed lines create
empty spaces that seem to be entrances for the light, which bring life to the artist’s characters. Free of borders,
he catches and translates daily life instants.
Jinhwa Jung lives and works in South Korea.
Jinhwa Jung obtient son master en peinture orientale à l’université Chung-Ang de Anseong (Corée du Sud) en
2013.
Entre outils traditionnels et sujets contemporains, il peint en dehors des conventions et des formes classiques.
Utilisant l’eau comme principal médium, Jinhwa Jung dilue le bâton d’encre de Chine-utilisé originellement pour
l’écriture et la peinture en Asie-et comme une aquarelle, son dessin apparaît, audacieux et sans délimitations
imposées. Sa peinture déstructurée laisse place à des zones vides qui semblent être une entrée pour la lumière
donnant ainsi vie aux personnages de l’artiste. C’est libre de toute frontière qu’il capture et traduit ainsi des
moments de vie, des instants du quotidien.
Jinhwa Jung vit et travaille en Corée du Sud.

BIOGRAPHY
Yulim Song studied painting at Hong-ik University and obtained her master degree in Art and Space at Kingston
University. Yulim Song makes installations using mainly silk and cotton thread. She embroiders alphabets and
images, usually on silk fabric, to tell her own stories. The colorful threads in translucent silk background within a
simple white frame create dreamlike atmosphere, in which the artist’s thoughts or memories seem to be floating
around. In opposition, the titles of such works are extremely descriptive about the intricate details of each piece.
Her early works mostly showed words or word-like images in monochromatic threads. However, her recent works
evoke more specific images or forms. These images and forms are emphasized by and against a background
of colorful threads. Including 3 solo exhibitions, she has been nationally and internationally exhibited along with
her artistic contemporaries. From 2010 to 2012, she joined the residency program by Kumho Museum in Korea.
More recently, she took the Lee Ungno Residence in Paris, France.
Yulim Song lives and works in South Korea.
Yulim Song étudie la peinture à l’université Hongik (Seoul, Corée du Sud) et poursuit son parcours à l’université
Kingston (Londres, Royaume-Unis) où l’artiste obtient un diplôme en “Art et Espace”. Contrairement à ces
premiers travaux aux fils monochromatiques qui évoquaient des mots, ces œuvres récentes représentent des
images et des formes spécifiques. Ses installations cousues de fils colorés et brodées sur de la soie ou du cotton,
racontent des histoires singulières et créent une atmosphère onirique, dans lequel les pensées et les souvenirs
de l’artiste semblent flotter. Inversement, les titres de ces œuvres s’éloignent de cet univers imaginaire, en
énonçant avec précision les détails complexes de chaqu’une des pièces. Yulim Song expose au niveau national
et international. En résidence entre 2010 à 2012 au musée de Kumho en Corée, récemment elle participa à une
résidence d’artistes au musée de Lee Ungno à Paris (France).
Yulim Song vit et travaille en Corée du Sud.

LI CHEVALIER
1961 BEJING, CHINA/ PEKIN, CHINE
TRANSCENDANCE 2014
ink on canvas, 150x70cm
BIOGRAPHY
Li Chevalier is a Chinese born French artist who graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design
(London).
Working at the crossroad of Europe and Asia for the past two decades, she is most known for her «Euro-Asian» art
language born out of blending western media and elements of eastern traditional art. Li Chevalier’s experimental
ink painting style can be identified by her personal way of incorporating Chinese ink into canvas, blended with
pigment, mineral chips, sand and elements of Chinese art such as rice paper and calligraphy. By using such
mixed media, she transcends the classical ink-on-paper model.
Four major retrospective exhibitions of Li Chevalier have been presented by the National Art Museum of China
(2010), the Today Art Museum in Beijing (2010), the Shanghai Art Museum (2011), the National Opera China
(2013) .Her work became part of the permanent collection of the National Art Museum of China and the National
Opera of China, as well as part of the French Embassy’s art collection. Her works appeared also in some major
international art fairs and exhibitions, such as the Art Salon of the French National Fine Art Society at Carrousel du
Louvre (2003), l’Art en Capital at the Grand Palais (2007,2011), London Art Fair (2007), Glasgow Art Fair (2008),
Northern Art Fair (2008), Shanghai Art Fair (2008), Beijing International Art Fair (2011), the Doha National Art Gallery
Al Bida.
Li Chevalier lives and works in her two art studios in Beijing and Paris.
Li Chevalier est une artiste franco-chinoise diplômée de Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design
(Londres).
Ayant évolué au croisement de l’Europe et de l’Asie durant les deux dernières décennies, elle est reconnue
pour son langage artistique euro-asiatique né de la rencontre des medias occidentaux et d’éléments de l’art
traditionnel oriental. Le style expérimental de sa peinture à l’encre de chine peut être identifié grâce à sa méthode
d’incorporation de l’encre sur la toile, mélangée à divers pigments, minéraux, sables et incorporant d’autres
éléments de l’art chinois tels que la feuille de riz et la calligraphie. En utilisant cette large diversité de mediums, elle

IFA GALLERY
ifa gallery is established by Alexis Kouzmine-Karavaïeff in 2006-2007 in a 700sqm converted textile factory
space in Moganshan Road – M50 Creative Centre – Shanghai’s contemporary art district. With a quality exhibition
programme of principally Chinese contemporary art, and a supporting line-up of performances the gallery
contributes to the dynamism of the area. Major exhibitions during that time include the solo shows of Park SungTae (Korea) and sought-after young artist Liu Bolin (China). From summer 2008 to summer 2013, ifa occupies a
charming residence built in 1923 for an official of the British Customs House, located in Shanghai at 621 Changde
Road (Jing’An district). The gallery offers an innovative and artistic angle to the central part of the city and acted as
an artistic meeting point for contemporary art in Shanghai.
Fall 2013, ifa gallery moves its premises to the heart and capital of Europe, Brussels. Located in the old central
district of Marolles, the gallery offers a dynamic programme with its main artists from China and new artists from
the region. At the meantime, a new exhibition space opens in March 2014 in the district of Jing’An in Shanghai,
where ifa gallery continues to showcase some local artists.
ifa gallery exhibits contemporary art from China and Beyond, regardless of artists origin. We represent both
established artists such as Dai Guangyu, a leading figure of China’s avant-garde, the Gao Brothers and Wu
Junyong; as well as emerging artists, including recent graduates of the fine arts schools in Beijing and Hangzhou
such as Fan Jiupeng and Li Rui, or foreigners based in China, such as Zane Mellupe from Latvia or Christophe
Demaître from Belgium.
ifa gallery a été créé par Alexis Kouzmine-Karavaïeff en 2006 à Shanghai, dans le quartier des galeries d’art
contemporain. En visitant assidûment les ateliers d’artistes, la galerie a travaillé à sélectionner les artistes les plus
promoteurs, ceux qui déployaient un langage et des moyens d’expression singuliers, loin des clichés et des
conventions, ceux qui offrent des visions artistiques et des concepts forts. Au fil des années, ifa gallery a organisé
de nombreuses expositions marquantes, toujours originales, montrant les œuvres d’un artiste sur une période
donnée ou organisant autour d’un commissariat réfléchi des expositions collectives. Plusieurs expositions
majeures ont ainsi été organisées notamment de l’artiste coréen Park Sung-Tae ou bien du jeune artiste chinois
aujourd’hui très recherché Liu Bolin. La galerie a acquis une reconnaissance internationale en participant
activement aux foires telles Art Basel Hong Kong, Art Paris, Art Stage Singapore ou encore Photo Shanghai.
En décembre 2013, ifa gallery a déménagé pour le cœur et la capitale de l’Europe, Bruxelles. Située dans le
quartier historique des Marolles, la galerie offre une programmation dynamique avec les principaux artistes qu’elle
a découverts en Chine ainsi que de nouveaux artistes de la région.
Nous représentons des artistes établis tels que Dai Guangyu, une figure de proue de l’avant-garde chinoise, les
Gao Brothers ou Wu Junyong ; mais aussi des artistes émergents tels que Fan Jiupeng et Li Rui, ou encore des
artistes étrangers basés en Chine tels que Christophe Demaître ou Zane Mellupe.
Dans sa volonté d’être un trait d’union entre l’Europe et la Chine, un nouvel espace d’exposition a ouvert en mars
2014 dans le quartier de Jing’An à Shanghai.
