Chinese Whispers - Chow Chun Fai Leung (2012)

Zentrum Paul Klee and the Museum of Fine Arts Bern have joined for an impressive exhibition of Chinese contemporary art: Chinese Whispers.

Chinese Whispers
Collector Uli Sigg has been following the development of this form of art since its early beginnings in the 1970’s, and his compilation can surely be named as the most significant of its kind in the world.

Chinese Whispers

The exhibit’s title refers to the game in which people whisper a message to one another, in the end misinterpreting it. There is a similarity in this game to the encounters of different cultures.

Around 150 recent works of the Sigg and M+ Sigg Collections include paintings, photography, interactive videos and some quite extraordinary art installations. Picture a tank made of leather that is also being used for making Hermes bags…
