Huang Yong Ping’s monumental sculptures often feature the animal kingdom in confrontation with man, reworking Western philosophies and myths, whose paradoxes and tensions he highlights.

Following the spectacular Serpent d’océan, a 128-metre-long skeleton that emerges from the waters on the beach of Saint-Brévin-les-Pins, Huang Yong Ping designed the slough of this chimerical serpent on the occasion of his exhibition Les Mues at HAB Galerie, Nantes (27 June–2 November 2014).

Huang Yong Ping’s career is recounted in an interview between Jean-Hubert Martin, the first curator to have shown the work of Huang Yong Ping in France (Magiciens de la terre, 1989) and David Moinard, curator of the Nantes exhibition.

“One of the most imposing pieces in the exhibition is Banque de sable, sable de banque, a replica of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank in Shanghai, which seems to sway on its foundations. All types of power are food for thought for Huang Yong Ping.”
– Jean-Hubert Martin, extract from the interview
