"Récit" presents a series of Cazeneuve's recent works, the fruit of his research on possible narrations between Chinese lacquer and other materials, its complicit links with the environment, nature, and the lacquer harvesters in China.
The artist has been living in southwest China for more than ten years in order to discover the secret of Chinese lacquer. His work is nourished by Western and Eastern influences, composite materials, and mixed techniques forming a series of intertwined stories.

In preparation for this exhibition, the artist has traveled to Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province to visit Mr. Baishi Fuji and Mr. Jiwu Wuqie, two Yi lacquer craftsmen, to learn more about the local traditional lacquer craftsmanship, especially the Yi lacquer armor and lacquer bowls. The lacquer searching trip brought new inspiration to Cazeneuve, who has incorporated this cultural heritage in two of his latest creations in this exhibition. 文森漆 Wensen QI | 无题 Untitled | 2021 | 大漆，凉山彝族水牛皮盔甲（制作者：白石夫机），石墨，金箔，铁粉 Chinese lacquer, ritual armor made of water buffalo skin from Yi people (Da Liang Mountain, Sichuan) by Mr. Baishi, graphite, gold leaves, iron powder | 70 x 34 cm
The artist applied varied materials to his lacquer creations in a unique abstract narrative: from gold leaf, graphite, to rice sacks and woven bamboos, highlighting regional cultural influences in his complex yet deceptively simple language. Through Cazeneuve's bold contemporary lacquer creations, viewers will experience the imprint of Chinese and French culture, as well as the deep forest where the artist's inspiration comes from - the forest where the lacquer man lives.

After completing his studies in France, he created a studio specializing in the restoration of Western and Asian lacquerware before moving to Chongqing, China, in 2009 to decipher the secret of lacquer and traditional Chinese culture artisanal techniques associated with his work.
文森·漆用看似简约实则繁复的艺术语言对东西方文化兼容并蓄，不懈探索将其他材料融入大漆创作的可能性，如旧米袋、麻绳、竹子、皮革等。同时，他还尝试汲取版画、浮雕、拼贴等其他艺术形式，以及梭织、竹编等传统工艺，使其作品拥有丰富的层次和触感。He gradually developed his narratives and aesthetics from both occidental and oriental influences with his deceptively simple and yet complex language while relentlessly exploring non-traditional supports such as old rice bags, jute ropes, bamboo, and leather. He also tries to draw on other art forms such as lithography, relief carving, collage, and traditional crafts such as cloth and bamboo weaving, lending his work rich layers and tactile feelings.文森·漆的作品曾在国内外艺术机构广泛展出，其中包括北京清华大学美术学院(2020)，云南省博物馆(2019)，四川美术学院美术馆(2019)，法国巴黎中国文化中心(2017)，法国勒韦艺术与工艺学院(Revel IMARA，2013)，上海当代艺术双年展(2010)等。同时，文森的作品已被纳入法国、意大利、美国、瑞士和中国等地的私人收藏。Vincent Cazeneuve’s work has been widely exhibited in art institutions in China and abroad, including the Academy of Arts and Design of Tsinghua University, Beijing (2020), Yunnan Provincial Museum (2019), Art Museum of Sichuan Fine Arts Institute (2019), Chinese Cultural Center, Paris, France (2017), Revel IMARA, France (2013), Shanghai Biennale of Contemporary Art ( 2010), etc. Meanwhile, his work has been included in private collections in France, Italy, the United States, Switzerland, and China.
