Sin Sin Fine Art is delighted to present ‘Roots’, a duet exhibition featuring the works from Hong Kong artist,
Lee Man Sang and Chongqing-based French artist, Wensen Qi (Vincent Cazeneuve). An inner dialogue with
roots, values & identity.
The distinctive journey of the nomadic duo inspired the exhibition title — ‘Roots’:
The lacquer master, Wensen Qi represents the “uprooted”, leaving his hometown in France and moved to
China to decipher the secrets of lacquer.
Lee Man Sang, a quiet wanderer who return to his roots after 15 years, alienated from the cityscape and
devoting in his creation at a tranquil village in Hong Kong.
Both artists’ surreal displacements in the dynamic cities symbolises the sense of magical realism, their
artworks become part of the fabric of normalcy, interspersed throughout everyday real life.
The artists challenges the definition of ‘roots’. Roots are not born of nature but made and crafted by the
human mind. It is shaped by the values, principles and core spirituality that make us who we are.
