The exhibition presents paintings from the last 2 years that deal with perceptions of everyday personal experiences in China and Germany. The search for identity and a place to call home, within the expansive “canvas” of two cultures, appear again and again, especially in Qi Yang’s artistic work. His experiences, also of making his home in Western Europe, the processing of these issues within the context of a new era, and the ideological changes in China and Germany are aptly and expressively displayed in his art. Two cultures, two languages and two mentalities pulsate in the work of Qi Yang, a Chinese artist resident in Dusseldorf. His art has a particular weltanschauung: he contrasts the “multi-culture” that is thus developed with his own culture.
