Exhibition winner ABN AMRO Art Prize

Evelyn Taocheng Wang is the ninth winner of the ABN AMRO Art Prize. The prize includes an exhibition in the Hermitage Amsterdam.

The title of her exhibition –  Het bloemblaadje, dat tijdens het ochtendkrieken was gevallen, paktte ik op in de avondschemering – has a purposefully included typo and is a quote she translated from a book by Chinese writer Lu Xun (1881-1936) about his childhood home, a source of memories to him.

Evelyn Wang’s exhibition shows how language and architecture are interwoven with one’s identity. She acquired Dutch citizenship in 2019, which is why her ‘new’ identity and Dutch culture are important themes in the exhibition.

Wang has made eight new paintings and a series of drawings and paintings on rice paper as part of the ABN AMRO Art Prize, including one drawing of more than seven meters long. Central are the customs and practices in Dutch culture, symbolized by Wang, among other things, by oliebollen. Attention is also paid to the conflict in adopting a new identity as an immigrant.

On display until Sunday 22 August 2021 | Entrance with a ticket for Tsars & Knights and All-in ticket.
