15. Entre ciel et terre
Green card given to Wang Xiangrong
published at 07/11/2017
In his garden, Wang Xiangrong creates a “misty landscape”, which is a reference to the archetypal Chinese garden, developing a feeling of “misty poetry” and serenity.
Red-coloured pavilions, earth and water, blue sky and white clouds form constants, made use of by this very contemporary garden.
