Six Months of Sour Gnossiennes
Evelyn Taocheng Wang
Published by Städtisches Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach, 2020, 142 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 16 × 23 cm, English
Price: €20

Produced on the occasion of Evelyn Taocheng Wang’s residency and subsequent exhibition Sour Gnossiennes at the Städtisches Museum Abteiberg, 23 August–25 October, 2020.

During her six-month stay in Mönchengladbach, the artist developed a new body of work that consists of a series of drawings. The exhibition title refers to the small, poetic piano pieces by the French composer Erik Satie (1866–1925). Their melancholic mood reminds Evelyn Taocheng Wang of people quietly waiting for their bus on a grey and rainy day.
