“My mirrored glasses give the picture a neutral impact and a surrealistic quality I am looking for. I am an inquisitive traveler, a witness of my time, and an ambiguous ambassador.”
– Tseng Kwong Chi

Strictly dressed in a second-hand elegant jacket from the Mao era and hiding behind a pair of mirrored sunglasses, Tseng Kwong Chi (1950-1990) takes us on a world tour punctuated by the self-portraits he takes in front of famous monuments and breathtaking landscapes.
As a kind of bizarre and formal ambassador-explorer, the Chinese artist embarks on a journey of discovery of the Western world with intelligence and irony.
