From May 10 to May 31, the Confucius Institute Foundation (c. Elisabets, 10) is holding the exhibition “Recuerdos rescatados” by the artist Wang Lu (Beijing, 1989). It gathers all his memories from his child and teenage years, which go through a reconstruction and restoration materials of the past to the present, with an evocative poetry. Co-organized by the Institute and the Vice-rector’s Office for Outreach and Internationalization of the UB, the exhibition will open on May 10, at 7 p.m. Entrance is free but there is limited capacity. Registration via this link is required.

Many writers and painters found their source of inspiration in their memories. One of the most known among them is Salvador Dalí. “Wan Lu’s paintings, without being completely surrealist, get close to surrealism, with some naïve traits”, says the commissioner of the exhibition and lecturer of Fine Arts at the UB, Domènec Corbella. The intimist-like exhibition, has eight 50 x 50 oil paintings and a series of 30 x 30 blue drawings, in which Wang Lu takes back a series of architectural constructions, objects, toys, places and details from the past, which have a great aesthetical, simple and modest strength, which turn him into one of the most interesting emerging artist in the Chinese scene.

Wang Lu graduated in the Faculty of Design and Arts of the Beijing Institute of Graphic Communication in 2011, and since then, he has worked on paintings exclusively. He has exhibited his works individually in the Aussino Residence in Guangzhou in 2016 and did so collectively in the prestigious Feefan’s Art Gallery in Beijing. This is the first time his works are exhibited in a western country.
