The career of artists such as Fabienne Verdier illustrate the extent to which Chinese art in general, and especially calligraphy, can provide a path to abstraction for Western artists. With that in mind, Silvère Jarrosson decided to spend a month in residence in China. He notably worked on the notion of figural design and possible reading of his work as abstract landscapes.

Villa Jean-Denis Attiret in Canton / Guangzhou to host him, together with other—mostly local—artists, with the stay made possible by Vanities Gallery.

The work produced during the residence was on display at the Guangzhou Sixth Contemporary Art Triennale at the Guangzhou Museum of Art, in December 2018.
