Wings of desire: Mexico in China

This museum with a purely futurist design welcomes the winged performance of the Mexican sculptor Jorge Marin this spring.

Who has never dreamed of being an angel, stretching out vast wings, and flying away? How do you imagine an angel? Jorge Marin is a Mexican sculptor who has given each of his bronze sculptures a pair of wings for a decade now. Often masked, the faces hidden, his sculptures are captured in equilibrium, as if on a thread…

In this exhibition, the wings, shorn from the bodies, have landed in a garden on their own. Visitors can act as if they carry them, they can film them, or they can take a picture standing as if the wings are on their own backs—a performance of its own, this new experience lets humans become angels and a dream become reality.
