About the artwork

Laurent Dequick once again moves away from the traditional representation that we have of landscapes around us in order to present a highly poetic vision. As an eye-witness of the contemporary city, he knows its slightest fluctuations and it is on his escapades around the world that he captures many of the monuments, settings, and sites that have been the undisputed witnesses of history and of the radiating influence of the countries he traverses. He has always been passionate about combining techniques and his photography is the fruit of an inseparable encounter between photography and painting. This image is taken from his series produced in 2017 on the city of Beijing. Laurent Dequick captures one of the most emblematic contemporary monuments of the Chinese capital, the National Centre for the Performing Arts that is commonly known as the Beijing Opera, or locally as The Egg. Inaugurated in 2007 after six years of works, its creation was entrusted to the famous French architect Paul Andreu, whose design foresaw a titanium and glass dome in the form of an ellipse, evoking the traditional yin and yang motif.
