Boris Chouvellon & Mengzhi Zhen have a new exposition in the Merchant House named Making Things Happen: Young Artists in Dialogue III. With this collaboration the Making Things Happen expositions come to an end. It is the third collaboration of young French artists that share geography, art education, and attitude to their craft.

More about Making Things Happen with Boris Chouvellon & Mengzhi Zheng

During this edition of Making Things Happen, the artwork is surprisingly literal and disruptive. Both artists work is sculptural but blurs the distinction between image and construct. Both artists work with urban references and impulses that we all have as an urbanized species. The exposition has an interesting layout that challenges its visitors. Is there a connection and if so, how do all the sculptures connect?
