during his two-month residency in the city, Brechignac's innovative use of pine pollen offers a fresh perspective on Beijing's spring scenery.

The exhibition's opening on June 14 saw the presence of Guillaume Roy, the consul general of the French embassy in China, alongside Art 8 founder Christine Cayol, joining Brechignac in revealing the artist's transformative creations that blur the boundaries between the natural and the artificial.

Hailing from Provence and now based in Paris, Brechignac's interdisciplinary artistry draws inspiration from nature's wonders, weaving a mesmerizing narrative that challenges conventional perceptions. His residency in Beijing, initiated by the Yishu 8 France Young Artist Award in 2023, led him to explore the abundant pine trees of the city, inspiring his symbolic use of pine pollen as a creative "bridge".

During his residency, Brechignac meticulously crafted three large paintings representing each month from April to June 2024, in addition to four smaller works and two sculptures, Pine Candelabrum and Pollen Armillary Sphere, all utilizing magnified pine pollen shapes.

Cayol, deeply moved by Brechignac's process, praised his ability to merge nature with artistry, creating astonishing effects that resonate with life's mysteries.
