About

Regression, part of Le French May arts festival 2015 in Hong Kong, is a solo project by French multi-disciplinary artist Valéry Grancher. Both a staging and an experience of the jungle, the project comprises an exhibition of watercolour paintings, installation and  video works, and a site-specific performance on Lamma Island.

The Regression project presented in Hong Kong continues ‘The Shiwiars Project’, initiated a decade ago by Valéry Grancher’s decision to live in Amazonia for a month immersed with the Shiwiar tribe. After his expedition, Valéry Grancher created a series of watercolour paintings using drops of dew he had collected in the Amazon rainforest. They are presented for the first time to the public in the Regression exhibition, which plays ironically with a multitude of clichés.

Willing to complement the exhibition with a sensory and aesthetical experience of the forest, and to connect Hong Kong and the Amazon jungle, the artist will accompany a group through a walk on Lamma Island, with sporadic encounters of performers along the way. The Lamma Island performance is an open and collaborative work based on cross-disciplinary exchanges. It was created thanks to the inspiring participations of Lalie Choffel, Caroline Ha Thuc, Cédric Maridet and Alice Rensy.
