Galerie Dumonteil Shanghai is pleased to present “A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever”, the solo exhibition of Tess Dumon, marking this brilliant French emerging artist's debut in China. The exhibition features most of the artist’s recent creations including a dozen gouache paintings and several monumental sculptures, most of which were made during her residency in Shanghai. “A Thing of Beauty Is a Joy Forever” originates from John Keat’s long poem “Endymion”, in which he describes that something beautiful will give pleasure long after it ceases to exist. The exhibition encourages the viewers to embrace all the lovely tales in our lives and throughout history and search for the universal in the particular, the endurable in the ephemeral, from beliefs and legends that survive thousands of years to emotions and relationships that last beyond the limit of time.
