Huang Yong Ping – Bâton Serpent at MAXXI

Showing for the first time in Italy, a challenge to the traditional visual languages of art, ready to express tensions and break down the myths and utopias of contemporary era, for the first time in Italy Huang Yong Ping is showing installations of monumental size, several sculptures and a wealth of documentation to complement the works on display.

The title of an exposition so eschatological refers to the famous Bible passage telling the miracle in which a rod is turned into a serpent. The entire show is designed as an exodus, a migration of power and knowledge, and a process of liberation and emancipation from our conventional social and cultural values.

After founded one of the most important Chinese artistic avant-garde movements, the artist brings into question the rationalist and anthropocentric hegemony of a humanity that has become increasingly detached from its origins. Bâton Serpent examines include the effects of globalisation, cultural negotiations, migration, neo-colonialism, religious conflicts, economic change, and political fundamentalism.

The artist analyses the contemporary geopolitical situation through a complex and ambivalent dialectic that illustrates the interweaving of historical, cultural and political powers. At the same time it proposes a new force, in the form of dialogue between religions and cultures. The visionary nature of the works is intensified by interaction with the spaces of the museum and the exhibition consists of three sections, corresponding to three spaces of the museum.
