Wonderful to hear Zhang Huan interviewed by Phillip Dodd and to see his new show at PACE London. At the end of the interview Zhang Huan asked us all to close our eyes and he performed a Buddhist chant. An extraordinary moment.

My question for Zhang Huan is at 33:30. His chanting is at 42:30.
I saw a version of the Poppy Fields show at Pace in New York a few months ago and it’s great that London gets a chance to see this latest body of work by one of China’s greatest living artists.
We first acquired works by Zhang Huan on a visit to Shanghai in 2007.
