Beaubourg - Delhi: La Mission
We crossed Eurasia artistically with the exhibition “Beaubourg - Delhi: La Mission”. In 2016, Adalbert Khan left for a missionary journey in the name of contemporary French art. In each photo there is a reference to a contemporary French artist or art institution that he has hijacked in order to talk about a subject linked to the country he is crossing.
"In that sense, AK is akin to a Pierre et Gilles engaged in making a documentary. Or to a David Lachapelle meeting, but meeting for real, Depardon. Or to a Jeff Koons, leaving his workshops behind to remember his fantastic craftsmanship and getting down to work in the secrecy of a holy temple in India."
