CEAC exhibition

About herself, about her own life in a foreign landscape, about being exposed and vulnerable, about watching and being watched. Walls symbolise exactly what has been a part of Fu Yang’s everyday struggles and experiences: exclusion, segregation and isolation.

When you enter the exhibition room, you discover that there is not a single picture of The Great Wall to see; the title is only used as a symbol, which is known by everybody. More than that, the name Fu Yang is too, only a symbol, and the real person behind this pseudo name is Galina Manikova. She is a real cosmopolitan person, born on an earlier Japanese island of Sakhalin, grown up in Moscow, educated at an art academy in Jerusalem and presently living in Norway. More about her life and work can be studied on her web site:
