Birdhead X Maison Margiela Fragrances
A tribute to analog photography
For this first collaboration with Maison Margiela Fragrance, Birdhead created an artwork using photocollage, a process that is central to their artistic creation. Under the red light of their studio's darkroom, the photographers developed photos taken during Chinese New Year that illustrate memories of this festive moment. The photos were then cut, and assembled together in a Birdhead signature photocollage. The character “Fu”, which means good fortune and happiness, has been painted on the top of the photocollage. The sense of interlaced time and space created by the juxtaposition of photocollage acts to deconstruct each picture, but also reorganize the original memory of the New Year.
Art consulting & Project Management
Invited by Somexing Art Agency to work on the project as an art consultant, I selected the artists with the agency according to Maison Margiela Fragrances' project requirements and acted as a direct liaison between the artists' studio, the client and the agency.
Contemporary China Through the Lens of Its Creative Scene
Over the last decade, China has become one of the central players in the global art world, attracting international attention thanks to its vivid and dynamic creative scene. The contemporary Chinese art scene is an effective barometer for observing the constant flux in society and the concerns and aspirations of the nation’s youth, it is therefore a must- watch for any professionals who want to understand better Chinese young generation and society or willing to develop projects related to its creative scene.
It is for this reason that we have established The Sinoscope, a thematic publication and conference developed for professionals involved in the art and luxury fields. Drawing upon our knowledge of Chinese culture and our expertise in art, we carefully select artists profiles and provide significant cultural insights.

Guided Art Tours
At Art Basel Hong Kong, I did guided art tours that focused on emerging Chinese Artists, especially the generation born between the beginning of the 70’s and the end of the 80’s.
Sharing Experience & Networks
Through a selection of favorite artworks, I gave to the participants a glimpse of the diversity of the emerging art scene and the market trend. I was thrilled to be able to bring my 15 years of experience, knowledge and contacts together in this programme. Art Tours are available on demand, with the possibility of ‘Meet The Artist’ or ‘Meet The Gallery’ sessions.
Louis Vuitton Foundation Paris
Bentu - Chinese artists in a time of turbulence and transformations
This exhibition at Fondation Louis Vuitton brought together 12 artists from different generations who live on mainland China. Using a wide variety of techniques and media, drawn from both local tradition and culture, as well as newer cutting edge technologies – sometimes associating with or confronting these concepts – the artists reveal the complexities of a society that is in permanent mutation. The works highlight the current state of the economy and our ecological situation, and most notably, the transformation of the relationship between the city and the countryside. Questions relating to identity are also addressed.
This is the first exhibition devoted to contemporary Chinese art in France in the past 10 years. It is co-organised with the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art of Beijing (UCCA Beijing).
Participating Artists: Cao Fei, Hao Liang, Hu Xiangqian, Liu Chuang, Liu Shiyuan, Liu Wei, Liu Xiaodong, Qiu Zhijie, Tao Hui, Xu Qu, Xu Zhen and Yang Fudong.
Curated by: Suzanne Pagé
Co-curated by: Laurence Bossé, Philip Tinari & Claire Staebler
Invited by ARTER to work on the project, I assisted the curatorial team by coordinating the exhibition production with the artists (Suzanne Pagé, Laurence Bossé, Philip Tinari & Claire Staebler) and the production team (ARTER)
