Produced on the occasion of Evelyn Taocheng Wang’s residency and subsequent exhibition Sour Gnossiennes at the Städtisches Museum Abteiberg, 23 August – 25 October, 2020.
During her six-month stay in Mönchengladbach, the artist developed a new body of work that consists of a series of drawings. The exhibition title refers to the small, poetic piano pieces by the French composer Erik Satie (1866-1925). Their melancholic mood reminds Evelyn Taocheng Wang of people quietly waiting for their bus on a grey and rainy day.
