“It is my honor to serve as part of Revelations China, and I see it as my mission to facilitate the exchange and collaboration between the craft sectors of China and France.
Despite the controversy surrounding the concept of "economic globalization" and the timing of its introduction, its undeniable reality presents new challenges for the survival and development of handicrafts in the post-industrial era.
As an optimist, I choose to view this as an opportunity. In this context, how do we protect, utilize, and innovate in handicrafts? These are the questions posed by the era, and I hope that Revelations China will provide surprising answers.”

“Since my involvement in planning the Chinese Banquet at the Révélations 2017 in Paris, a profound connection with the salon has been developed. Revelations China, a contemporary exhibition, brings worldwide fine materials, crafts, art, and design to China and showcases innovations from craftsmen, artists, and designers globally. It provides profound insights into art interpretation, design research, and craft inheritance.
Renowned for its craftsmanship, China holds a significant and unique international charm. I believe Revelations China, rooted in heritage and strengthened by contemporary Chinese art and design, will foster new creativity, innovation, communication, and integration within the field.”
