Cameroonian artist Barthélémy Toguo is holding his first solo show in China at the Hadrien de Montferrand Gallery in Beijing's 798 art zone by presenting his ceramic sculptures produced in Jingdezhen, in East China’s Jiangxi province.

The show, called Fragile Body, portrays human fragility using materials linked to China’s artistic history: ceramics, ink and paper.

On display are large-scale porcelain sculptures as well as paintings inspired by his trip to Jindezhen.

Born in 1967 in Cameroon, Toguo has also held solo shows at the Uppsala Museum, Sweden, the Centre for Contemporary Art, Newcastle and at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris.

He has also featured in group shows at the Venice Biennale, the Foundation Louis Vuitton, the Sydney Biennale and the Centre Georges Pompidou.

The show runs through December 31.
