This is at the tio of the dog nose, at " the cross of the edge of the sea " ( boundary between river and sea space),


in Saint-Brévin-les-Pins, where arises the great  sea serpent of Huang Yong Ping, whose skeleton  appears like


it is the result of an archeological excavation. By showing on the shores of Europe a major figure  of the Chinese


mythology,  Huang Yong Ping addresses as often in his work  the notions of identity and cultural hybridity.


The  environnemental issue is also very present in his art he regularly updates the paradox of man sawing off


the bough on which he sits,  torn between creative abilities and destructive impulses.


This is one possible reading of this work : positioned on the foreshore, the skeleton appears along with the rhytm


of the tide, and welcomes gradually marine flora and fauna.
