"All Crows Under the Sun Are Black!" (2012) is part of a series of monumental landscapes, dissociated from all notions of temporality, made by Yan Pei-Ming since 1996.
In this canvas a flock of crows flies above the Acropolis, emerging from a chaotic cloud of dark marks. The size of the piece and its sombre palette give the landscape an allegorical, universal quality.
