From Cultural Dualism to the Regenerative Powers of Myths from the Contemporary Chinese Character System
Mar 15, 2014 Saturday 19:00 - 21:00
2F, Rockbund Art Museum (Shanghai 20 Huqiu Road)
The program extends the cultural dualism within the artworks of Bharti Kher as a starting point towards a larger discussion about the changes in visual images of life forms from a Chinese taxonomy originating in the radicals of Chinese characters to the introduction of Western binomial nomenclature. With this particular model of Chinese classification, we can observe the regenerative capabilities of legends in the contemporary Chinese language.
Free admission, reservation is required.
