Deng Guoyuan_In the Garden No.28

Hoedemaker Pfeiffer in collaboration with onemoon, Beijing, presents Heaven & Earth, an exhibition of contemporary Chinese art. TianDi is a concept originated in Daoism that represents a view of the cosmos based on interdependent bi-polar energies, Heaven and Earth. It is most commonly represented as Yin Yang, the never-ending, continually reinventing, evolution of all things whose oppositions are comprehensive and permeate personal, social, political, and physical forces, as well as divine aspects of the world. This exhibition is composed of work that demonstrates how Daoism lives today in the work of modern Chinese art.
