Yang Fudong

Moving mountains

20 September — 01 December, 2019

Museum - Open today 09:00 ― 23:00

In his exhibition “Moving Mountains” Yang Fudong takes inspiration from a compilation of stories from Liezi, a Taoist text in China compiled in the 4th century BC. The age-old fable is told in China to almost every school child and presents a story of an old man who wants to improve the lives of his children and grandchildren and decides to crush two mountains with his own flesh and blood that stand in the way. The unrealistic goal is supported by the man’s decisive belief that after his death his children and their grandchildren will complete this objective.

To a person who is distant from Chinese culture, the author’s message is not so easy to interpret but it should rather be intuitively felt.
