The 57th International Art Exhibition-La Biennale di Venezia·PAVILION OF CHINA


The theme of the China Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale, Continuum-Generation by Generation, is based on the Chinese concept of buxi (不息). Literally meaning 'ceaselessly' and 'unrelentingly,‘ buxi also Implies unbroken energetic transmission; and a generative life force that survives through resilience and adaptability to the vicissitudes of history and fate. These vitues have been a core aspect of Chinese civilizational ontology since ancient times. In the ’Great commentary' (Dayi) section or the classic Chinese text of divinatlon, the Book of Changes (Yijing), lt states: ‘life and growth: this is the meaning of transformation and change (shenghshengzhi wei yi); and ‘The movement of the Heavens ls constant and full of power; thus the enlightened one strengthens and exerts himself ceaselessly and tirelessly (tian xing jian, junzi yi ziqiang buxi).The formal Chinese title of this exhibition, rendered in elegant calligraphy, is in fact, simply the term buxi, and In order to illustrate the concept of cultural Iineage passmg through the generations, each of these two characters is written in a different hand:the character bu is in the hand of the great fourth-century calligrapher Wang Xizhi(303-361),while the second character,xi,is the calligraphy of his son,Wang Xianzhi(344-386).





Non - image, narrative movement

The exhibition in the performance of the content, "non-image" proposition of the image of the authenticity and typical of the questioned, the collapse of the people's understanding of the theme of the image. In the creative means, the artist relies more on the existing vocabulary to describe his feelings of life and the observation of the times, Wang Gongxin "smoke in the camellia" depicts the cruelty of the Sino-Vietnamese war warmth. Xu Feng, Meng Luodin, Gu Liming In the 1980s, the works of "fission", "Yuan", "cross" and so on not only in the visual and artistic expression of the language of the abstract painting exploration, painting materials, etc. also actively carried out Various experiments, tea, Xuan paper, herbs and other materials are painting, the breadth of painting to further increase. Painting, the exhibition also presents a number of video works. After the emergence of new media art, it was used to rebel the established art logic. New technology has brought new creative means, but the art creation has not abandoned the "image" of the discussion. Zhang Peili "focal length", "last words", "joy" are our daily life of the established understanding of the collapse. Li Yongbin video art masterpiece "face" series from the performance of their own image, to explore the limitations of self-examination under the conditions and the form.
