Announcing Wang Min’s Exhibition “The tree may prefer the calm while the wind doesn’t subside.”

We are happy to announce The tree may prefer the calm while the wind doesn’t subside., an exhibition by Wang Min, as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.

Wang Min is a Chinese artist based in Beijing. She got her bachelor’s degree at Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, and then her master’s degree in Fine Arts at University of Fine Arts of Hamburg (Germany). Her work has been shown in China, Germany and Korea.

Here are some words from the artist herself.

One suffers most from the loss of one’s self and the restlessness of one’s heart. Once given to the changing phenomena, one’s heart cannot but change accordingly. “The tree prefers to be still, but the wind doesn’t care.” This old Chinese saying vividly summarizes the potential conflicts between the tree and the wind. It also metaphorically speaks out this truth: how one’s efforts to stay calm and peaceful in his/her inner world might be constantly upset by worldly desires and pains, just like the tree and the wind.

人的痛苦與掙紮來自內心的浮躁和自我的迷失。他們會被外界現象所牽引,現象在不停地變化,人的心也跟著在不停地變化。“樹欲靜而風不止” 這句中國古話映射人們的內心希望保持平靜和諧時,而外部世界的物欲與痛苦時時在拂動著人的內心。

Exhibitions by Julia Mejnertsen and Yuwen Xue will be also held. Please visit Studio Kura to meet exciting shows!
