“Re-discover“, curated by independent curator Karlyn De Jongh, exhibits the work of 19 Chinese and Taiwanese contemporary artists coming from a variety of artistic backgrounds. The common denominator for their works, following the curatorial vision for this section, is their return to their Asian cultural roots and their process of transformation, re-elaboration, deconstruction, reconstruction and ultimately re-discovery of their origins, through the inclusion of history, traditional media and philosophy, symbols and imagery of Chinese culture. Mixed with their knowledge of western artistic practices, the artists’ works explore Chinese heritage through the lens of globalisation, bringing the artists closer to home and yet internationally significant and understandable to a western outlook. The results are beautiful re-explorations of traditional eastern culture and the modern world seen through the East.
