China sublimates harmony in diversity

China is at the forefront of the international art market. The Middle Kingdom is a guest country alongside Côte d’Ivoire. For the 14th edition of the Dakar Biennale, the China Pavilion will highlight a concept around Transitional Energy/Active Energy. Headed by Curator Yur Jieqiong, the China Pavilion takes active and transitional energy as the concept of pure conservation. According to Jieqiong, the transition comes from quantum physics, which refers to the momentary evolution of a quantum object.

The China Pavilion implements this concept to present the perception and opportunity of contemporary Chinese art in a globalization and localization context. And this is effected through the presence of a dozen Chinese visual artists.

The curator notes that the Chinese individual artist’s transition reflects that of the cultural community he or she represents. Yur Jieqiong finds that Africa and China share a unique wisdom, humanity, life and death.

The Curator pledges that China will present the cultural vision of « Harmony in Diversity », coexistence and prosperity.
