Durational painting performance

Berlin, Germany 

Continuing her artistic exploration of Eastern spirituality, the multidisciplinary Chinese artist takes the Vedic cosmological system as a starting point of a generative process that creates a synaesthetic bridge between painting and movement.

The second in a new cycle of performances happened at SomoS Art House, <111-0> is based on Huiquan Jiang’s research into descriptions of the universe from sources such as the Surya Siddhanta (“Sun Treatise”), Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, the Vedic text on astronomy and timekeeping written in classical Indian verse. Inspired by the writings that merge spirituality, science, and poetry, Jiang aims to reveal the subject’s inconceivable aura into physical color, shape, and body movement.

The mural is 3x5m large, Jiang finished painting in four fays.
