Wang Dongling, one of China’s leading calligraphers, has an art exhibit of I Ching-based calligraphy.
The China Daily wrote: “At the exhibition being held at the Tiamiao temple on Monday, titled Between Heaven & Heart, Wang will display a piece work of “chaos calligraphy” in which he rewrote in white paint the Chinese divination classics I-Ching, or Book of Changes, on a 32-meter-long glass board. The script, regardless of its unrecognizable style, brings a renewed visual experience of which people focus on the rhythm of lines instead of the meaning of characters.”
Wang has exhibited and taught around the world.
“The late artist Walter De Maria was known for making sculptures with enormous mounds of dirt and even bolts of lightning. Presented as a sort of enigmatic puzzle, “360° I Ching” measures nearly 10,000 square feet in its newest incarnation, sprawling over two large galleries at Dia:Beacon, the museum for minimalist and monumental art in upstate Beacon, N.Y. The work, surrounded by an aura of mystery and quiet contemplation, opens Sunday and will remain on view through summer 2017.”
