About the exhibition:
Stone Telling means ‘from the earth, black’ in Chinese. The phrase was written by Eastern Han scholar Xu Shen, a literal and semantic description of ‘ink’ - its character is formed by combining ‘black’ and ‘earth’ - the pairing of the Chinese words for ‘water’ with ‘ink’ is the term used to describe traditional Chinese landscape paintings. The paintings are generally approached as subjective site-inspired performative expressions rather than accurate observations of the scene. Through this work, the artist aims to present a fluid meditation of land, home and identity a the Jerusalem Biennale.
