island6 art collective (Liu Dao 六岛)

BLURB

The Shanghai based arts collective brings you our 53rd in house exhibition, the "Art of Wu Wei" commemorating and celebrating these phenomenal moments of harmony, when man and nature are one. Wu Wei itself is defined as being an action that takes no action; a response that falls into place only if there is universal harmony, typifying the saying from the Tao Te Ching, "The Tao does nothing, yet leaves nothing undone". Through the use of LED technology intermingled with traditional Chinese Shan Shui (山水) and paper cutting techniques, island6 (Liu Dao) combines their contemporary and collective spirit into the traditions of Chinese art and mythology, creating a truly 'harmonious' techno vision of man and his environment. Traveling all the way from Bangkok where it debuted at the esteemed Lotus Arts de Vivre, "The Art of Wu Wei" will take over the island6 Arts Center from June 29th and run until the end of August, showcasing the collectives illuminating insight and reverence for the intersection of traditional and contemporary, mixed with irreverence, humor and compassion.
