Rehabilitation and environmental awareness are the underlying themes of the Rebirth exhibition. This exhibition however focuses above all on today’s encounter between man and nature - and in particular, its elements: water, clouds, rocked, lava, dust, fire, plants, etc.
As the featured Chinese and European artists are interested in our symbolic relation with nature, the essence of its elements, or use art to speak out about their involvement in the battle for environmental protection, they all cast installations, photographies, paintings, and videos that echo the unique space of the Choi Center·Cloud House.
The Choi Center·Cloud House is a rehabilitation place constructed with over 200.000 bricks and wood beams from the Qing era, salvaged across Beijing’s old city during its renovation. The house is located at the intersection of nature and the city. Looking at the north, rural China stretches endlessly while Beijing’s multiple skyscrapers draw the skyline towards the south, the Choi Center·Cloud House aspires to link its cultural programs with its environmental commitments.
