Through the use of a broad range of materials and mediums, the curator and participating artists of The Garden transform chi art space into a beautiful ‘garden’ that offers an idyllic, undisturbed setting where we can scrutinise the changing shapes of nature. The talk Garden, Zen and Art is one of the public programmes accompanying The Garden, and will be hosted by landscape architect Clayton An. Currently the Dean of School of Landscape Architecture of Huali College Guangdong University of Technology, An has undertaken a lot of projects carried out in South China. At the talk, he will explore the miniature landscape formed in The Garden from in the context of landscape architecture with us. The talk will also discuss how landscape architecture and zen echo each other in the East, and how it is applied in contemporary art practice.

The talk will be conducted in Putonghua. If you wish to attend it, please email your name and phone number to us at zoieyung@k11artfoundation.org
