Behind the Curtain revealed artist Liang Yuanwei’s process-based approach to art making. Her earlier works bear the mark of conceptual art. Her practice has slowly evolved over the years, imbued with her recent research on Chinese and Western traditions. The exhibition titles in English and Italian both allude to the revelation of what is unseen for a moment on the theatre stage; the Chinese is a direct borrowing from the title of an exquisite Peking opera evoking themes of love, treason, and honour.
