Bonita Helmer at MOCA Beijing - Forms of the Formless
Start Date: 1, Feb 2014
End Date: 30, Apr 2014





The vibrARTion Project·Tianjin 2013 “Forms of the Formless” Exhibition of International Contemporary Art travels to MOCA Beijing in February 2014

Artists: Dai Guangyu, Jing Yumin, Jing Shijian, Qin Feng, Wang Yiqiong, Cui Xianji, Qin Chong, Li Yongzheng, Tan Xun, Yang Liming, Huang Zheng, GuanJingjing, LitaAlbuquerque, Annetta Kapon, Francesca Mitterrand, Bonita Helmer, Luc Leestemaker

Begin from the “form”,
Begin within the formless.

With “form,”

With the form of “non-being,”

With the form of “formless,”

To create image beyond form,

To produce great image beyond image.


"The formless" is an important concept in traditional Chinese philosophy. The Book of Change has stated, "...celestial bodies move to shape in the sky and landscapes are formed on the earth", and Tao Te Ching also has it that “great form is formless". The exhibition “Forms of the Formless” presents such a group of artists: their ultimate intention is not to make visual “forms” but to spiritually experience the oriental philosophy, intentionally or not. The artworks are records of their dialogues with the inner self and the existence of being; they have gone beyond the visual “form,” and become “image”: the image of formless, the great image beyond image.
