The bustling city of Lhasa, situated in the picturesque backdrop of Southwest China’s Xizang Autonomous Region, has opened its arms to a one-of-a-kind exhibition: “Infinite Cosmos.” This distinctive event, a collaborative effort between the avant-garde visual creative label Modern Sky Vision Maker and the esteemed Jebum-gang Art Center, invites visitors on a journey to explore the depths of spirituality and human connection with nature.
Set to mesmerize art and culture enthusiasts until the end of December, the “Infinite Cosmos” exhibition is not just a showcase but a deep dive into the essence of what it means to be human in a rapidly evolving world. The mountains, vast distances, and the vast expanse of the sky are often seen as symbols closest to the spirituality that individuals, across generations, have relentlessly pursued.
Li Zhenhua, the esteemed curator behind this grand initiative, sheds light on the core philosophy of the exhibition. In his perspective, amidst the hustle and bustle of modern society and the often-overwhelming wave of technology, there exists a profound need for spaces that allow people to reconnect with their inner selves. “The overarching aim,” Li notes, “is to facilitate an environment where perceptions, often suppressed by the rapid strides of contemporary society and technology, can be rejuvenated and expanded.”
This introspective journey is brought to life at the Jebum-gang Art Center, where the artwork of 13 talented artists finds a home. Their creations, ranging from intricate installations and avant-garde new media pieces to evocative sound art works, set the stage for visitors to embark on a sensory exploration of self-awareness and connection with the universe.
A noteworthy feature of this exhibition, which sets it apart from many of its contemporaries, is its pioneering use of sound technology. Demone, who manages Modern Sky’s ambient music label, Sound Blanc, highlights that this is the maiden instance in China where an art exhibition has integrated the immersive Dolby Atmos spatial audio technology. This integration promises attendees an unparalleled auditory experience, further deepening their engagement with the artworks and the overarching theme of spirituality.
In essence, the “Infinite Cosmos” exhibition stands as a testament to the power of art to transcend boundaries, providing a haven for reflection, introspection, and a deeper understanding of one’s place in the grand tapestry of existence.
