Abstract: Curatorial Statement The world has its diversity. It is the details of material and spirit and the details of their details that constitute both the signifier and the signified of the concept - “from regionalism to wholeness”. The intricate differentiated steps by which an art subject thinks and associates and their real-world equivalents fail all trials of objective description. This state is true to any spiritual phenomenon. Willing or not, an individual may communicate to others the way he thinks only to a very limited extent or in an obscure form. The complexity of things, situations and incidents and of spiritual existence all contributes to the diversity of the world. People in such a polysemous and coded world will have no way to go if refusing to communicate with their own language, color and thinking. Those states link, directly or indirectly, to the “secret garden” via their symbols under the contemporary spiritual context. It takes the communicability of the subject of art practice and his works for a sincere and effective communication to take place despite of the time and space and the situation - understandable or not. Differences existing between the west and east worlds in the habit of thinking, attitude to art, context-meaning connection, artistic fashion and skills, individual sensibility … all add to the “sense of being secret”, furthering and extending it to the extreme extent in a particular art object. However, it is through the very differences we get another significant chance to explore and understand the art expression. The 21st edition of the vibrARTion project - “Secret Garden” Int’l Art Exhibition is a positive response to the strong demand of brilliant young artists, designers and other art learners and workers for more activities and programs that are both appropriate and influential on the collaboration of MoCA Beijing, The Peninsula Beijing and Bennington College. Artistic exchange, interaction and crossover will be highlighted in this event.
