THE BANYAN TREE -
ART + ENCOUNTER

TCG Nordica Kunming
Friday 18 March – Friday 1 April

In the northern latitudes the Banyan Tree is known as “Ficus” in the flowerpot, in the tropics, he is revered, loved and feared. In the southern parts of China, the Banyan Tree had and has enormous cultural importance. After Thailand, Cambodia, Germany, Tahiti, Cook Islands, Fiji and India, Kunming is the 9th station of the worldwide touring exhibition THE BANYAN TREE. It shows paintings, sculptures, videos, photos and installations by more than 50 artists from 20 countries. The art works have been collected by the German media artist Alfred Banze. Inspired from these artworks, he organized numerous workshops for children and young people in schools, galleries, cultural centers and artists’ studios in many countries around the globe. The now displayed exhibition shows both, the original artworks and the „remixes“ by children and young people, all inspired by the Banyan Tree. BB Liu from Shanghai and Luo Fei from Kunming represent the lively Chinese art scene. Also on display are selected results from Banyan Workshop at Yunnan Art Academy in 2005.
