Mo Projects proudly announces the opening of “The Hill of Qi Fu”on the 26th of May, and the exhibition will remain on view through the 24th of July 2016.
In late 2015, I went to this remote village called Qifu village, which is located in the Kongtong Mountain that is next to the Pingliang city in Gansu province. In the north of the Qifu village, there was a natural collapsed slope, and by using my own aesthetic judgment, I have renovated, repaired, and maintained the place to reach the peaceful environment I have pursued. This work has taken us 150days to complete, and we have reconstructed and fixed 5500 cubic meters of mountain, planted more than 7000 different kinds of plants, and renamed this “man-made”, “self-designed” mountain “The Hill of Qi Fu”. The first phase of the work has been already completed, and the second phase is still under preparation. “The Hill of Qi Fu” is going to be a long-term project of art. “Qifu’s” land and the “mountain crater” that surrounds it are not there-characterization of media, but the direct connection between the nature and our physical body. It’s my way of obtaining the nature, and my way of express my unique artistic conception.
