Curators, Tang Dixin and Yang Yuying, hope to let the works face each other directly, confronting each other. For this reason, there will not be refined construction and design. The intertwine chaos will create a form of power.
On the day of the opening, musician Tang Ting and Wen Jun will perform for only one night. The special architectural form of tank will create multiple visual effects for the exhibition and performance —— when entering the "force temple", it is like entering an amusement park that has performances and entertainments, and also like entering a mad carnival.
