Yijing in contemporary art in China

In an upcoming exhibition of her works at Gallery Yang in eastern Beijing, Ms. Tang will transform the space through precisely placed works like “Flowing Water,” where sunlit raindrops seem to defy gravity to fall on the ceiling, and “Heaven and Earth,” an otherworldly solar system where blue planets and orange asteroids orbit an invisible sun. Her goal is to create a space that is in perfect balance according to the 2,500-year-old principles of the I Ching, or the Book of Changes, which provides guidance on how to navigate a cosmic web of links between heaven, earth and humanity.br /br /“We can use the I Ching and the related concepts of feng shui not only to divine the future but also to change our individual destiny, and that is my aim with these works,” said Ms. Tang, a recent graduate of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.
