Between Earth and the Sky: The Spiritual State of Our Times seeks to embody the active nature of a live exhibition. Dialogue is the very foundation of each work in this exhibition. The artists and the curator cross-examine one another, for the purpose of sparking debate. As much as possible, there is no fixed framework or pre-established goal. Each work expresses an assembly of many meanings. Here, dialogue, collaboration and process take place.

The final results are, on the one hand, “exhibited works,” but on the other hand, they begin to carry out the mission of cross-referencing: The works serve as messages of the medium, directly interacting with visitors. And through visitors, who form a second level of the medium, a transformative channel in message transmission is formed, allowing viewers and participants to fully throw themselves into the process of perception, and moving the medium (the work) to a new vantage point. The whole process is like challenging the works to battle. And in everything that takes shape within it, in all the forms expressed, and in the reversibility ultimately produced by these forms, their “active nature” is readily apparent...
