Multi-dimensional Series Exhibition of Chinese Gardens


"Chinese Garden Multidimensional Series Exhibition" opened at the China Garden Museum. The exhibition showcases 118 sets of artifacts including bronze mirrors, Han glazed tiles, calligraphy and painting, contemporary artworks. Through a narrative thread connecting historical relics with contemporary artworks, the exhibition systematically presents the origin, rise, prosperity, peak, slow development, and decline of bronze mirrors, interpreting the relationship and philosophical implications between bronze mirrors and gardens.

Since ancient times, there has been an inseparable relationship between "mirrors" and gardens. Garden creators often liken the surface of lakes to mirrors, with pavilions, terraces, buildings, and lush flowers and trees on the shore reflecting in the water's shimmering light and shadows. Bronze mirrors were also commonly placed in garden rooms, capturing the gestures and emotions of ancient people, becoming a special carrier of their inner feelings.
