Time: 2pm~8pm ,May 27, May 28
Address: Chorgasse 5, Zurich
You are encouraged to experience all the self-developed divination systems created by Mountain River Jump!. The interactive works shown at Chorgasse 5 aim to explore the possibilities of communication and re-examine our memories as well as cultural memes.
You can also choose to talk with the artists by playing Cards of Chinese Animal Idioms. Mountain River Jump! has chosen 49 Chinese animal idioms that are frequently used in daily life, then illustrated them and made them into 49 divinatory cards, from which we can see how our ancestors described human’s situation through animal idioms. The same kind of analogies can be also found in Zhouyi (the I Ching). Mountain River Jump! has interacted with over 500 visitors using their self-designed divination cards.
