Li-E Chen: Thinking Posture

Part of China Changing Festival

Learn to write and speak four Chinese characters with artist Li-E Chen, in this learning and participatory exercise.

You are introduced to four Chinese characters [Si Xiang Zi Tài], and taught to speak them in Mandarin Chinese as well as writing them with chalk on brown paper rolls.

These characters translate as ‘thinking posture’, the artist’s term for the disposition of mind and body that governs one’s ways of thinking, living and artistic-making. Chen invites you to question what your own ‘thinking posture’ is by learning to write and speak the characters.
