The concept of Qi – the flow of energy – is essential to Tai-chi practice. It is the language used to pinpoint how the internal arts feels – an imagined communication between the mind and the body.
Jessie Yingying Gong
Having been born and raised in China before setting out to study and live in Europe, prompted Jessie a lasting fascination with the topics of memory, identity, symbols and language. She is currently developing a series of works regarding the form, materialisation and development of language. The research into these aspects of language, with a focus on the written forms, leads her to a kind of archaeology of symbolism that serves to chronicle our history on a multitude of levels.
