Beijing International Jewelry Art Exhibition has been held successfully for fourth times already. There were artists form 45 countries to take part in the exhibition in 2019, making it the largest jewelry art academic exhibition globally so far. This year’s exhibition is themed “Li·Xing”. As the traditional Chinese myth Shanhaijing·Xishanjing describes: There is a mountain called Yanzi, which is three hundred and sixty li away on the south-western part. There are lots of Dan Mu on Yanzi Mountain. The leaves of Dan Mu are like paper mulberry leaves. The fruit of Dan Mu is as big as watermelon. The sepal of Dan Mu is red with dark lines. The fruit of Dan Mu are able to cure malaria, and has the function of resisting internal heat. There are lots of turtles in the south of Yanzi, and lots of jade in the north of Yanzi. The Shao River originates form Yanzi, then it goes westward into the sea. In the Shao River, there are many grindstones, named Di Li in ancient Chinese. Di refers to the fine grindstone and Li refers to the rough grindstone. Di Li means to temper, train, encourage and exhort. In Chinese, “Xing” means the trend of a man’s step. Its original meaning is road, which is then extended to mean “practice”. Above all, the theme “Li·Xing” means under the pandemic, our economic, politic, culture and art life have all been subject to unprecedented impact. As a member of the community of shared future for mankind, no one can detach himself or herself from this interconnected world. Winding or straight, the road is always in front of us. With our eyes on the future, we should walk hand in hand and encourage each other to forged ahead.
Molecular Cycle brooch, Twilight Synfonia brooch and Mythical Bird Necklace from the collection Terra Incognita will be exhibited.
