Jungle II – A Thriving Morphology is a one year long project organized by Platform China. By the name of it we refer to a space-time pattern. Without an ultimate spatial concept neither time line, the project will present itself in the shape of a diffusing, proliferating and gradually growing process instead of through a more conventional exhibition mode. Characterized by a series of art salon/conversation based type of sub-projects, it is to introduce a context for the audience to emulate, discuss and interact with art. The blending of various shapes and art forms contribute to create a new systematic project the peculiarities of which are strongly related to its inner formation.

This project start on March 9th , 2013, and will last for one year long time.

As the initial stage, Theory of Relativity adopts the same concept and structure Jungle (2010 Platform China show) was based on. The show is generated by artists only and by their own spontaneous intervention as well as through their recommendation for artworks. The idea behind Theory of Relativity emphasizes the fact that art can no more exist isolated. Art generates and grows in a context of relativism and interdependence, a cross referential context. The others becomes a crucial factor, something to relate to and interact with in a system where more possibilities can generate.

Project Background:
In this last decade, art production has expended to excess. As if on starvation, no matter surrounded by a food feast, people still lack of appetite and desire. Therefore the conventional way to periodically present a new exhibition is just like surplus of food, wasted and often boring. Over this coming year, we are going to ‘digest’ smoothly and thoroughly. We will curate and host shows or events in a more creative and flexible way which is expected to lead to the creation of new relationships between art spaces and art systems.
