Summary:
The importance of the written word in Chinese art - as inscription, decoration or calligraphy with brush and ink - is one of the most discussed topics in the history of Chinese art. Here, Xu Bing examines the systems within the written language itself, illustrating how the visual elements articulate or create a relationship between the language user and the myriad objects around him.
