Zheng Guogu: Succulent Shanshui

Back Back

Zheng Guogu
Succulent Shanshui

1. The allegedly never withering flower Crassulaceae (a very ancient species evolving from an aquatic plant), are now gradually entering the Chinese garden.

2. Succulents are grown in Liao Garden 1 because of its resemblance to the ancient lotus seat, or the unnameable flowers from the extra dimensions depicted in Thangka backgrounds.

3. Besides the observation on the neural curves of the ancient wisemen, I also observe the entire inner energy construction of the human body, and I surprisingly found out that inside every one of us there’s a tree of life within an optoelectronic system, where nameable and unnameable flowers grow, all that there is there, blossoming at the same time.

4.I believe that everything differs from one to another, and every one of us can find their own way to be with the succulents.
