Background 

As the core hub city of the national strategy such as “Western Development”, “One Belt and One Road” and “Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Belt”, Chongqing is the turning point of the historical destiny of China.

Gifts to Earth: “礼尚往来”

Date: 26th to 28th Sep. 2018
Type: Art Workshop
Artist: Federica B. 
Location: Bayu Farming Gallery

We must behave like a friend

towards the friend

and return gift with gift;

we must oppose it

smile to smile

and deception to lie.

You know it, if you have a friend

in which you trust

and if you want to get a good result,

you must confuse your soul with his

and exchange gifts

and often visit him.

The generous and valiant men

They live the best life;

And are not afraid.

But a coward is afraid of everything;

the miser is always afraid of the gifts.
