W&W workshop by Wu Jian’an and David Wang


China House was opened in a renovated space of an abandoned house in 2016 and has been a place for artists and people engaging in art and community building to stay and create artworks since then. Wu Jian’an has been selected for ETAT2018 to create artwork. Drawings and calligraphy filled the entire wall in an open void space holding collections of handwriting by participants in workshops held in Japan and China. The artist makes a new artwork by compiling over a hundred of these works. A new story begins here when all these different contributions are gathered and spread over in the house.
