Taichi, literally 'Supreme Ultimate', is an ancient Chinese philosophy with a simple yet profound concept, which states that human activities should be freed from material restrictions and follow the law of nature, so as to achieve a tranquil and harmonious spiritual state.
Vantaly collaborated with artist Xie Aige in creating a sculpture series titled Tai-Chi, for Hyatt Regency Tianjin East. Through her distinctive and pure artistic language, she has embodied the wisdom of Tai-chi in her sculptures that brought about a sense of tranquillity in the hotel guestrooms.
The pure white figures is a reflection of the unadulterated mind of the Tai-Chi practitioners. With calm yet devout movements, Xie's Tai-Chi statuettes emit a sense of pureness, which perfectly represents the Tai-Chi ideal of ridding oneself of unnecessary material desires and returning to the unadorned natural world.
