Poet Amara van der Elst encounters Zi Xian in TENT with her words and movements

See how Amara van der Elst and the other five poets respond to the exhibition and artworks with their poetry forming a growing dialogue about the linguistic reality of Rotterdam.

This expo has questioned my answers and answered questions. I now realize how fluid and transient language is...—Amara van der Elst

Zi Xian is invited to be presented in a site-specific form during the whole exhibition ‘Wat ik je nog wilde zeggen’ at TENT.

Language can help us make sense, provide space, or act as an invitation but it can also disrupt relationships, hinder, or hurt. Language can establish connections, but sometimes it puts us up against each another.

‘Wat ik je nog wilde zeggen’ is an exhibition about the poetry and the power of words; about shifting meanings, misconceptions and deception; about losing and finding words.

Foreshore 漫步潮閒 Online Premiere on 2nd April!

Welcome to immerse yourself with us on YenTing’s youtube channel

Developed with subtle gestures upon the minimal paper sculptures, this video interweaves a series of interpretations about the phenomenon among the moon and the tides, the strings and the vibration, the light and the shadow.
Among the melody and the movements, the lyrics and the performance, it's all about the narrative.

Thanks all for visiting ‘The Hanzi Space’ during MOMO19

All encounters of exchanges and imagination are poems streaming into the hanzi space. We practice shaping the light as we practice depicting our landscape in mind.

Thank you all for making it happen. Slow wish to create, to perform for our city next time.

Tracing my visitors:

You used the verb 'wait' to depict the still light with the expected possibilities behind.
You moved the arms to show the open & close space of the flow.
You expected those miniatures become parts of the landscape for walking in.
You said their shadows swing slowly as if in the rhythm of shimmering light going through the leaves.
I listened to you reading your poetry regarding drifting and identities.

You said every stage is the communicative space; every in-/direct dialogue is a performance.
On Sunday morning, I listened to the song you sent to me: a soundscape folk written for the highway roundabout and the under reeds and pond.
You used a timeline to imagine the changing shapes of the life cycle.
I ask the photos from you, the message you collected from the piece and light.
We exchanged the ideas of the performance of languages.


Great thanks to Harry & MoMo Festival for your invitation with trust and kind professional help.
More ongoing research and urban miniature series are coming soon.
