About the work:
Under the Corona situation, Xu started thinking about the true meaning of existence.
Classical Karesansui were created at temples of Zen Buddhism in Kyoto during the Muromachi period, usually meant to be seen while seated from a single viewpoint outside the garden. They were intended to serve as an aid to meditation. With Zen, a small world contains eternity.
Xu used the rice to replace the sand it should be in a Karesansui (dry landscape), the Japanese rock garden, for the rice represents human beings’ basic needs.
