Pouring Tea Until It Is All Evaporated with Jingwei Bu
In this evocative performance, a stack of A4 paper serves as a makeshift tea table, with each spill of tea creating spontaneous art on the stained paper—echoes of a 2021 performance. The act of pouring, meticulous to avoid spillage, contrasts with the inevitable drips, weaving a tension-filled experience. As the tea leaves its mark, it captures the essence of mindfulness, celebrating the present moment’s quiet power. Bu’s absence leaves an open canvas for the audience’s reflection, turning mindfulness into a shared experience. This performance, drawing from the Zen philosophy of traditional tea ceremonies, distills tranquillity into each pour. It’s an artistic journey where time, motion, and contemplation exist in tranquil balance, inviting the audience to find peace within the transformative art of tea.
