“Shan shui” is the Chinese word for landscape and means mountain water. The mountain and water unite creating clouds of mist. The mist is the representation of the void and in the void, everything fits and everything is possible. In this performance, commissioned by BE FESTIVAL for last years BEatHome Festival, the artists paint a landscape without paintings from the emptiness of confinement.

"Avec la performance SHAN SHUI, Rubio et Jerez nous rappellent à quel point l’art est capable d’exprimer avec délicatesse des sentiments aussi complexes que la perte, la fuite, le manque et l’isolement avec une formidable sobriété mêlée d’une ardeur que rien ne semble atténuer, même pas le confinement."
