-The First “Dream of Sunbird” International Outdoor Sculpture Invitational Exhibition Contribution Invited

A. Interpretation of the Background

Yiwu, a legendary city.

November 18, 2014, in Yiwu city, east China’s Zhejiang province, the country’s longest running international freight train-YXE International Container Train-laded with bags, handicrafts, hardware and Christmas gifts started slowly towards Madrid, Spain in the 21 days journey. “YXE” (Yiwu-Xinjiang-Europe) is the one with the longest traveling distance of all Central European transport routes, passing through seven countries throughoutEurope; the sign of “YXE” achieving all line run-through can be considered the forming of significant strategic fulcrum of “One Belt,One Road”. Network advantage in global trade and developed commodity market system opened the commodity exports of “New Silk Road” in addition to its original shipping way. As the world’s largest small commodity distribution center, Yiwu has become a leader and starting point of the economic zone of New Silk Road, and certainly has taken up its new mission-becoming a platform for China to the world.

However, in the super platform of “One Belt,One Road”, only with “Made inChina” is not enough. Since ancient times,Silk Roadhas played a very important role for the development and communication of Eastern and Western cultures. Our country’s “One Belt,One Road” strategy will open up new channels for Chinese and Eurasian economy and culture, which has far-reaching significance. Cultural influence is beyond time and space, and across borders. If ourNew Silk Roadgoes with the help of culture, it will definitely further enhance the international reputation and influence of Yiwu. Combining with an important opportunity to build “One Belt, One Road”, we will actively take the advantage of “humanity first” by organizing the “New Silk Road, New Starting Point- the First ‘Dream of Sunbird’ International Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition”, to speak good Chinese story, to spread good Chinese voice. Let “Dream of Sunbird” and even “Chinese Dream” and with the desire for a better life and bright prospects of neighboring countries link together, making a contribution to the cultural exchanges and cooperation of the “ One Belt, One Road” countries.

B. Overview of the Theme

“Jin Wu” is the totem of Sunbird. Yiwu has the saying of “Jin Wu Zai Ri” (金乌载日)since ancient times. In the dialect of Yiwu, the “Ri”(日) is still referred to as “Wu”(乌), such as “Wu Yin”(乌阴)representing the sun going down and the sun rises being called “Ri Tou Wu Shang Lai”(日头乌上来). The so called “Wu” means the sun; the so called traders means the bird god. It is worth mentioning that the Sunbird was a common totem of ancient humans. The worship of sun and birds is the two worships of earliest human societies . “Dream of Sunbird” is to use the language of sculpture to create an ideal world like the totem worship! Since the beginning, we will continuously hold annually Outdoor Sculpture Invitational Exhibition, and gradually integrate into the most classical contemporary culture themes and elements of related countries along “One Belt,One Road”. With our most extraordinary creativity and imagination, we will explore the visual limitation of art, and inspire thinking frontier of human. “Yiwu Sculpture Park” will not only become an important platform to research and lead the development of the world’s public art, but also will become a monument in the “One Belt, One Road” strategy.

“New Silk Road, New Starting Point – the First Dream of Sunbird International Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition” will invite including 7 countries along the YXE Road-Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany, France, and China, with a total number of 40 well-known contemporary sculptors, to make sculptures for Yiwu, continuously creating three-dimensional visual spectacle.

In the project activities, we will strengthen the history and culture research and study of countries along the New Silk Road. Continue to explore the culture and the humanistic spirit of ancientSilk Road, and give it a new meaning of the times. We will invite artists to create characteristic works of art under the theme of “New Silk Road”. Using sculpture as a forerunner, we will carry out extensive cooperation and cultural exchanges, and spread the outstanding culture of Chinese nation, by way of holding relics exhibitions mutually, holding high-profile symposiums, carrying out “Re-explore ancient Silk Road” activities and other cultural investigation activities. Make countries and people along the road share the development fruits of contemporaryChinatogether, and understand the peaceful development wishes ofChina.
