An exhibition commissioned by Broached Commissions and their partner Asialink Arts Australia for Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA) Beijing resulting in a pavilion that explored the dialogue between Australian design and Asian arts culture.
Broach Retreat Pavilion consists of two contrasting pavilions, one light and one dark linked by a central space. The light pavilion explores the notion of 'masculinity' linked to the idea of 'yang' in Chinese philosophy. It is constructed in light coloured timber and man-made stone, celebrating light, air, and openness. The dark pavilion is enveloped in the printed ink-washed cloth that creates a dark atmosphere that is seductive, mysterious, and feminine which links to the idea of 'ying' in Chinese philosophy.
The Pavilion provides a domesticated setting for the furniture and object collection from Broached Commissions.
