A chinese tea ceremony by Weirong Li, The Lonely Panda, infused with a Guqin performance by Liu Chengyin. . Within the intimate confines of our gallery, we bring together the refined elegance of a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and the enchanting melodies of a guqin concert bringing together two ancient art forms to create a transcendent experience. The gallery will be transformed into a ceremonial space, carefully curated to evoke a sense of tranquility and mindfulness. We propose a modern interpretation of a tea house focusing on the power of solace and introspection, all elements working together to create a meditative atmosphere. . Ceramic set design by Sandra Berghianu. She creates mostly wheel-thrown unique pieces in stoneware and porcelain clays guided by an aesthetic that draws inspiration from both traditional Asian influences. @sandraberghianu .
