LEE MINGWEI: 禮 Li, Gifts and Rituals celebrates the giving and receiving of time and devotion. One of the most important influences for Lee Mingwei is the Confucian principle Li (禮). This concept encompasses thoughts on rites, rituals, gifts and decorum. Building on this, the exhibition examines gestures of hospitality and rituals of giving and receiving. …
For three projects, Villa Stuck launched calls for participation to interested parties in advance. For Fabric of Memory, Lee was looking for textile mementos, and for The Mending Project for people who would mend clothes on site and hold conversations with the visitors. The Living Room invites Munich residents to show their personal collections as part of the exhibition.
