Black and white, water (transformation) and fire (creativity), earth and heaven, moon and sun, passive and active, feminine and masculine, sound and vision. Through the harmonious balancing of opposites, the concept of Yin and Yang considers universal existence as an inseparable and contradictory double-face to achieve its own balance. Yin and Yang is not meant to be perfect but meant to be whole. Departing from Taoism philosophy, a verb between Yin and Yang rethinks how ideology distorts the space of interpretation and how post-industrial society constructs normative perception in the everyday.


a verb between Yin and Yang

If Yang refers to symbolic stereotypes and order then Yin applies itself to an invisible chaos that runs beneath the surface. By presenting a site-specific sound installation, following a collaborative performance, and taking part in a participatory action, the core of this event turns on opening the Yin as a means to balance our predominantly Yang-infused life.


*The pronunciation of Yin in Chinese is the same as feminine.
