A journey full of beauty and humanity!

In this permanent exhibition, the Chinese Garden invites you to meet three rural Chinese families that live, work and experience the land each in its own way. In a small Dai village in Yunnan, the Zhous grow bananas. On a mountain top in the same province, looking out over a breathtaking landscape, the Chens grow tea. In the province of Anhui, the Lis grow rice. These three families live at the pace of the Chinese land, which feeds them, connects them and makes huge demands on their ingenuity and resilience. But these farmers are very attached to their land. It’s a part of their identity. By revealing their stories through previously unpublished photos and accounts, this exhibition is a journey of sorts that may spur you to reconsider your own relationship with the land.
