They own and operate a wonderful company, Torana and create exquisite Tibetan carpets in both traditional and contemporary designs and colors. From their two shops in Beijing and another in Shanghai, their antique and modern carpets have attracted people from all over the world with an eye for fine quality carpets.
Among the cool things we saw and the most striking of the exhibitions, was the Anish Kapoor installation.
I wasn't familar with his work, but he's shown frequently in London, and has permanent exhibits in Tate and MOMA. The entry through the deep spiral walkway into the ascension room is sublime. The present but vacant 'delicateness' of the plume is mesmorizing. Noticeable was the absence of color, the absence of temperature, and sound.
....that is until three kids came screaming through the spiral. They were stopped in their tracks too. It stopped everyone, even if only a moment.
He works in other forms and materials too and other works are on display until the end of the month.
Beijing isn't complete without a visit to 798 District.
