For the second edition of Prompts & Triggers, Qiu Zhijie (b. 1969, Fujian), one of China’s most versatile artists, draws from major political and historical narratives to produce large-scale, ink-based maps. From Confucianism to Enlightenment, Qiu Zhijie charts new paths, centers, nodes, and relationships, scrutinizing the mutable boundaries that outline histories of world thought. The concepts on which Qiu Zhijie bases the series of mappings of the contemporary world are summarized in the maps titled Map of 21st century, Map of Utopia, Map of Total Art, Map of Chinese History, Map of Nanjing Yangzi River, and Map of Spirit Renew.
