[China]. Xingjian, Gao.
Soul Mountain. Translated from the Chinese by Mabel Lee.
New York, HarperCollins, 2000, XI,(3),510 pag., paperback (very good). = Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature 2000. Part travel diary, part philosophy, part love story, ‘Soul Mountain’ is an legant, unforgettable novel that journeys deep into the heart of modern-day China. In 1982 Chinese playwright, novelist and artist Gao Xingjian was diagnosed with lung cancer, the very disease which had killed his father. For six weeks Gao inhabited a transcendental state of imminent death, treating himself to the finest foods he could afford while spending time reading in an old graveyard in the Beijing suburbs. But a secondary examination revealed there was no cancer - he had won a ‘reprieve from death’ and had been thrown back into the world of the living. Faced with a repressive cultural environment and the threat of a spell in a prison farm, Gao fled Beijing. He travelled first to the ancient forests of central China and from there to the east coast, passing through eight provinces and seven nature reserves, a journey of fifteen thousand kilometres over a period of five months. The result of this epic voyage of discovery is Soul Moutain. Interwoven into this picaresque journey are myriad stories and countless memorable characters - from venerable Daoist masters and Buddhist monks and nuns to mythical Wild Men; deadly Qichun snakes to farting buses. Conventions are challenged, preconceptions are thwarted and the human condition, with all its foibles and triumphs, is laid bare.

Gao Xingjian - a Collection of 4 Invitations
Invitation. No Binding. Ephemera, Fine. Various sizes. Years : 2004, 2008, 2009, 2011. 'Gao Xingjian is a celebrated Chinese-French painter, writer, and cultural figure. Best known for his poetry and prose, Gao has also maintained a dedicated painting practice. His art is consistently monochromatic and solemn, often featuring snowy landscapes dotted with dark silhouettes rendered through layers of subtle ink washes. Referencing the literati painting practiced by the scholarly Chinese class since the fifth century, Xingjian's work is placed within the philosophical and cultural theory of Absurdism for its wry examination of human existence. “The human need for language is not simply for the transmission of meaning,” he once said, “it is at the same time listening to and affirming a person's existence.” Born on January 4, 1940 in Ganzhou, China, he grew up studying the arts in a privileged social class during the Second Sino-Japanese War, later moving to Beijing to attend the Beijing Foreign Studies University in 1957. His artwork has been met with international acclaim, and he has exhibited paintings at galleries like Hazan in Paris and at Perennial in New York, both in 2012. A major influence in the contemporary cultural landscape, who is perhaps more appreciated outside of his native China, Gao was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 2000.'
