Join Taipei-based multimedia practitioner Charwei Tsai and Kit Hammonds, Curator at Museo Jumex, in a conversation centered on Root of Desire, published in January 2019 on the occasion of Charwei Tsai's recent solo exhibition at TKG. Root of Desire continues Tsai’s long-term examination of Mahāyāna and Hīnayāna Buddhism and centers around the Vimalakirti Sutra, an ancient spiritual text celebrated for its emphasis on gender equality. When asked “How should one look at a sentient being?” Vimalakirti responded, “the way a wise person looks at the reflection of the moon in water.”
