The Abode of Illusions: The Garden of Zhang Daqian, featured a group of photographs by Hu Chongxian with inscriptions by Zhang Daqian. This was the first time the artworks have been showcased in China since they left nearly 40 years ago.

Zhang Daqian, master of traditional Chinese painting,designed and built his last garden in the verdant Waishuangxi in Shilin District, Taipei, and named it Moye Jingshe, translated as Māyā’s Abode or the Abode of Illusions. The exhibitionis comprehensive with scenic landscaping elaborately designed by Zhang. The composition of tiny details from every tree and bush craft the epitome of his enthusiasm for nature and the pursuit of aesthetic perfection.
