Postscript / a greeting from TCG Nordica

Over the past decade, stories and people associated with TCG Nordica have been as numerous as the sand on the seashore, with each being so precious. We have witnessed the process how they came across, got acquainted, accompanied and accepted with each other right here. It’s our honor to be involved in the cause of cultural exchanges, artistic exploration and social care. We hereby decided to compile this album, in order to review the past as well as to look into the future.

This book was edited and designed by Luo Fei, the gallery director, while everyone in the team have done his/her bit to offer support (Wu Yuerong, Sky, Aria, Zhu Xiaolin, Nina etc). However, due to time constraints, limited capacity, scarce resources or the lost of them in the earlier phases and plus our poor memories and financial resources, it is difficult to present this book perfect as there will be inevitably flaws, or places we hope could have done better. Thanks for your understanding. Should you find any mistake while reading, please do let us know; hopefully we can make progress in the literature for the next decade. We would also like to point out that this is not meant to be a historical document, but a report with the effort to explain our work. Therefore, we cannot include every art project and artist. Thank you for your understanding.

Thanks to every friend who has involved and made this book possible, you are the authors of the texts and art works of this book. You are the photographers, who have generously provided precious photos for the book: Eleonor Broman, Gao Yunfei, Li Xu, Du Ning, Lin Zonghui, Carl Rytterfalk, Mikael Dahl, Jonathan Kearney, Anders Gustafsson…and so on. But there are still many photos we cannot identify their authors, you have our gratitude as well! In addition, involved in the translation of this book are Li Li, Jonathan Mellergård, Jeff Crosby, Xiao Diming, Li Jianbo and so on. Those who involved in proofreading are: Michal-anne Lum, Henry Zhou, Zhou Yi and Ruth Wu etc.

There are so many people to give thanks for. Our beloved friend, you have been always supporting, caring and even being a part of TCG Nordica, though we cannot list all of your names here, we are grateful for your time, love and hard work for TCG Nordica. You know who you are. We hereby sincerely say: “Thank you all!”
