This is an anthology of texts on the calligraphic practice of Chinese artist Wang Dongling. The collected essays deal with many aspects of his oeuvre. In addition to the stylistic characteristics of Wang's calligraphy and ink art, as well as the performativity of his 'giant calligraphy' (some of which are live-performed on site in the exhibition space), some writers also attempt to relate and position his art in the larger realm of contemporary art and its history.

Includes artist's biography.
