DESCRIPTION

Thousands of anonymous street calligraphers operate daily in Chinese parks and streets, endlessly tracing texts composed of "hanzi" characters that slowly disappear as the water evaporates. This phenomenon called "dishu" (earth writing or practicing ephemeral calligraphy on the ground using clear water as ink) appeared in the beginning of the 1990s in a North Beijing park and soon spread to most major Chinese cities. Based on classic Chinese literature, poetry or aphorisms, these monumental letterings, ranging from static regular to highly cursive styles, make the whole body break into a spontaneous dance and infinite formal renewals. This street calligraphic practice corresponds to both a socializing need and an individual search for self accomplishment or improvement. Dishu : Ground Calligraphy in China is the first survey on contemporary calligraphic practices in Chinese public spaces, documented during the summer of 2011 in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenyang. It takes the form of a major photographic essay, which traces the roots of this handwriting phenomenon and its development in Chinese society, analyses in detail the home-made writing tools specially designed for street lettering and explores its possible transposition into other writing cultures.

In China cosmology, the square or ‹di› represents the earth and the circle represents the sky; ‹shu› signifies book, writing by association. The expression ‹dishu› literaly means square calligraphy, i.e. earth calligraphy: practicing ephemeral calligraphy on the ground, using clear water as ink.
