The Jianfu Palace Garden was built in the five years of Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty (1740). Emperor Qianlong collected his favorite rare relics here, and often wrote poetic paintings in the garden. On June 27, 1923, a mysterious fire broke out suddenly in the garden, and the entire garden was turned into ashes with countless treasures overnight. Since then, the Jianfu Palace Garden has slept under the rubble for 80 years.
The reconstruction of Jianfu Palace began in 1999. Since its completion in 2006, the Jianfu Palace Garden Area is mainly used as a special place to receive senior VIPs from various countries, hold cultural and academic exchanges, press conferences, and small internal exhibitions. .

This year’s ‘Young Artist of the Year’ award was won by Lin Ke. Lin Ke’s creations are in a realistic way of simulating reality. He converted the material he created from lines and colors into various images on the computer. Its complex look and feel and the logical structure of the clues are addictive. Its multiple imagination of the relationship between nature and artificial, reality and virtual, exceeds the meaning of the image itself. From the works of Lin Ke, I feel the loneliness of a young man in the Internet age. The modern people’s mind and feelings in front of the computer screen show a kind of warmth, expressing ‘goodwill’ to the world. And for his award, Prince Charles’s cousin, Princess Ingle, in addition to the trophy, Hublot also specially provided a classic fusion series Hublot watch as a prize.
This year’s heaviest ‘Artist of the Year’ was won by Zhang Peili. Zhang Peili’s work has always contained multiple meanings, including both political and social comments, as well as personal life concerns. His video works focus on the paradox of the relationship between man and the world. With a standpoint of isolation and neutral reflection, he freely and deeply considers human issues, creating a large-capacity, comprehensive, and powerful art system. . Zhang Peili’s work has a special power. His sound installations continue to show strong interference and disappearance, which shows the conflict and anxiety in communication in the media age. The prize is also Hublot’s classic fusion series watch.
Tonight, in this historic royal palace, the collision between oriental art and western culture, traditional watchmaking and contemporary art, historical accumulation and avant-garde spirit has become the supreme and perfect embodiment of the art of fusion. This is an art gathering with many stars, and the spark of Chinese contemporary art will surely bloom here! ‘(Text / picture watch house Mao Zhuang)
