Mountain River Jump! 山河跳！is an artist duo formed by the twin-sister artists Huang Shan and Huang He. They enjoy studying intangible beings and performing out-of-time practices, as they attempt to transform supernatural and transcendent experiences into touchable forms, and to approach humanism with occultism. As "Mountain River Jump!", through conceptual ways they jump out from the three realms (trailokya)- the desire realm, the form realm, and the formless realm.
Past exhibition and workshop project includes, group exhibition "Marching in Circles" at Long March Space, Beijing, China (2017); "Mutual Telepathy" at 5 Art Space, Guangzhou, China (2016); and "Fortune Teller's Tent: Tarot and Horoscope" at OCAT Shenzhen, Shenzhen, China (2016).
