Essays in Chinese on feminine space. According to Wu Hung, feminine space denotes an actual or imaginary space, which is perceived and represented as a woman. A feminine space is a spatial entity — an artificial world comprised of landscape, vegetation, architecture, atmosphere, climate, color, fragrance, light, and sound, as well as selected human occupants and their activities.
This book traces the construction of this space in traditional Chinese art and visual culture (including representations of such space in literature and theater) and the social/political implications of this constructive process.
