Poet in Hangzhou

Nomad Noé

A valiant hero driven by a thirst for knowledge, Qiu Jin (1875-1907) defies prevailing societal norms by leaving her home, unbinding her feet, and pursuing an education abroad in Japan.  Upon her return, Qiu Jin serves as a revolutionary in support of the liberation of Chinese women, embedding a lasting legacy into the consciousness of her people. Ruminate on a path of delicate gardenia and unwavering bamboo, as the mysteries of Hangzhou unfold between ancient temples and night-blooming tuberose.  Walk alongside its placid lakes as they bring into focus a reflection of what is in this very moment, and of what can be.

Notes: Bamboo, Tuberose, Gardenia
