In Cao Xueqin's masterpiece novel, The Dream of the Red Chamber, a chapter that narrates Baoyu dreaming about the confines of the Great Void is of importance as it includes several hints to foreshadow later developments.

The depictions of the Great Void inspired Argentine artist Leandro Erlich when preparing for his solo exhibition in China, The Confines of the Great Void.

The exhibition attracted more than 160,000 visitors in 45 days when staged at the art museum of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2019. Now it has come to the Sea World Culture and Art Center in Shenzhen, South China's Guangdong province, and will run through Nov 7.

While at this exhibition, Erlich provides different perspectives for people to see illusion and reality. The artist is adept at creating daily scenes in his work, and makes the audience rethink about what is real and what is false.
