In Book of Fan Shengzhi, the oldest agriculture book written around first century BC, Fan Shengzhi, the author and agronomist, said that "the essence of cultivation is to catch up with the right moment… After the start of spring, as the land thaws, the chi energy rises from the Earth and begins to flow, and the soil loosens for the first time".

The message of anticipation, unity of people and Earth delivered in the book have inspired a cross-cultural exhibition, Bon Moment, at the Red Brick Art Museum in Beijing where the works of 13 Chinese and French contemporary artists are on show to exchange views on shared topics, including the relation between men and Earth, the unknown, loneliness and death.
