       Wang Luyan art museum opened in 2017 is located on Moon Island on the Yalu River border between China and North Korea. It is only 500 meters away from the Korean border. It is the only art museum in the world which is located on the border. The exhibition area of the museum is 1400 square meters, and the outdoor exhibition area is 1900 square meters. Wang Luyan created large-scale works especially for the context of the museum. His sketches and manuscripts from the 1980s to now systematically demonstrate the artist's thinking mode, world view and creation methodology, and his speculative artistic concepts and unique artistic language are reflective and enlightening.

The individual uses vertical and horizontal transformations of each other-life is death, upright and inverted-the active world is the inverted world, and subject and projection-essence is non-essence, to confuse their choice and judgment.
