iNGO project Rural Mix, the “Cookie House” presented original works of artists in Beijing. The venue was converted from an abandoned mansion located in Rose Manor, an idyllic-styled compound at near countryside of Beijing. The creatives renovated it into a freestyle showcases offering urbanized society an alternative choice to experience recreation. It would also be a platform to promo value of modern art.

The RuralMix is a long-term working brand to help people understand the value of nature aesthetic, environment protection and Eco-preservation. Therefore, the theme of Cookie House is the venue to showcase advance concepts. All artworks in house, such as oil paintings, ink paintings, sculptures, designing, digital media and films, are all matched to the idea.
Why name it the Cookie House? Somebody may ask.
“If you have a chance to watch the movie Matrix, those plots when Neo visits Oracle, you may wonder about why he keeps getting something like cookies from her. There are a lot of discussions about this already on the web. From our interpretation, it is a metaphor to bridge gaps of generation nicely. The term “cookie” is also a file to collect footprints while one surfers around the metaverse. Every one has a cookie on any web server to identify the digital journey . That is what art does for real world contemporary society.” However, don’t spend too much time online that causes the lost of self identity. Let the house of art to recover the lost aptitude for oneself, said by LKW. the founder of iNGO Group.
RuralMix leads the way to explore the concept of sustainability. Maybe it’s a little bit surreal. The Cookie House will be the brand in summer for creative culture, cinema, art movement and creative economy. It is the sequel of project Winter Garden in winter. People who are looking for something funnier than bored urban life can come and join in art and meet with real creators in person. It will be a great off-line experience that may enrich one’s life for good.
