Photos of bottles found in an Amsterdam canal, vintage jewelry, antique coins and videos on light are displayed at a chic show at a new art space in Sanlitun, an entertainment hub in Beijing.

TRU-M, founded by Malaysian-American interior designer Michael Goo and Chinese fashion designer Wang Chu, opened in February with a show of large-scale installations focusing on the relationship between people and public spaces. The current show that opened on Wednesday assembles old things to create a sense of history in a modern way.

"We want to tell people that art is not distant from life. Art is life, and life is art. We are trying to do the show in a way that can attract youngsters," Goo says of his decision to set up an art space in a shopping area surrounded by hip stores instead of at an art hub in the city.

The show is divided into three parts to present the classical aura-bottles, vintage jewelry and antique coins.
