Therefore those who explain the Odes, may not insist on one term so as to do violence to a sentance, nor on a sentance so as to do violance to the general scope. They must try with their thoughts to meet that scope, and then we shall apprehend it. Chinese Classics, ‘The Works of Mencius’, V, part I, iv. 2 (1861).

The Legacy of James Legge

Palace of Puzzles James Legge 1815 – 1897 Born in Huntly


Missionary + Translator in China 1837-1873


Professor of Sinology Oxford

James Legge left his Huntly birthplace in Aberdeenshire as a missionary to the Far East. Believing that he had to understand those he sought to convert, he learned Chinese and began a lifelong study of the language and culture. Later, occupying the first chair of Sinology at Oxford, he published 50 monumental volumes of the Chinese classics – including the scripts of Confucius and the i-Ching. This opened routes of exchange that seeded early modern globalisation.

Deveron Arts works with the visible history and identity of Huntly, a small market town in the north east of Scotland, to make and show new work. For Deveron Arts, the town is the venue; studio, gallery and stage for a wide range of visual and performing arts that take place in a variety of found spaces, rather than any specified buildings or galleries. Here, the town stimulates creativity and research while people meet to talk and exchange ideas. We invite artists who may be local or from anywhere in the world to engage in projects that are of both local and global concern. Their works form Deveron Arts’ evolving collection, which can be seen in shops, offices and other spaces around the town. The Utopia Group (Deng Dafei and He Hai), from Beijing, are in residence with Deveron Arts between July and Sept 2009. During this period they are developing a body of artworks celebrating one of Huntly’s famous sons – the great sinolgist and translator James Legge. The work includes a town-wide treasure hunt, an exhibition of drawings and a public ceremonial parade.
