Plant and Waste
2018│type, objets, texts, dimension variable

Through the materiality of type made of lead alloy and the unique sign system of Chinese characters forged on the lead block, the artist tries to construct a spatial perception in miniature. The site of old dormitories is interwoven of scents of gathering and distraction, discard and governance. The tiny lead type from discours of different dimensions of interpretation is embedded on the surfaces of the building and further forms a floating network of significance with, or sometimes beyond, all sorts of the materials in the site.
