SONG DONG: WASTE NOT
From his family home in Beijing, to the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Waste Not is a transformative installation by one of China's pre-eminent artists, Song Dong. Conceived by the artist following the death of his father, the work represents his mother's process of mourning and remembrance. Consisting of the entire contents of her house, Waste Not reflects a journey of hardship and grief, resulting in a display of personal resilience and ultimately a celebration of life.
"Deeply moving... a work of art that is every bit as much about loss as it is about muchness" The New York Times
Coinciding with Waste Not is Song Dong's Dad and Mum, Don't Worry About Us, We are All Well, a survey of his work from the last three decades at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art. Join Song Dong and his family at 4A for an informal tour of his exhibition Dad and Mum, Don't Worry About Us, We Are All Well at 2pm, Sat 5 Jan 2013.
