Waste Not

A couple of weeks ago we visited the Gwangju Biennale exhibition, but didn't take many pictures because the camera's batteries were dying. It was an interesting collection of contemporary Asian art, anchored by a survey of Chinese archival propaganda photography side by side with the undoctored photo sources, as well as a collection of Fluxus films and artifacts. Mindy did take some photos of an installation by Chinese artist Song Dong, titled Waste Not. It displayed the entire contents of her mother's house, over 30 years of accumulation, reflecting on the older generation's tendency to save anything that might be of use later, a holdover from times of scarcity. This should be a warning to all of you pack rats out there!
