Emerging Invisible / art installation
The sub-venue of 2015 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism& Architecture is located in “XiPu New Residence”, LongGang District, ShenZhen. The site bears particular regional characteristics of GuangDong Province, featuring a Hakka walled village, which is the ancestral home built by the pioneers of Lee Clan who first migrated to the Southern China during Tang Dynasty. Centering the ancestral hall, houses in the village are developed in two perpendicular directions. Watchtowers can be found on two corners of the site while a half-moon shaped pond and a grain-sunning ground sit at the front. Our project, specifically, borrowed one of the old houses, and turned it into an herbal tea house for the community in response to this year’s theme “co-living”.
Our initial intention is to substantiate people’s perception of the old house.
A kind of brownish black medium was inserted into the old house, taking half of the space, so that people would experience a juxtaposition of strangeness and familiarity.
Neat but not “new”, clean but “dusty”.
Erosion, roof tiles, obscured dust, yellow mud, old wood, hazy light…
When people walk pass by the alley of this walled village and eventually step into this old house, they would come to get along with the subtle things that have been existing with us the whole eternity.
Here the invisible begins to emerge.
