Three days before the forced eviction of the villages in Wang Chau, I tried to settle down the emotions of the villagers that they were unwillingly forced to separate from their homeland.

 

On-site materials were collected to improvise interactions and dialogues with the land and people. The soil was combed, the hair from villagers together with the wild grasses growing beside the graves was collected and interweaved to become a seed-like form.

 

Carrying the memories and yearning from villagers, these “seeds” became the fertilizer laying on their homeland where would soon be vanished. Yet, these “seeds” may immerse slowly, nurture their origin and connect deeply to their own memory.

Hairs from villages, wild grasses, soil, rocks, a comb
