where are we going?

please be invited to 
IMAGINE PEACE FESTIVAL 2015
19th & 20th Sept. 2015, Treasure Island, Pui O Beach, Lantau
        sketch for 'where are we going' installation for IMAGINE PEACE 2015
for this inspiring festival volunteers and i will create an outdoor installation made from 1000 shoes collected over the last four months on beaches of south lantau. set in the beautiful scenery of pui o wetlands and named 'where are we going?' or '1000 lost soles' this installation is part of my trash-land-art series which i have been persuing since 2011. 


the over-production and over-consumption of our throwaway-society has become out of hands:
3 beaches + 19 volunteers + 7 hours = 1000 shoes! 
we find human products not only in the vicinity of their owners, shops and homes, but thrown into the country-side, buried in the earth and floating in the sea. by colour coordinating and sorting these products i'm using the same method as the advertising: i'm making sh*t look good! yet i'm not trying to sell you anything. i want you to buy into the awareness to value more and waste less! trash-land-art not only challenges our perception of art but also our behaviour as consumers and reminds us of our responsibility for mother earth.

                                                                 rendering for 'where are we going' installation for IMAGINE PEACE 2015


apart from my installation there are great musicians, yoga teachers and fire spinners who all perform for you. there will be wholesome vegetarian food. there will be awesome workshops. there will be time and space to share. so if you like to experience the beauty of hongkong's countryside, listen to great life music, see art, make art, dance, sing and feel free then this is your festival! pack your tent and come to IMAGINE PEACE 2015! links for workshop schedule, line-up and tickets see below.
