Villagers In Memory

Xanthiums, 12*28*38cm*36,12.2019

The community of my village was like a sturdy house, the villagers as the bricks played significant roles in strongly supporting the community house, and the relationship among them was very close. I remember the local people usually made mud bricks for constructing their houses when I was a kid. However, people can easily buy bricks from factories, now. This consumer lifestyle has seriously influenced the close relationship of the local villagers.   

I have made bricks with xanthium by hands in a conventional way that I learnt before by observing my neighbors’ making process. All the bricks laid out orderly in the farmland symbolize the local farmers standing upright in my memory. And the relationship among villagers was like the hooks of xanthiums, closely hooking up with each other.
