Ma Haijiao - If We Delete Green, If We Start Caring About Plants
Ma Haijiao’s works are often expressions based on his personal observation after a long-term attention to a certain topic. His recent works focus on impacts of urban development that can be felt in our living environment, from a more collective perspective such as city architecture, environmental issues to more personal angles such as family life, and individual living condition.
For this exhibition, the artist turned his tentacles to the meaning of an colour. If We Delete Green, If We Start Caring About Plants takes "green" and "plant" as dual themes to unfold interweaving imaginations and narratives. The two channels of the video were respectively shot in a studio and a tropical jungle, presenting an intertextual relationship in terms of concept and presentation of "green" and "plants".
