Modern industrial products like electronics, copper water pipes and wires are manufactured and distributed in the city. Once they lose their original functions, they became waste, and are disposed of and abandoned by the city. In this exhibition, the artist collects, assembles and paints on these waste products, transforming them into new cityscape. Created by ready-made objects, his recent sculptures probe into the mutating city habitats.
