Soil Memory -- Can we feed with each other?
Soil Memory — Can we feed with each other? 2019, Ye Liu and Jiaxin Sui, RMIT gallery, Melbourne
The project soil memory is a live installation which explores moderate activism to respond to the ecological civilisation development. It consists of two parts, an art map describing the changing in utilisation ratio of agricultural production after the national revolution from 1949 to 2019, and a live planting container which represents a new production cycle. .
All of the materials in this work are related to the rice, such as the grain of rice and cooked rice, rice powder for glue, rice paper for base of map, rice husks for nutrition, rise husks ash for the planting container. The use of these materials describes a process of reuse, reproduce and recycle, which indicates the artist’s expectation of a sustainable development in resource utilisation in China.
If you don’t mind, could you please use the cement cup to water the seeds, feeding with each other?
