中国 China




The Chinese noun interpretation of "Terroir " is "a place's unique natural conditions, geographical environment and customs". When we mention the demise of Terroir , we probably refer to the process of some original natural landscape or human customs gradually going to the incomplete.This is a dynamic and uncertain stage, especially reflected in the structures that are experiencing rewilding.It makes the landscape marginal, and it is impossible to judge whether it is natural or artificial to occupy the discourse right of the landscape aesthetics, and triggers the imagination of the original appearance of the local conditions.Then the material fragments that constitute the local conditions are linked with the viewer's life experience, forming a new story, and becoming a supplement and comfort to the individual's private incomplete memory.This work tries to emphasize, extend and sublimate the demise process in Wulong Village, and try to interpret the homes of our ancestors and create a garden for contemporary people, in order to express critical thinking about the demise process.We collected a large number of abandoned construction waste in Wulong Village, and classified and recombined the waste according to the original construction order and the color of the surrounding landscape. Finally, the waste was placed on the extension surface we built in the center of the site, parallel to the walls and roof surfaces of the surrounding ancient buildings, to echo the dying housing structure and the existing village context. We regard the architectural waste plane (archive) after deconstruction and reorganization as a kind of montage, because this jumbled visual combination triggers associations between substances and their relationships, hoping to bring the viewer into the narrative of Wulong Village that can be combined with their self-consciousness, to recall a certain non-existent building, and to stimulate personal judgment on the meaning of the extinction of local culture.
