"鲲 . 池" 项目由一个再野化的场和分别两端的两个对象组成。“再野化”强调提升生态系统韧性和维持生物多样性。 位于入口处的那条孤独飞行的鲲,看远,看近,也看小。位于废弃老宅角落的池,池水慢慢溢出,坚持好好浇水,让很多人都能享受到这座荒园的美丽。“鲲”是从远古追今的想象之翼,“池”是未来考今的读取接口。


The project "KÛN∙CHÍ | MIRROR FOR KUNMING LAKE - garden" consists of a micro-processed i.e rewilding field and two objects at either end. "Rewild" emphasizes improving the resilience of the ecosystem and maintaining biodiversity. The lonely Kun flying at the entrance can be seen far, near and small. The pool at the center of the abandoned courtyard, with water slowly overflowing, watering droughty earth, so that more people can enjoy the beauty of this deserted park. "Kun" i.e. big fish, is the wing of imagination from ancient myth, and "pool" is the interface for reading the future. 

The two artists deliberately chose this concave wasteland located at the end of Sanpai in the middle of Haiyan Village, which is aside the main axis of the stone slab that was laid more than 300 years ago. It looks like a yard, but the irregular and intricate facades around make it look more like a vacant lot.The newly built temporary parking lot on the edge of the road can be easily passed by and ignored, but it is this complex state that makes it more real, or, to put it more fashionably, more “wild”. How to "create" in such a deserted field inside a historical preservation zone, is an environmentally sensitive project in China.The two artists respectively use their own methods to micro-process each stone and rock, adding and subtracting, but  also leave it to time and weather to shape the ensemble. This process is the best way for artists to establish relationships with the village, villagers, and visitors. We ask questions like How to best design in the hometown of flowers through "gardening"?  How to to reconstruct the connection between the village and Dianchi Lake, by water or air, or create a more practical and simple sense of inter-dependence. Confronting this new series of narrative histories, the final form of the two artists' creations is often only the intermediate state of the works, which may be the most fascinating and challenging dimension of their participation in an art residency.
