Tseng

Tseng created human sculptures in the shape of hills, reflecting the coexistence relationship between

humans and nature.

NO POVETRY

Life is a circle. Tseng is working on a new series with the ASF topic, in which he wants to reshape “food waste” into natural scenery. Compared with countries facing a crisis in food supply, food-waste is a certain expression of abundance; and the artist paints and reshape these food wastes into the landscape not only reflecting on whether the fundamental needs of human existence have been surplus, but also presents an imbalanced state of resources.
