This looks amazing – Chinese artist Song Dong presents “Waste Not”, his “labrinthine” life-as-art installation that pays homage to the power of things. For 40 years, his mother stockpiled shoes to bottle caps, empty toothpaste tubes and birdcages all in their small house in Bejing. When her husband died unexpectedly, the stockpiling turned into more of an obsession, as if the collection could offset her grief. A tale of attachment and loss, all illustrated by bowls, birdcages, and shoe laces. Now at MoMA until Sept 7th.
Full & Fancy finds from a girl in Brooklyn. Things that make you feel good.
