Following issues on Green life in Berlin. From Kleigartenanlage Am Volkspark e.V., Interkultureller Garten Lichtenberg up to Vattenfall Wärme Berlin AG. Berlin has given several answers on how to live a green way. A film by Yilan Zeng.
Last August, my studio in “Iowa”, an artist compound in the Caochangdi Village in Beijing, was forcibly demolished. Beijing municipal government has implemented a large-scale policy to develop certain areas in 2017, and hundreds of thousands of people had been displaced. Since then, my life has entered a state of uncertainty. Slowly I calmed down, and every time I came to a place where I could sense something special, I made use of the items on the spot, maybe branches or debris discarded by people, and made a tent like this, a pyramid conical structure. Like a little “shrine”, sheltering my heart.
