We have revisited the projects that BCS has undertaken in the past 20 years, and sorted them out into 4 categories to help the public understand our work: 1) alternative space, 2) art intervention, 3) art factory, and 4) artist residency. Each of these 4 categories may exist as an independent theme, but is at the same time inseparable from one another.
Mending the Broken Land with Water” is a sub title of this project. It means water is essential to life, and it has the ability to cross borders, connecting and gathering people who are concerned about the land we live on, as well as issues of urban development and boundless expansion. —Wu Mali
