The artist Song Dong, one of the most inventive figures in contemporary Chinese art, has turned the contents of his mother's former home in Beijing, which was also his childhood home, into the installation titled "Waste Not.
These are all everyday life objects collected by Song Dong’s mother over the span of fifty years - clothes, books, kitchen utensils, toiletries, school supplies, shopping bags, rice bowls, dolls… That’s quite unusual. I like keeping stuff too, but not that and not like that…
“Waste Not” was exhibited at the New York Museum of Modern Art.
