Seven Days

Artist: Wang Haichuan
installation | 2013

The Chongqing Copper Cash Manufactory’s workshops, built on blueprints by Soviet experts, have been demolished. Its tube-shaped apartments were retained, but they too began to be demolished after 2001. Over seven days, collecting furniture discarded by former residents, the artist creates a confession room and other configuration —odd arrangements manifesting cracks between life and power.
