[ISEA2006] Artist Statement: Xing Danwen – disCONNECTION (2002-2003)

Artist Statement

Theme: Pacific Rim. Venue: Container Culture, South Hall

disCONNECTION uncovers, through Xing Danwen’s unforgiving eye, the story underneath mountains of electronic garbage. Xing traveled many times to southern China to photograph a population of over 100,000 living on the fringe of life, recycling thousands of tons of electronic waste dumped in China by the West.
