Orchid plants, bamboo
Working with a local organization of orchid growers in the Ao luek district to create a botanical installation from local orchid species, Zheng Bo’s “Life is hard. Why do we make it so easy?” will thrive in Thanbok Khorani National Park during the four months of the exhibition period. The installation’s title is inspired by Jon Jondai’s famous talk “Life is easy Why do we make it so hard?” Jondai is a farmer and one of Thai’s activist for sustainable living. The artist modified Jon Jondai’s statement to point out another aspect of the ecological crisis. Mankind has made lives too easy while making the lives of other beings too difficult; life on earth is not easy and is supposed to be hard. ภาษาไทย : คลิกที่นี่
