The plastic barrels here were initially containers for chemicals. They are something normally we look without seeing. Liang burned the barrels before he let silkworms crawl all over. Scattered in the corner of the space, the deformed and cocoon-like barrels feature Liang’s profound reflection on social turbulence through a language for daily needs. In Silence, in which he converts materials to a language, is Liang’s intention to imply the overlooked humanity through objects’ attribution of being daily, inexpensive and fragile.
