about this work
Li Jinghu collected concrete lumps from factories and residential structures, transforming them, with paint, into Chinese cabbages and watermelons. Titled 'Stone Feces' these works allude to Dongguan's past, an area once rich in crop lands which has been turned into a hub of factory production. The vegetation and crops which once nourished the population, no longer grow and have instead been replaced by the production of commodities used for international trade.
