With each reiteration, the renewal of urban spaces extends a ripple into the fabric of the individual and into the community. The city’s mesh of thick and twisty layers absorbs each wave, quietly and caustically, with time.
Despite cultural debasement and the stuff of personal tragedy for a deeply rooted few, the honking call of gentrification is heeded at each of its demands. The residents, if they stick to the reanimated flesh, are presented with an unfamiliar space outside of their own terms.
The latest in a series of exhibitions presented by WhyWhyArt and curated by Zane Mellupe-Goutard brings together 16 artists to explore urban renewal, erutuF is the beginning of a site-specific project to enable local interaction in the midst of this process in Nanjing’s Pukou district.
