Learning Curves/Lizhiwan Creek by Alessandro Carboni
Exhibition Watersheds, the narrative of the recycle process in a waterborne urban space, Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture. Position Gallery, 7 Dic 2013, Shenzhen
Few days ago, I explored the area along Lizhiwan Creek in Guangzhou on different geographical scales. I discovered paths along the creek and I met and talked with local inhabitants from Pantang village. This time of exploration and sharing, allowed me to collect materials, experiences and stories about the canal network in Liwan district and Guangzhou. During the exploration of some ruined part of Pantang village, I collected old bricks in which they are used for the creation of miniature map of the territory. The entire project attempt to create a visual, geographical, historical and personal point of view of Lizhiwan Creek and its current status. At the beginning of December, I would present an installation and performance at Watersheds exhibition – Urban Border, Bi-City Hong Kong/Shenzhen Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture 2013.
