Kang Ya-Chu - Dirt Carpet #4- Massive Manufacturing, 2017, bricks, wasted brick ash, Chittagong, Bangladesh

The concept is based on the issue of the garment factory building that collapsed in Sava Bangladesh in 2013. The workers were required to continue their job in a dangerous environment, and it killed over a thousand employees eventually. Those employees are almost young women. The site-specific installation was constructed with a large number of bricks and wasted brick ash on the floor with the repeating image of sewing garment tailors. It brings out the awareness of human rights and environmental security that refers to the problems of modernization of the massive production around the world. The audiences were welcome to walk on it at the end of the exhibition.
