Xian Zheng: "My research direction focus on living space, between urban, suburb and village, try to apply arts to intervene and promote a better local living for future. Drawing a map is my own language while abroad, for more positive communication and more authentic investigate in local. I rotate perspective angle, to present facades on both sides of streets just on one map, as if could walk on this map, which also update the traditional China painting of multi-point perspective.
I walked and recorded streets one by one in Marchtrenk, and have continued drawing three months till now, at least four hours per day. Marchtrenk is a typical suburb residential area between Wels and Linz, with five green kindergartens servicing like 20 thousand local habitants. Global urbanization, new urbanism, “smart growth”, “Der neue Rurbanismus”...... Where we should live or could get a better living in the future?
