This exhibition explores the diversity found in natural environments and gestures towards man’s relationship with the natural world. Han employs a range of mediums including clay, pulp, soil and found organic materials to create an immersive installation reminiscent of a decaying forest filled with a variety of flora. Nestled within this landscape are a hundred clay sculptures which are symbolic of microorganisms that exist abundantly in nature. Although organisms like fungi and algae tend to go unnoticed, they play pivotal roles in the health and survival of natural habitats and ecosystems. The reliance that living organisms in nature have on one another is an apt metaphor for the symbiotic relationship between man and nature. Microorganisms Landscape expresses Han’s concern with the impact of human activity on the environment and the importance of protecting the rich legacies embodied in the tropics.
