Christine Park Gallery would like to congratulate Ting-Tong Chang on recent acquisition of his performance piece, Spodoptera Litura (2015) by Taipei Fine Arts Museum. 


Spodoptera Litura is a live installation work that was developed in collaboration with the Department of Entomology of National Chung Hsing University and biologist Tuan Shu-jen. During the three-day-performance that took place in Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Ting-Tong Chang sealed himself in a greenhouse with hundreds of caterpillars (Oriental Leafworm Moth) and wild cabbage plants. An ecosystem was formed within the installation: the caterpillars are cooked and consumed by Chang to sustain himself. His urine is gathered and distributed through a watering system, providing nutrition to the plants. Finally, the plants provide nourishment for the caterpillars. Meanwhile, a work station is built inside the installation. A series of drawings produced during the performance will be exhibited in chronological order.
