The Green Walking Movement 遛白菜之绿色运动
The Green Walking Movement is Upgraded version of the Walking the Cabbage Project and is characterized by public group interventions. In January 2007, over a hundred people joined Han Bing in Columbia, South Carolina, and together made a 2 hour walk across town, past the Capitol building, the university campus, crowded streets and thoroughfares, as well as pubs, before returning to the Columbia Museum of Art for the opening of Han Bing's solo exhibition there. In April, 2008, Han Bing was invited to participate in the Asia Triennial Manchester with his Walking the Cabbage Project. At his solo show at The International 3, Han Bing's tri-channel video-installation showed footage from the eight-year performative intervention, The Walking the Cabbage Project, in China, Japan and the US. And on the streets of Manchester, he localized this interrogation of social class and sustenance, possessive individualism and conspicuous consumption, with 150 cabbage-walking Manchester folks - homeless people, housewives, grandparents, kids, gay activists, white collars, and immigrants, alike - taking Savoy cabbages (the English equivalent of Chinese cabbage and a staple food of the poor) on leashes for a three-hour walk across the city, inciting puzzlement, delight and much debate.
