Socialism is Good is a site-specific work. Following research related to the vegetation at Cass Sculpture Foundation, Zheng Bo chose to use red, yellow and green plants to form a popular political slogan banner from China in the 1950s: ‘Socialism is Good’. The work will remain in the grounds of Cass Sculpture Foundation for an extensive period of time, allowing it to evolve. During the winter months, the characters of the slogan will blur as the plants wither. In the spring, legible slogan will reveal itself again as the plants regenerate. These plant-based installations bearing political slogans were common features of Tiananmen Square, often appearing as part of the National Day celebrations before the 1990s, as a vehicle for political propaganda.
