The Wandering Land
cooperative project with Yu Ching Wang / 2018
The Wandering Land was a collaborative and exhibition project. Took their personal memories and experience as the beginning, another artist and Jui-Tsz displayed the records through images and mixed media.
Tamsui was the place we lived and returned to every day; it was also a place for our emotional attribution. Tamsui River has brought the prosperity and development of this area; along the river to the right side of the estuary, Tamsui flourishes at the junction where the river meets the sea. While the emerging population relocates to the northern part of Taiwan, there is only one main road leads to the city center; because of this geographic feature, the road along the river and the metro become the arteries to go in and out of Tamsui. From the emotional connection toward the road of Tamsui to its geographic environment, further through geographic locations, roads, and traffic to transfer the abstract and emotional memories into personal experiences—the paths of leaving and returning. The core of the exhibition started from our perception and restatement geographically and historically toward the road, connected the narration of our experiences and memories, and presented it with our observation and imagination of the road.
