November 11th, 1970.
This is a piece of news about sitting statuary at Tai-Chung Park in 1970. I’m unable to understand the atmosphere at the times before I was born, but today, I feel the illusion. I return to Tai-Chung Park, and the fictitious spirit is summoning me. In this work, I answered the old history news. Every image of my work is from Tai-Chung Park, and the credit roll subtitles are derived from the old news video. Of course it’s not a memorial work. This history is not true for me; I can only sense i ...

Sighing Flowers and Shamisen
Phrases are picked out From “Taiwan Jiu Shi Tan” (Taiwan Old Tales) by Lin Dongchen first published in 1979 April 15th and films are shot in the location mentioned in the book. In this book, the author depicts Taiwan during the times of Japanese occupation from second and third hand information. The relationship between the film and word is only a simple matter of sense; the story comes back to life in none descriptive manner. I have never been through those period, hence for me they only ex ...

The Nameless Men
I use the title of one of my solo exhibition in 2011 “The Nameless Men” and add a line-through it, so “The Nameless Men” becomes the title of this exhibition. The meaning of “the nameless men” are the roles in my art; they are substitutes, neutral and non-personalities, always playing the roles of crime suspect and victim. My past works were always in accordance with news issues, and I used two of my friends’ figures ,Yuan Zhi-Jie and Cheng Liang-Hui, to re-perform the news stories. However, ...

Perfect Suspect
In the different series of my work, as with the newspaper story, I go to the scene of a crime to take photos or draw, and place a fictitious couple to act as victims. Through the clues of the figures, crime car, etc, various issues are composed as a story. I attempted to make the scene of mass media with the real people, fictitious roles and I myself. This is not a reconstruction of the issue, but a dramatization. It seems a real story in form, but the information cannot be verified. Therefor ...
