The two videos that comprise this work were shot separately. Two actors were not shown the script (what they were going to perform) in advance until the moment immediately before shooting. Finally what videos presents is the 100 minutes “long take” of impromptu performance, the actors in it were continently using various emotion, actions and method to interpret their idea of “Taiwan.” Afterward I juxtapose two videos and play together, the relationship/conversation between two impromptu performances create an endless and unpredictable form of dialectical reasoning for me.
Created during the Taiwan’s centennial anniversary, this piece reflects my acknowledgment of Taiwan’s current situation, as well as my personal contradiction and anxieties... In the end, what is Taiwan?
