In the summer of 2002, I took part in the project of the ‘Long March (of the Red Army, 1934-36, referred to as the ‘Thousand-Mile Flee’ by the Nationalist Party, or KMT)’. A group of us undertook the drawn-out and gruelling journey, living the struggle and history of the Chinese Civil War. After surveying on-site to find shooting angles, I decided to photograph myself in the handstand position, and then displayed upside-down the large, black-and-white photos, in order to construct a disturbed imagery. Like most young people in Taiwan, I know little of this past, but what really interests me is the question of whether history could be rewritten. It might be a Quixote-like fantasy or wuxia romance in wanting to change the world. However the main reason to investigate the present Taiwan-China relation with art is not to illustrate the history or provoke ideological opposition. Through the contrast between the burden of history and our rebellious, wilful action, it intends to reveal the absurdity in life beyond human control.
