From Buda and Pest, two old cities divided by the Danube, I looked for building fragments scattered around the churches in both cities. They were mostly left on the ground or in the gardens. Then I brought the fragments back to the museum in cart and washed them clean. After that, I placed the fragments in archival fashion on the self-made shelf with gold leaves and a wooden table. The source material for the oversized shelf and table came from the same material used for Taiwanese wooden architecture during colonial period. Through demolish and reproduction, it now takes on new function and meaning.

I decided to begin the journey from St. Stephen’s Basilica.
