Now living and working in Taiwan.

 

 

     Born in Taiwan, 1992, my family was one of the survivors from the 921 earthquake that took place on the 21st of September in the year 1999. I witnessed the restoration of our home. Between 2014 and 2016, I started running an art space called‘ No.5, Lane 18 ’in Tamsui. I was focused on curating exhibitions about contemporary art and popular culture. Through out the execution of the exhibition, I extended my understanding about what 'community' means to the public.

 

      What I am actually interested in has always been space realization and collective memory.I am used to familiarizing myself into communities that are marginal and creative in the environment where I live along with the memories that the community cherishes throughout their lives. I believe everyone is a container of history. Through my art I try to rebuild and collect memories. In the end, the result is  abandoned or invisible spaces and the goal is to connect people with different lifestyles.
