Also in oversea magazines, such as Theatrex Asia (Singapore) and Performing Art Forum (Macau) ), etc. In 2016, Lin is elected to be one of the Creative Talents of Bamboo Curtain Studio, and will have his residency for 2 months starting from March 1st.
During his residency, Lin, Chen-wei considers himself as a “recorder” much more than a “creator”. In his impression, there are different South-east Asian histories interwoven in Guandu, Zhuwei, Bali, Tamsui areas: Tamsui Dan chiya pong derived from Phú Quốc in Vietnam and the memory of the National Revolutionary Army in Hunan; one of the ancient names of Guandu is “Castillo”, where the Spanish from Manila had once stayed; A lot of Vietnamese eateries open around Zhuwei community nowadays while there are many foreign spouses come from Vietnam. Lin’s ideal residency is to initiate the experimental action of continuously creating “South-east Asia community museum” – to let the stories from South-east Asia around Taiwan be recorded, developed, and thinking of the possibility to build a South-east Asia community museum formed with “the memory of water” in Zhuwei.
