Art Trails: BCS as an Archaeological Site

February 26, 2017

Can you spot a row of chairs lining the roof ridge of BCS? What are they and why are they up there? One of the most important landmarks of Bamboo Curtain Studio is the line of chairs on the studio roof. Sitting on one of those elevated seats looking out to the Guanyin Mountain and Tamsui River, one could imagine him or herself on a journey faraway. The unique installation is artist WANG Te-Yu’s first outdoor piece titled “No. 30” from her “Come From Your Hometown“ series in 1998. “It is impossible to document the relationship between one and this space,” Wang stated about the piece, “Everything happens within a single moment. When it happened, it happened. Only the one in that moment knew what he or she encountered. The moment belongs to the individual alone. He or she would not know what it was like for the others. The encounter—visually, tactilely, and physically—became a personal experience. It would be a part of his or her own memory.”

BCS × Art Bus × Community

February 26, 2017

BCS invited artist CHOU Chien-Pang and his project, Art Bus—a traveling van with artists, artworks, and creative ideas as passengers—to join the local farmer’s market. The inside of the van served as an exhibition space, and the exterior a canvas for doodling and writing messages. CHOU’s stories and experiences traveling in Taiwan and other countries came into life via the presence and presentation of Art Bus.

Tadashi NOHARA in BCS

February 26, 2017

Japanese artist/director Tadashi NOHARA conducted two workshops during his residency at BCS. Amateur actors from diverse backgrounds were instructed to interview and engage in intimate conversations with each other. These individuals learned about each other’s childhood memories and values, and were able to understand one another through in-depth interactions. Footages collected from the workshops are materials to NOHARA’s film, screening at the rough-cut preview at BCS on 02. 25. 2017. The film looks at the different ways men and women interpret mundane events in daily lives, and has no established script. Actors were provided with mere background descriptions of the roles he or she would be playing, and were advised to improvise freely. The artist hopes that, by connecting with the sense of the everyday in the film, the audience would be able to develop their own perspectives on life.
