Title: ANCHOR POINT/MOORING POINT
Period: 2023.05.26- 2023.05.28
Venue: Room 919 & 920 in 台北喜來登大飯店(Sheraton Grand Taipei Hotel)
Globalization has not only shortened the distance between countries, but also let us slightly ease the tension between anchors and moorings through technology, culture, and environment. Dots are connected into lines, stretched, shrunk, twisted, and entangled, as we wander from anchor points to mooring points, leaving evidence of living. The action of traveling can be one of the best proofs of that.
Cross-country, or long-distance movement, makes the concept of home even more complex. What is home? Is it a family? Is it a house? Or is it the bed that you have been lying in since you were a child? Home is a very old concept. Not only is it a place to settle, but it is also a relationship that gives people a sense of belonging. People can live in a place without a place to belong. This sense of belonging, like an anchor point, can hardly be affected when anchored. In this exhibition, five artists from different countries and cultural backgrounds share their thoughts on “anchor points and mooring points”. From different perspectives, they experimented with their own sub-topics and tried to elaborate on their experiences in made-on-site artworks during their residency in Taiwan.
For many people, the word a Drawing Workshop probably represents a preparatory drawing for a painting. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce the richness of the concept of “drawing” in contemporary art, and to give students the opportunity to experience drawing in a different way than ordinary sketching.
Venue: Taiwan Taichung Feng Yuan Senior High School
FREYAalt presents the solo exhibition Container with Hole by Kyohei Fujio!Hacking the way the containers are used and focusing on the spaces inside, the artist performs a series of performative readings and actions centering around waste, playfully provoking us to look inside these metal boxes, a semi-public space we use every day. Through urban interventions, a kind of peephole is opened for what we do not want to see through the same containers that are home to the concealed cycles of collecting, relocating, building and undoing. In his practice that exposes our double standards, for Fujio, every hole creates space for the next potential.The exhibition can be visited everyday between 23-31 May (except 28th of May), during the hours 14.00-20.00 and the opening will start at 17.00 on the 23rd.
*On the 31st of May, last day of the exhibition, we will host a participatory performance by the artist Kyohei Fujio. Details soon.

Once upon a time — exactly one hundred and fifty years ago, to be precise — Japan presented itself for the first time as one nation during Vienna’s World Exhibition. “Once Upon Now 1873-2023” (OUN) is a performative video and sound installation from the artist Johanna Riedl, based on this 150th anniversary. For this occasion, the installation “OUN” introduces a contemporary position that acts as a platform for intercultural exchange. As a pavilion of togetherness in Tokyo, the installation plays with different shades between cultures while working with speculation to blur the borders between the West and East in a globalized age.
むかしむかし、正確にはちょうど100と50年前、 日本パビリオンは初めてウィーン万国博覧会にて1つの国として登場しました。「Once Upon Now 1873-2023」(OUN) はアーティスト、ヨハンナ・リドルによる、この150周年をもとにしたパフォーマンスビデオ、およびサウンドインスタレーションです。 この機会に、インスタレーション「OUN」は異文化交流の場として現代的な立場を提示します。 このインスタレーションは、東京に位置する共生の場のパビリオンとして、グローバル時代における西洋と東洋の二元論を曖昧にするために「もしも」のシナリオを扱いながら、さまざまな文化色を奏でます。

Hibiki Yamada (GAP M1 student) participates in the following exhibition.
New exhibition “Dérive feast” curated by waxogawa and Jingwen Li opens in the basement floor of Yokohama Civic Art Gallery.
The exhibition attempts to drift away from Tokyo where the centre of art scenes is located. Featuring young artists mostly, the exhibition proposes a possible feast days at Yokohama Civic Art Gallery, which is a public facility. In his book ‘A Movable feast’, Ernest Hemingway described the fast-changing challenges of literature arising from within the bustle of Paris. Paris as a rigid ground and the America as the birthplace of the White Cube… The vacillation between these two axes, as Hemingway mentioned, is mapped onto the Tokyo-Yokohama axes, among the collaboration with waxogawa and Li Jingwen.
we could leave Paris for a while (…) Maybe away from Paris I could write about Paris (…) “I remember everything. Sometimes he was right and sometimes you were right. I remember the lights and textures and the shapes you argued about.” (…) we were young and nothing was simple there, not even poverty, nor sudden money, nor the moonlight, nor right and wrong nor the breathing of someone who lay beside you in the moonlight. ーー E.Hemingway ‘A Moveable Feast’
