Introduction of works

“Everyday Life Geography” is to trace everyone’s memory of sense and sensibility to a “place”. This “Geography” concept explains how to build the emotional connection between people and the place, how to recognize, remember and imagine the place, how a group of people combine the new and old daily life into “our place”. To find the answers, the artist built the 3D map by colour and geometry not based on Google Map, but on the photography of Google Map, he transformed the relationship between himself and geography. In the process of “building and deconstructing” and “deconstructing and re-building”, experience the progress of “destroying”, “withdrawing” and “recovering” repeatedly. The artwork, such as a sketch, presents the panic he has been through while transforming the time and location, and keeps the traces while he first met the place.

 

The Work “Nanyang Road” is based on the time line of 2016, recorded the easily forgotten subtle changes in everyday life. The artist pieced together the relationship and existence of himself and city in between different people, things and objects. These memories involves the transforming of space, time and the condition between relative people and things. However, in this work he presents the city where somebody else has lived.

 

Wen-Tsao Lin used to prove his existence and ownership of a place in a “Romanticism” way. And once again you will find it in this work. “After I move into  where I am in this city, I put my luggage down and place my laptop on the desk.”, he described. He then realized that he was anxious and possessive of the place. This impression might bring others a picture which recorded the emotional complex inside and outside when encountering a place.

The “Step by Stamp” project started from Tainan in September 2019, cooperated with one of the top and historic Tainan manufacturers “Shiny Stamp” to present the stories of handicraft masters in Tainan, Yilan and Taitung. The journey opens our eyes and sensation to discover more aspects of these towns.

 

“There is always a distance for everything around us.” Step by Stamp, Tainan

 

The streets in the city updates in pace with the timely requirement. The increasing traffic cut out people’s network. The modern apartments and more organized roads made the landscape look better, but busier.

 

In the meantime, if you walk into the alleys and explore it, you will find friendly people and traditional crafts and shops. Stop and feel the carefree living style here.

  

“Don’t forget our treasured mountain and sea when we are striving for our lives everyday.” Step by Stamp, Taitung

Reviewing the journey of 2020, the exhibition has been held in three places, Tainan, Yilan and Taitung. While the world has been through the pandemic which was caused by a tiny virus in the beginning, it makes us feel how unpredictable life is. Therefore we have to live in the present. Although we could not go aboard, we take the chance to travel in our home land. Wherever we have been, there is a little contribution from us. In the meantime, the local industries keep working hard with their sturdy foundation and years experience. This is Taiwan, a home with diligent people.

 

“Only when it becomes part of life, it can be passed on.” Step by Stamp, Yilan.

 

To stick to one thing years by years, like the craftsman to his craftsmanship, the perseverance is a kind of romantic thing of life. The speciality was passed on, there might be improvements and expansions, but developed with more aspects and most of all, the spirit continues. After all, when we look back, we realize the treasure is where we are, here in Taiwan.
