The exhibition will present a new body of photographic based works across the two rooms and connecting corridor and will be based on the experience of a period as Artist in Residence at the Taitung Museum in September 2014 and related works from recent projects in Japan and the UK
During the Taitung residency period a number of photo performance works were made at various locations at night on the south coast. These works will be arranged in one of the gallery spaces as a narrative showing a series of human interventions and actions derived from signaling systems and messaging codes as well as making reference to traditional calligraphic mark making. Encoded in the various messages and marks will be references to the changing nature of our seas and coastlines due to a combination of climatic change and increasing levels of pollution and the relation to mythology, folklore and history. The relationship with the stars and the moon will also play a large part in the construction of the images and the overall narrative.
