Daily+― The Second Greater Taipei Biennial of Contemporary Art
Baptised as Daily+, the 2nd Greater Taipei Biennial of Contemporary Art unites 35 artists from France, USA, Austria, Luxembourg, Japan and Taiwan. Engaged firstly in the biennial, the Taiwanese novelist Yi-Chin LO writes along the exhibition venues, Nine Single Rooms Art Space and Northern Campus, and transforms the spaces full of winding alleys as interwoven reminiscences into Wall Climber, which mixes residual images of daily life with segmented work on what had happened here. The novel is the first invited work that lifts the curtain of the biennial. Taking the novel and exhibition spaces as reference of inspiration, the invited artists develop as a card game their projects in multiple direction, and the developing projects later become as well a reference to each other, through which the invisible relationship of linkage is thus gradually drawn out. Therefore, the novel based on the exhibition sites and the artworks referring to the novel ― both create intertextually between artwork, text and site a sort of multi-level dialogue from which is generated a significance network of inter-reference, similar to a parchment-like invisible text, full of layers of overlapping and accumulated traces. Derived from the daily life, the Daily+ is neither translation nor representation of the daily; it is not a clean break from the daily routine either. Rather, it signifies that in the different slices of reality stands a subject of art creation who, by means of various art practices, deconstructs and reconstructs the daily in order to return to it anew. Out of the very returning can a subject reveal the originality of the daily. In other words, keeping a distance from the daily life, a subject is thus able to discover in the relationship of dependency some points of reference, of substantiality and of transcendence, and to further transform the daily into infinitive resources for creation. As a folding mark cut slightly on the inner of the daily, the daily+ diverges the dimension of the daily to the unknown, to a place seemingly close yet out of reach, and endows the daily with a future never expected. Thus, we hope to unfold a multi-dialogue between art and daily life, and at the meantime, through a series of forums and workshops, to reveal progressively the "daily of artist", and finally to invite spectators to stroll in a wrinkled space of imagination and thought so as to observe each layer of daily life, diverted, metamorphosed, or transformed. The more the daily becomes the daily+, the more the daily+ becomes the daily.
Welcome to Dadaocheng
Are you tired of the hustle and bustle of big cities? Or are you bored with your mundane life? Why not go on a tour to the old city district right now and experience the past in the present! Dadaocheng is situated along Tamsui River. The name was originated from the big open grounds that were used to sun-dry rice. During Qing dynasty, Taiwanese tea that was exported to other countries built up an excellent reputation. Along with convenient transportation, more and more foreign merchants came to Dadaocheng to do trades and establish business points. Therefore, the neighborhood of Daodaocheng Wharf gradually became the commercial hub of Northern Taiwan. Later on, problems occurred, such as local residents moving away and the siltation of the river, the past glory can no longer be seen. Yet, the relics of the past are still preserved intact in this historical district. Strolling on the old streets, you will see the magnificent and elegant quasi-baroque buildings as well as traditional, simple Minnan street shops. There are also diverse old trading companies that sell souvenirs. Therefore, many tourists visit on holidays to experience the nostalgic atmosphere specific to the old Taipei. Each year, when Lunar New Year is approaching, Dihua Street will turn into a bustling street of New Year goods. Mayor of Taipei City, Ko Wen-je said: “From old historical buildings through unique old streets to all kinds of innovative elements, Dadaocheng is not only a busy old town, but also a living and vibrant urban museum that breaks through spatial imitations.” These words are probably the best portrayal of Dadaocheng. A reminder: Dadaocheng mostly sells breakfast and lunch. Some restaurants close when everything is sold out. If you want to try some delicacies there, remember to go early. Everything will be gone if you arrive too late.
Lanyu Region: Tourism Information
To many Taiwanese people, Lanyu is a distant legend. The local indigenous people – the Yami people (a.k.a. Tao), follow their traditional knowledge rigorously, and lead a simple life. Compared to other indigenous peoples in Taiwan, the Yami people (Tao) experienced no mass migration, and hence preserve most of their traditional lifestyles. Today, even though the younger generation has chosen to leave the Island for work and choose to live in concrete houses, many traditional seniors still adhere to their traditions and lead a carefree life close to nature. Perhaps it was the eve of the tourist season when we landed on Lanyu, as there were not many tourists yet. The slower pace of life allowed us to relish the local lifestyle. Upon alighting from the plane, we were received by the warm hospitality of the southern islands. One can’t help but slow down, casting away the hustle and bustle of the city for the time being. Along the circular island road, one can often see the locals sitting casually, chatting and sipping tea, or the seniors sitting at their doorsteps, enjoying the sun and doing nothing. Their carefree attitude towards life is something the city dwellers could not possess. When you simply pass by the shops, you’ll be welcomed by warm greetings, and new friends are made as conversations strike up. Though it was just a few days, the trip was very fruitful. Besides the beautiful sceneries, I also experienced the human touch, which seems to be missing in the present technological era.
