Work Paths until 2021


Projection-Mapping Installation






影像的素材來自於過去不同作品的再製,包括 2018年的《黑與白-馬來貘》、2019年的《武士與鹿》以及《石頭與大象》、2021年的《岩棺是不是棺》與《在聖堂裡的一場演出》。這些來自於其他作品的既有影像,在這裡成為影像的碎片,既呈現了藝術家透過個人行動路徑所串起的網絡,也如同當今網際網路的超連結方式,異質的場景彼此交織連結。




The artwork reveals Chia-wei Hsu’s creative path between 2019 and 2021 centering on several archaeological scenes and finings.  From 2018 to 2020, the archaeological team had successively discovered the intact foundation of the walls and graves as the remains of the Church of Todos los Santos.  The Fort Noord-Holland, rebuilt in 1642 from the original “Fort San Salvador,” used to stand in the area, while the archaeological traces found centuries later brought the artist’s exploration to the Dutch Governor’s House in Malacca built in 1641 and the war between Cambodia and the Dutch in 1643, before further expanding the interrelated network, out of an interest in archaeology, to different sites such as the underwater discoveries off Green Island and the Shinshe Stone Coffin in Hualien.  


The video features materials remade from Hsu’s previous works, including Black and White – Malayan Tapir (2018), Samurai and Deer (2019), Stones and Elephants (2019), Is the Stone Coffin a Coffin (2021) and A Performance in the Church (2021).  The borrowed clips become fragments in xxxx, which not only visualize a network stringed by Hsu’s personal creative path but also allow the inherently heterogeneous scenes to be interwoven as hyperlinks in the cyber world. 

The sound of the piece comes from the musical performance Hui Tak-Cheung composed for A Performance in the Church.  Originally taking place at the archaeological site at Hoping Island, the music edited in this version presents a co-performance between different archaeological scenes.
