Liebig12 & Month of Performance Art Berlin present:
curated by Yun-Ting Hung, Lan Hung, I-Chen Tsou
Taiwanese curators are invited to organise the exhibition (CON)TEMPORARY SPACE-TIME that focuses and presents on Taiwanese performance/action art in Berlin, european capital of art.Shifting time, dislodgeble space and static body, these three states transmit and reflect the need of performance art for acting as mist and dew or lightning.
The exhibition (CON)TEMPORARY SPACE-TIME intends to present a temporal coexistence with history, which is a concept of multi side streams outside historical context, that is generated from how the character of art and body in demand is positioned and interpreted.In the special historical background, the context of performance art in Taiwan can be separated into three parts: first, 1980-1990 before and after Abolishing Martial Law the ironic and judgmental reflection on political and social situation; second, 1990-2000 body and life the extreme test on body and relationship between art and life; third, after 2000 the flourishing of video the relationship between body and video.
The exhibition includes 16 artists and 24 artworks according to the above three sections.
The exhibition intends to present the diverse relationships between body and religious, Zen, civilisation, nature, social interaction and confronting repression and additionally shows how Taiwanese performance/action artists grow a unique performance/act art contextual brook with historical torrent.
