2019麻豆糖業大地藝術祭開幕表演！The opening performance of 2019 Madou Sugar Industry Art Triennial ！
「Echoes in Botany聆聽植物的喝采」
02/01 10:30am and 02/08 15:00
Presented as part of Madou Trienalle at Tsung Yeh Artist Village, Taiwan
Echoes in Botany is a site-specific sound and movement performance that reflects on the trees, plants, and architecture of Tsung Yeh. In response to late 19th-century human-driven migrations of plants both in Taiwan and North America, the work responds to the attempts and failures of “tropical paradise” created during the industrial age. The piece roves around the Chief’s house, which was the family residence of the Meiji sugar cane factory chief in Madou during the Japanese colonial period. The work confronts ideas around native, imported and exported plants, speaking to the transports of plants as connected to the movement of culture, commerce, ideas, and diaspora. Sound, technology, and movement are interwoven to investigate these plants and humans role as connected to the layered history of Madou.
