Negotiating the Future

Sixth Asian Art Biennial

In the sixth Asian Art Biennial, titled “Negotiating the Future” and organized at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts in Taichung, Japanese artist group Chim Pom’s site-specific installation Street (2017) is an asphalt road that runs from the museum’s foyer through the main entrance to the street outside. This elevated roadway also served as a stage for sound artist Cheng Yi-Ping, also known as Betty Apple, during a block party. Street invokes the Sunflower Movement of 2014, when student and civic groups occupied the thoroughfares that surrounded the Legislative Yuan of Taiwan, and has become a channel that connects the art institution to the outside world.
