It Follows

Join us for a preview screening of "It follows," followed by a Q & A session with Taipei Contemporary Art Center curator Bochun Hsaio.

"It follows" is curated by fellow TCAC curator Shih-yu Hsu, and features moving image work by Chia-Wei Hsu, Liu Yu, Kuo Yu-Ping, Tzu-Huan Lin and Wang Shao-Gang.

Human perception is mediated through an awareness of our architectural surroundings. Only the feeling of the present moment can be sensed. The recollection of the past has to be extracted and rebuilt in memories. Memories are invisible and intangible, yet no one doubts their existence. They are like ghosts, following us wherever we go and hiding themselves under skins, in buildings, or perhaps residing in the cyber geometry.

This exhibition features five Taiwanese artists born after 1980, into a time of drastic political and economic change in Taiwan. This selection of moving-image works traces the eerie side of the history of the island—at the same time disorienting us with a vision of a parallel narrative that is untold yet haunting.

Please note the screening is approximately 54 mins in duration. It follows will continue screening during Enjoy's open hours 29 November–8 December, beginning on the hour (i.e. 11: a.m., 12 noon, 1 p.m.)

This exchange between TCAC and Enjoy has been developed with the support of the Asia New Zealand Foundation, the National Culture and Arts Foundation, Taiwan and Creative New Zealand’s New Work to Asia Fund.

Presented by: TCAC
