Boundaries 越界,2018


Boundaries was made during my residency at Tsung-Yeh Artist Village in the summer of 2018 and is currently on view at the 2018 Tainan International Foto Festival.

Just before harvest season, on the streets along privately owned orchards in Madou, Tainan, one sees fruits hanging over fences and walls that mark the border between private and public territories. According to the law, the fruits are private property so long as they remain on the trees. In Boundaries, the artist performs an intervention on photographic prints that depict “trespassing fruits” and creates a diptych that combines the notions of physical boundaries and boundaries of the photographic medium.
