In 1995, there was a human-shape balloon on the top of Chongxing Bridge in Taipei, and there was also the attempt of suspending all kinds of items in the air, such as washing machine, boiling hot pot, the statue of Chiang Kai-shek, and sex doll, trying to crash them to the ground. But the plan failed eventually; nothing was destroyed. Before everything started, it ended because of the self-explosion of the human-shape balloon. The same year under Chongxing Bridge, there was also a large scale fight. The people present there that day slashing each other with iron rod or sashimi knife. When we found the people invovled, however, they told us it was actually a fight between political factions.
 
Re-rupture assembles two seemingly unrelated historical fragments: "People's Taxi riot" and "Taipei Breaking Sky." I invited Chen Wan-yin to write the script, and also invited five drivers who participated in the fight at the time to return to the event site, while hanging a guitarist Li Na-shao on the top of Chongxing Bridge to play music.
 
1995年,台北重新橋上空有一個人形氣球,並將各種物件,比方說洗衣機、煮沸的火鍋、充氣娃娃……等懸吊到高空中,並試圖將它們摔下、墜毀、堆成一座垃圾山。然而,因為技術與天候問題,氣球最後在短暫升空後即破裂墜落,計劃失敗了。同一年,重新橋下亦發生了一場大型械鬥,當天在場的人們,拿著鐵棒、生魚片刀,互相朝對方身上揮舞。然而,當我們找到了當事人,他們卻說,那其實是一場政治派系鬥爭。
 
《重新破裂》組合了「全民計程車械鬥」與吳中煒未完整實現的計劃「台北空中破裂」這兩個看似不相關的歷史片段。透過陳琬尹所撰寫的劇本,並邀請了五位當年參與計程車械鬥的運將回到事件現場,並將一位噪音吉他手(李那韶),懸吊於重新橋上方演奏。

During the process of collecting materials, I saw a small hill of debris composed of the remaining molds of the Window on China Theme Park, which is still left on that balcony to slowly decay: supposedly irrelevant matters that took place in different times are piled together, becoming a miniaturized national ruin as they are exposed to sun and rain.

在拜訪吳中煒老家的過程中,看見了由其父親吳二曲所製作的「小人國主題樂園」,翻模剩餘的殘骸所堆積而成的小山丘,直到現在仍擺放在那片天台,慢慢剝落損壞。不同時間所發生的、看似不相關的事物堆積成團,隨著日曬雨淋,成為一座縮小版國家廢墟。
