重新破裂 Re-rupture
單頻道錄像裝置 Video installation

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.

尋找蘇萬欽 A Letter to Su Wanqin

The photo in A Letter to Su Wanqin originally was the souvenir photo of Chen Wanyin’s grandfather. This is a kind of technology popular in the 1970s. People can choose the pictures that have already been painted in the photo studio and then synthesize the photo by clipping figure’s headshot. Due to the production method, the same body and background will appear in different families’ souvenir photos. “Su Wanqin” is the first same souvenir photo from Internet. Mr. Su Wanqin, 103 years old now, is a witness of Taiwan history who participated the war in China as a Japanese soldier when he was young and now is the oldest Nationalist Party member alive. I found the history memory from the beginning of family photo of Chen Wanyin. The artist copied the letter written by Chen Wanyin to Su Wanqin and showed it with the souvenir photo without figure’s headshot.



麥克風試音:致信黃國峻 Microphone Test: A Letter to Huang Guo-Jun
單頻道錄像 Video
The Microphone Test series is named after writer Huang Guo-Jun’s work Microphone Test. Two months before Huang committed suicide, he wrote an essay in epistolary style titled“To Mother,” in which he expressed his intention to kill himself to his mother. The writing style is filled with black humor and expressive quality, but he killed himself two months after he wrote this letter, and he did not leave any suicide note. 
Microphone Test: A Letter to Huang Guo-Jun is a video letter to Huang Guo-Jun. Through conversations with Huang’s works created before he died, the letter depicts private family memories of three good friends, and attempts to portray what in fact belongs to my, or perhaps everyone’s memories through the memories of these others. Or perhaps, what is important is not whose memory it is, but the process that memory is constructed and viewed. I invited Yuan Zhi-Jie, Chen Liang-Hui, and Lo Tien-Yu to go back to the event site, and reenvisioned their memories in front of the camera. Eventually, I substitute the people in the video with animated figures drawn in lines, in accordance with my past creative methods, and leave only the background shot by the camera.
Chen Wan-Yin cooperated with Hsu Che-Yu as a co-creator on “Microphone Test”, mainly serving as the scriptwriter and voiceover of the film.

Phrases are picked out From Taiwan Jiu Shi Tan (Taiwan Old Tales) by Lin Dongchen first published in 1979 April 15th and films are shot in the location mentioned in the book. In this book, the author depicts Taiwan during the times of Japanese occupation from second hand information. I have never been through those period, hence for me they only exist/non exist in a elusive and ghostly form, but always on my mind.

There was a news about building a statue of Chiang Kai-shek at Zhongshan Park in 1970. I return to Zhongshan Park, and the fictitious spirit is summoning me.

There are 30 drawings in this work, and each one corresponds to a real news event. Most of the events are murder cases. I wrote down the committed date and place near by the drawings, the imagined drawing based on news content.

The male and female characters re-create daily events in an architectural space. Through a CCTV-like monitor, the artist tries to create visual sensations in ordinary events.

This is a more expressionistic work by Hsu, who here places his focus on the recent “contagious panic”. What arouses panic is not the event itself, but the interface.

The artist arrives at the scene for footage, or searches online about the location of the event, or simply re-creates the scene based on the photo appearing in the newspaper, and depicts the event from a first-person angle of the “main character” in a fictional or diary style. Using his fictional characters, he tries to compile different kinds of events into a grand but abstract story.

The artist finds several news stories on domestic violence and illustrates the events in great detail. But in retelling the story, events become unrecognizable, with only an explanatory interface left.


許哲瑜Hsu Che-Yu
Hsu Che-Yu was born in Taipei in 1985.Earning his master’s degree from the Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts, Tainan National University of the Arts. Hsu Che-Yu works as an artist who primarily creates animations, videos and installations that feature the relations between media and memories. What matters to the artist is not simply the history of events traceable through media, but also the construction and visualization of memories, be they private or collective.
