Tidal Cornucopia 2015 Tayouan Guandu Sculpture Exhibition Taipei Taiwan
The coral in the work represents the ocean’s tides and the efforts being made by local people as they utilise science and technology while caring for this beautiful landscape. Whilst investigating the aboriginal people of Taiwan I discovered the importance of the diamond shape for them. As the opening of the Guandu Festival was during the ‘Month of Ghosts’ the work made offering to the ancient spirits, the ancestors of the Ketalagan people. Here where the river and ocean. The overall hope of the work is to combine contemporary and ancient, and create new ways of relating to this place.
