“Weapon of choice”
for Ar/t/chitecture Festival
Tainan / Taiwan
My sculpture as part of a sculpture park situated on an island in Tainan >>
The name fit perfectly the overall feel of my piece, through which I wanted to remind, that the most dangerous aren’t weapons nor bullets.
The most dangerous are ideas that influence the masses. Interesting to know, the island on which I placed my sculpture used to be a Japanese military base, in the times when Taiwan was under occupation.
Also, the color white resembles death in Chinese culture. “Weapon of choice” is part of a small sculpture park we set up during the festival.
Very exciting moment installing my sculpture with the biggest truck/crane I've ever seen. Plenty of emotions, not the easiest task, especially when you don't speak any Mandarin, but it worked. After that, painting in white and varnishing.
For dessert, an ultimate treat. To learn about how the organization of the festival looked like, what relationships were formed between the homeowners and the artists, the difficulties associated with the language and culture barrier, and finally about the results of their work, watch the documentary by Kuba Goździewicz, who documented this art meeting for the entire month within both the urban spaces and nearby villages. Enjoy!
