:The 561st Hour of Occupation
Taiwan, 2014, 7 min
It was the first time that the students had occupied the Taiwan's parliament for 585 hours which was later referred to as the Sunflower Movement in 2014. The artist entered the parliament, slowed down the playback speed of the National Anthem and reverse it. The linear scan of the unoccupied chamber enables us to review the objects that previously do not belong to this place; for example, the video cameras on tripods, backpacks, banners, posters and the oil paintings created on-site. In other words, this space fosters non-linear senses of time and history.
