《漫遊者》雜誌邀稿創作

第8期台北「康定路與萬大路」特輯

"Flaneur Magazine" Invitation

ISSUE 8: KANGDING ROAD / WANDA ROAD, TAIPEI

雜草稍慢受邀為來自德國柏林的獨立雜誌《漫遊者》Flaneur Magazine 進行第8期台北「康定路與萬大路」特輯創作。並參與2019年秋季於柏林的世界文化中心HKW舉辦《漫遊者藝術節》工作坊與展出。

路邊牆角野生的雜草,祂們是尚未被正視,發現其價值的野生植物,未經公平審判就被責怪的植物。臺北的康定路有一群人就像雜草一樣,佇立街頭,被認為長在不該長的地方—「流鶯」,社會逃避面對卻真實存在的性工作者。流鶯的客人稱之「尋芳客」,某種程度上,這次的計畫扮演著尋芳客,在街頭上採集芳草煮茶,尋訪性工作者,探討社會對雜草和性工作者間微妙的關聯。

By observing and collecting plants that are otherwise seen a nuisance, the artist buildsintimate connections with the city and its inhabitants with whom and for whom she makesthe teas. For this project, she approached sex workers of Wanhua with her teas, as her research led to the discovery that society's view of weeds and sex workers are interlinked.
