A permanent two-parts installation for the former Kinma Military Hostel (ALIEN Art Centre)


Crossing is a two-part multimedia installation. Taking the history of Kinma Military Hostel as its point of departure, it approaches time as a continuum. The first part is a time capsule: extracts from interviews with Kinma veterans are etched on transparent “timepieces”. Visitors can hold them in their hands, and reconstruct what this place represents for individuals, a nation and at time. A contemplative space awaits visitors in the second part. As sounds of Kaohsiung Harbour reverberate, drops of water glide across the darkness as specks of light . Concluding the experience, we invite visitors to reflect on the crossing that they are going through at this very moment. These micro histories will continue to grow in time.
