This event has ended.

Re-Re-positioning the Present is an exhibition curated by alumna Hsiang-Ning Huang in ISCP’s Project Space, featuring work by the contemporary Taiwanese artist known as “Shake.” The exhibition aims to address the complex political reality of Taiwan, historically located on the boundaries of different empires.

Re-Re-positioning the Present features a series of video installations where Shake employs unique Taiwanese topography as a metaphor to represent the island’s geopolitical history and present condition. The exhibition also includes archives and personal writings from the post-WWII period to the Cold War period, put together with the aim of representing the conflicts and ruptures that occurred during the process of redefining the imperial boundaries.

Shake’s work draws from a variety of sources such as historical archives, poetry and personal memoirs, and tries to reach identity, territorial, cultural and institutional issues.
