Transient Flows


Frontier Plaza
Treasure Hill Artist Village, Taipei
June 1–23,  2019


Like river waters flow from the past and present into the future, so does the way we write history. The Xindian River flows through the very heart of Taipei: it is its living memory and pulsating present.

For this project, Modelab invited visitors to create a new map of an old river based on thoughts, affections, memories and aspirations. This affective cartography charters subjective and objetive connections between places, imaginations, wishes and the busy life of an endless river.



對你來說,歷史是怎麼樣的呢?河域連結了過去、現在與未來,為我們撰寫一幕幕的歷史。新店溪貫穿台北的中心地帶,承載著生活記憶,連貫著當下的脈動。寶藏巖駐村藝術家Modelab在此誠摯邀請你參與駐村計畫的創作,依據自己的想法、感情、記憶和願望,為這條擁有寶貴歷史的河流,一同創造一張新的地圖。這張地圖聯繫著過往,見證新店溪在台北的歷史和未來之中所擔任的角色,同時會成為地域、想像和這條生生不息的河流之連結。
