TOFUD # Trolley 0504 WanHua

vitality of the everyday in a world full of tensions


In December 2022 I was in Taipei for the first part of my artist in residency to collect input in order to establish a project in this enchanting neighbourhood Galaya.

At this moment I am in Taipei to carry out the project and exhibition in close colaboration with Waley Art. The project is supported by the Mondriaan Fund which I am grateful for. I also thank Waley Art for the chance and their great support.

Waley Art focus on the local cultural and history studies of Galaya – an area south of the WanHua District, Taipei city, in which Waley Art is located in and actively sets up events with artists and community planners to make positive impacts.

WanHua is the oldest district in Taipei. The local, informal and sometimes a bit rough but charming character makes it perfect for my ongoing urban research project on the use of space.

Soon more…
