A trip to Taitung is in order after the pandemic subsides. As you travel along the South Link Highway, you’ll discover a new side of southern Taitung County. The theme of this year’s Nanhui Art Project is “Sicevudan.” This is a Paiwan word that means “converge with the source.” Sicevudan symbolizes the power of art to overcome ethnic and regional differences. The Nanhui Art Project has invited 14 well-known groups of Taiwanese and foreign artists to participate. Through their instillations, these 14 groups will reflect the culture and characteristics of different parts of the South Link. The event has also gotten local indigenous youth involved and given them the chance to display their unique energy.
The Nanhui Art Project is scheduled to start in August. The following will take you from north to south and will introduce the artists featured in the exhibition. Along the way, you’ll pass through relaxing and dreamy scenery that’s the backdrop for the different art instillations. After reading, you’ll have a better understanding behind meaning of these 14 different pieces. Once restrictions are lifted, come to the South Link for a brief cultural tour. Spending even one day down here will put your mind and body at ease.
