The New Way - The Right Method
新路線:右邊的方法
2021
Cement paint on wall 
2 pieces facing each other
330 x 560 cm each



​The work "The New Way: The Right Method" created on-site at Taiwan Contemporary Culture Lab (C-LAB) is composed of two wall paintings facing each other. The structure of its chessboard image hints that Taiwan's contemporary art scene is dominated by the Western art. Above the chessboard, there is a map of Taipei, a small map originally derived from the map of China. On the chessboard map, C-LAB's red-white sign is used to locate the three solo exhibition venues of its designer, a China born Austrian artist, in Taipei in 2020, which is an example of how one successfully survives in the Taipei art circle (Jiang-Hu).

在空總C-LAB現地製作的牆面繪畫《新路線:右邊的方法》兩件一組,彼此面對面呼應對話。畫面的西洋棋盤結構暗示由西人藝術主導的台灣當代藝術現況,其上的台北市地圖是一張小中國地圖。棋盤地圖上以C-LAB的紅白標誌定位其設計者(中國出生的奧地利籍藝術家)2020在台北市的三個個展地點,說明什麼是在台北藝術圈行走(下棋)的正確路線。
