The New Way - The Right Method (The Details)
新路線:右邊的方法(細部)

Created on-site at C-LAB, a pair of two murals stand resonant in mutual dialogue on facing walls. The chessboard structure on the murals alludes to the current state of contemporary art in Taiwan driven by Western art. A small map of China has been overlaid on top of a map of Taipei on the mural. The red-and-white C-LAB logos on the chessboard map designates the three locations in Taipei where the designer (an Austrian artist born in China) has held solo exhibitions in 2020, thus indicating the "correct" path (chess moves) for navigating Taiwan’s art circles. 

在空總C-LAB現地製作的牆面繪畫兩件一組,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。
