◤作品─ 多語神人 Hyperpolyglots
德安達的複合媒材裝置藝術《多語神人》,利用牆面彩繪如安平劍獅 與當地的雕塑紀念品,將其輪廓投射在牆面成為剪影,以及在臺南歷史上曾被使用過的語言文字繪於牆上象徵時間的流逝,回應臺南四百年以來的歷史。


◤作品─筷意築光 Structural Integrity
韋爾考克斯的裝置作品《筷意築光》,賦予筷子全新的定位,帶出臺灣重美食的文化,援用建築的結構,同時連結到製作筷子的材料─樹,用其姿態象徵臺灣經濟展開的形象,根部則是臺灣人民在歷年來多次社會政治的動盪中,展現出力量和堅定不搖,社會在民主自由之下穩定成長。

De Anda’s mixed-media installation, Hyperpolyglots, utilizes a range of painted wall silhouettes, signifying the shadowy marking and passage of a time, as a consideration of Tainan’s 400-year history. His designs incorporate painted written phrases in multiple languages that have been used throughout Tainan’s history, to explore how languages and translations combine and shift as they shape the understanding and communication within a community. De Anda also uses silhouettes of local icons such as the Sword Lion of Anping, as well as painted silhouettes traced onto the walls of shadows cast from small lit sculptures using local souvenir statuettes.

Wilcox’s installation, Structural Integrity, figuratively represents the structural and psychological growth of Taiwan during a 400-year time period marked by Tainan becoming its first city in 1624. Taking found and common materials is what Wilcox’s art practice embraces. For this installation, Wilcox has re-purposed chopsticks to represent Taiwan’s’ food-centric culture, building an architectural sculpture that references the past 400-year history of upward growth and change. Considering the source that chopsticks come from, the tree, as a symbolic reference for the upwards expansion of Taiwan’s economy. The roots express the strength and grounded determination of the people through the many socio-political changes throughout this time period and how well their society has thrived and held itself up since their independence.

Ismael de Anda III 
Born - El Paso, Texas; lives and works in Los Angeles, USA
Using mutant practices including drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, interactive media, and site-specific projects, de Anda's work is inspired by his pluralistic upbringing at the U.S./Mexico Gateway and living in Los Angeles. The mutant refers to mixing of artistic processes and the potential of the multi-ethnic existence of those living in the U.S. in exchange with diverse world cultures as a blend of developing culture not yet forecasted.
