The exhibition highlights movement, migration and temporary residing status in contemporary societies to explore the definition of belonging and how homeland/resident is transformed and represented by art in the process. As people migrate and disperse, how do heterotopias appear between places and non-places in urban environment? How are they hidden, felt and represented in the daily scenarios?
The participant artists from international and Taiwan demonstrate how they contemplate and explore on migration and temporary dwelling, from perspectives of time, space and memory.
Just as the endless transformations, regenerations and developments in contemporary cities, The Flying Land illustrates the tidal currents in various public and private domains, traveling between histories and vision for the future, confessing our destined life of constant drifting and wandering.
