Activities during the residency

Based on her research on the trade history between Taiwan and Japan, Lo Yu-Chun created a room of an imaginary Hakata merchant who engaged in Hakata-Taiwan trading. On the tatami floor, Lo displayed various screens with an old photograph of banana, pineapple, papaya, hinoki tree, tobacco, and a deer all of which once were popular export goods from Taiwan. A deerskin with approximately two-thousand banana peels was also added to the installation.
