Love Suicide at Snow Melting Train: New Shikoku Pilgrimage in Taipei
single-channel video, historical archive
dimensions variable
2017

Love Suicide at Snow Melting Train is based on a prostitute's lovesuicide in Taipei, under the period of Japanese rule, as a counterpoint to the classical Japanese literatureLove Suicide at Sonesaki. The first part of this work's text is titled The Tour of Guanyin Temples, set in Sonesaki (Osaka), where the love-suicide unfolds through the eyes of the main female character, Ohatsu. As an extension of a previous single-channel video work, this project explores the thematic of the pilgrimage as it existed in the past: here, the New Shikoku Pilgrimage in Taipei is told through the eyes of Naruto, the female main character, in the form of prose poem, video and historical archival material.
