Laceration: the Infinite Splitting of Taboo Map is a mapping process that indexes taboos and governance relationship of societies. As though drawing a knife on the map, this process connects four reality spots, namely Roppongi, Taipei, Hong Kong, and Bangkok, through correspondence between film characters and geographic locations that were marked by social events. This visual imagery implies that social taboos that are obsolete and rigid, has become agony in our societies. It blocks the probability of the public to acknowledge gender and sexual consciousness. If we are unwilling to exceed the boundaries of taboos and explore the reason why the taboos exist, our consciousness towards gender grayscale will hence not maintain the status quo, results in falling down with ignorance and oblivion.

In my thoughts, talking about gender issues will not only focus on gender itself. In terms of structure, this sort of proposition needs to trace back to origin: literally how to make the audiences aware of the fact that queer will that breaks every rigid thinking logically is overlapping the ways the life deal with identity, nationality, ideology and spiritual values. The mise-en-scene of this exhibition is an attempt to practice this consciousness so that the Taiwan artists will likely have radical changes in gender, sex consciousness and cultural, political issues.
