“The Common Assemblage” is located in the wallless art museum in the streets and alleyways of a city. Lin Hong-John, the exhibition curator, aims to expand the arts into the public space. Lin has invited several artists-in-residence from the 435 Art Zone New Taipei City, to create artistic installations in the streets of Fuzhong. These works, which forms a dialogue with the urban environment, incorporates the daily experience of the local residents and the historical trajectory of the Fuzhong area. This approach assembles a new “common” entity. Amongst the works, Satoru Kondo’s Treasure focuses on the residents frequenting Huang Shi Market to create a psychological photomap of the area. As a written form of the light, photography allows the artist to reveal the treasures hidden in the dark.
