Bodily Travel around the World |身體感知的世界環遊
Performance Art, 2014

我買了一個個產自中國的柚子、美國的橙、日本的富士蘋果、南非的芒果,以及產自世界各地的水果。我透過進吃、消化、吸收那個水果而讓身體去感知和連結那個果實所聯繫著的那一片獨特的風、土地、水和陽光;而它的味道不但引發我對那一片土地的想像,也構築了我關於那片土地的記憶。在這樣的知覺經驗中,我經歷了一次又一次的環遊世界之旅。然後,我把剩下的果皮、果核構造出我對那個國家的記憶地圖和風景。

I bought fruits from China, America, Japan, South Africa, and so on. I eat, digest, absorb them, so to perceive and connect to the different land, water, wind, and sunlight where the fruits is come from. Their taste, smell not only stimulate my imagination of the places, but build my memory too. Through these perceptual experiences, I had traveled around the world. After that, I constructed the map and landscape of the places with the skin of the fruit and seeds by the memory of my journey.
