Out of Place — A Trilogy on Kaohsiung Military Dependents’ Villages: Lulu Shur-tzy Hou Solo Exhibition

July 1, 2017 - September 17, 2017

A Trilogy on Kaohsiung Military Dependents’ Villages summarizes the artist’s creative work involving Kaohsiung’s Zuoying and Fengshan military dependents’ villages over the course of many years. Employing the juxtaposition of positive and negative image pairs — which is termed a “Double-gaze” style by the curator, the artist superimposes subjective and objective viewpoints. Her work displays the dispersion and disruption of the military dependents’ villages, the turmoil and transience of the village residents’ lives as well as their appeals for “going back home” due to the improper execution of “Act for Rebuilding Old Quarters for Military Dependents,” and creates a contemporary epic of local history interwoven with the artist’s narratives and her dialogue with the residents.
