After arriving in Taiwan, as I proceeded my research for the artwork, I learned that more than 90% of the fishermen in Taiwan are immigrants from Southeast Asia.
Since I have been spending time with an Indonesian fisherman I happened to meet, I observed how he and the immigrant worker's community around him have been working and living in Kaohsiung. While they face many difficulties as immigrant workers, I firmly felt their deep affection for their families back home and the pride of their own cultures.
As an artist, I have worked with a variety of media; this time, I focus on "Photography" and "Iron" for my artwork. Iron is made initially from minerals, and rust is a phenomenon that occurs in the process of returning to its original natural form, the mineral. Since I saw a lot of red rusty iron boats in Kaohsiung, I would like to draw the scenery of the iron boats and the feelings of immigrant fishers thinking of their home through this work. I also find that fishermen's work is always with a kind of darkness, and there might be some similarities between their work and the process of developing and printing photos.
I often use the color to capture the nature of society and the environment surrounding my body. In this work, black and red (and white) appear in various forms in my work and each has a significant meaning. I hope that through this work, you will be able to sense a story that exists in the corner of Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
