Nose against the window


Just another site




UNFOLDING-TAIPEI is the result of an art-residency between France and Taïwan. The project is made in continuation with our former work, with its documentary and digital approach of a socio-political theme as “migration”. As Taïwan has a strong migration history, the location showed to be perfect. The starting point was concrete and factual, the research was rich and the more we approached our interviewees the more we came in the essence of the subject with all the indescribable and subtle things of this universal and complex question.
In 2013, we interviewed and talked with 9 participants living and working in Taipei and coming from different countries such as Cambodia, Singapore, France, Thailand, USA, Indonesia, Belarus and Russia, Malaysia and coming from different social layers. From them, we collected texts, pictures and videos. With the collected material we elaborated  the semi-fictional project with the idea of feeling Taipei through uprooted eyes and thoughts. The project ended as a little window on Taipei and its migrants. It is presented in two parts. You can either watch the film first or do the digital navigation, there is no order.
