The Non-Present Performer

IN BETWEEN

IN BETWEEN

IN BETWEEN

2018, Taiwan

Being a foreigner in Taipei, what strikes, amazes and inspires me is the power naps Taiwanese take in public spaces. Long working hours probably give rise to these naps. The need to ‘step out for a moment’ and be able to fully perform afterwards is, for me, part of Taiwanese common features. It is much less seen, and appreciated in western culture. In a chaotic city a napping person forms an outstanding contrast.

In Between shows a typical Taiwanese setting, unfamiliar to Dutch culture. But at the same time through the human necessity of finding rest we can easily identify with these napping people.

The spectator takes a ride in a Taiwanese metro and gets an inside view in everyday life in Taipei. Again, as in my earlier work, moving forward without making a physical effort is an intriguing subject to study.
