There are some similarities in the English spelling that always make people who not familiar with the geography, confused between Taiwan and Thailand. But it does not mean that Thais and Taiwanese know the historical background between two of us. In the cross-cultural this point, whether we can really explore very well to each other; is there the real measurement of understanding in culture? The ThaiTai project is focus on two stages of dialogue which is the Artist in Residency in two nations that base on Taiwan and Thailand respectively by Open -Contemporary Art Center (Taiwan) and duo artists jiandyin (Thailand). Last year, Open -Contemporary Art Center had formal stationed in Bangkok through partnership with jiandyin, Thailand, right after, an international exhibition in Bangkok Art and Culture Centre was organized. This year, ThaiTai project had brought to Taiwan and expand its scale, the project has invited artists from Thailand, doing residency in Taiwan. During this space of adventure, there is some imagination in cultural purity gradually had been tested as well.
也不因此意味著泰國人與台灣人知曉對方的歷史背景。在跨文化的交流上,我們是否真能探觸到彼此;是否真有一種尺度可獲至文化的理解?打開-當代藝術工作站(台灣),與藝術家雙人組Jiandyin(泰國)聯合策劃,分別以兩國藝術家的跨國在地創作為兩階段的對話主軸。去年打開-當代的實體藝術空間進駐曼谷,隨後在曼谷藝術文化中心舉辦一項國際藝術交流展;今年,此計畫的互動場域於台灣展開,並擴大規模舉行,陸續邀請多位泰國藝術家前來台灣進行短期駐地創作。在這段探索的冒險旅程上,某種文化純粹性的想像也漸受考驗。
