Hello World, my name is Lee Tzu-Tung.
I am a video artist,
a political activist and a visual anthropologist.
and I use art practices as my method to research, negociate and remake such contemporary scene.
My works concern how identity nostalgia and modern romance effect people's life in this era,
Some of the stories could go back to a midnight on March 18th, 2014...
On the midnight of March 18 2014, it is the split point of my art practice, Sunflower Revolution outbreaks in Taiwan, and led me to rethink of what is my real history and culture. As my pre-reference to create is found a colonized result reenforced by Kuo Ming Tang government, I then try to flip, research and decolonize the notion of art, and the identification of artists.
The political fevers and incidents after 2014, lead me to a 4-year research. I settled and surfed between multiple Taiwan indigenous communities, political parties, activist movements...etc.
I concern that how we could reframe art again, with and from our own root, our mixed and new tradition, and finally using such political medium to fund our inter-local perspective.
Take a look, on the projects in my hands: artworks, columns, conferences, activists movements, podcasts... if you feel like to talk with me or join any of the projects... you are welcomed to CONTACT me.
