The Overarching Theme

The title “Small World” suggests both a promise and a threat: a promise of greater control over one’s own life, and a threat of isolation from a larger community following a global pandemic. Our world can become smaller as we grow closer to one another, but also as we grow apart.

Highlights from Taipei Biennial 2023 includes Pio Abad’s new commission originated in a research trip to Lanyu, an island in Taiwan that is closely related to the Batanes and Babuyan islands of the northern Philippines, a region native to his Ivatan roots.Art

Art Is Everywhere

What’s more, situated in the courtyard of Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Natascha Sadr Haghighian’s new commission is a multi-channel installation that evokes the sound of disappearance and erasure.

Taiwanese artist Li Yi Fan will also present new work. Employing a format that stands out from mass animation productions and special effect industries, Li creates video performances that are similar to anti-script, impromptu talk shows with his self-made video tools.Taipei Biennial 2023

Art In Emotion

On top of that, artist duo Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme will also present an immersive, multichannel sound and moving-image installation that examines how people bear witness to and narrate experiences of violence, loss, displacement, and forced migration through performance.

Lastly, The Biennial will feature a selection of late Lebanese painter, sculptor, and fashion designer Huguette Caland (1931 – 2019) self-portraits from the 1970s after she moved from Beirut to Paris as well as the works of major figure of Japan’s 1960s avant-garde, Akasegawa Genpei (1937 – 2014).Taipei Biennial 2023
