“The Oceans and the Interpreters”, are the series projects, started from 2020, which focus on “the global south”. “The Oceans and the Interpreters” across various forms, include exhibition, residency, research, screening and writing, which aim to rethink the global perspective of the South. “The Interpreters”, by Nigerian writer Wole Soyinka, depicted the oversea students from different backgrounds, and how they interact with their new founded federal state after they returned home. The novel shows us how these characters deal with their internal conflict, between the globalized newly view point and childhood memories.
To promote cross-Atlantic countries’ artists, “The Oceans and the Interpreters” conducts “Interpreter’s Screening Project”, in 2020 with VAN Lagos, in 2021with 14N61W and curator Caryl Ivrisse-Crochemar from Martinique. The final presentation in autumn 2022 will take place in Hong-gah Museum.
