蝕- nibble, erosion, eclipse
Chinese Museum, Melbourne Fringe Festival, Melbourne
“The moon is in my mouth. I didn’t swallow it. I nibbled it, little by little. It was crispy but cold. Suddenly, it disintegrated between my lips and teeth, mingling with other countless debris, I spat it out as if it had burnt me.
But I saw nothing, just light.
I then realized there was never a moon, never an eclipse, only the erosion of light.
— I’m the moon eater.”
Three Chinese/Taiwanese artists, Zheng Tian-Shu, Chen I-yen, and Yang Yan frame a scenario through works of painting, installation and video art.
The exhibition was nominated for the Visual Art Award of Melbourne Fringe Festival, 2016
