NONNON DADA 論論多多 #4 Blue House 2017‘
A performance series of our lecture program NON論DA多{play}

Throughout this project, I tried to become a narrator myself. A narrator is capable of surpassing their physical boundaries, slyly perturbing the border of reality and fantasy, or actuality and imagination.
At Blue House(2017), we experience the demarcations of notions and the actual, existence and non-existence, life and death. The story of Blue House(2017) implies both the time and space we have encountered before or after experiencing these demarcations. The stories of others introduce new perspectives and different interpretations of borders to those who have not yet experienced. At the same time, this project is also a reminder of all the people, objects in the past and their stories are no longer with us.
It was when I started to research, reshape and fabricate realistic objects and creating an imaginative space that this project began.. Then the whole process developed into creating a metaphysical reality, the Blue House. At project Blue House(2017), stories being told through verbal communication based on the visual experience of the teller, become exaggerated or entangled on its way to the listeners and by the listeners. This confusion, intervention and misplacement then create a new story, and another one, and another one.
