Parallel Context is a bud-shaped artwork found in the square of the National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying) along Sanduo 1st Rd. The artwork contains three blooming “flower buds,” which were its creator Lin Shuen-long’s attempt to transform military fortresses into soft flowers. This piece shows the history of Weiwuying’s evolution from a military camp into an art exhibition venue and symbolizes the strong development of Kaohsiung’s art and literature environment.
The three internal parts of the artwork are embedded with ceramic plates that resemble archeological objects and show maps of the Qing dynasty, Taiwan under Japanese Rule, and our contemporary, combined with the images of swords, guns, and artillery, military equipment, and musical symbols that represent the different eras. The three diverse spaces demonstrate the transformation of Weiwuying from a formal military base to a joyful, light-hearted art center.
