Artist Statement

LIAO Jiun-Cheng graduated from the Graduate Institute of Theater Performance and Playwritting at Taipei National University of the Arts. He majored in directing, and his directorial works include One Hundred Years of Solitude (2006), Hsu Yen-Ling X Sylvia Plath (2008), Der Schöenste Moment (2009), and Show On (2012). In 2008, Shakespeare’s Wild Sisters Group went on a five-week residence program at Watermill Center in the U.S., and developed the theatrical work titled Plastic Holds that gained praises from Robert Wilson, who is the founder of the center and an icon of American theater.

Thoughts on Residency Program:

Residency at the Watermill Center could be divided into two phases. In the first phase, all artists must be part of the preparation of the Watermill Center Benefit Gala. In the U.S., a private art center and art village is hard to sustain. Therefore, to support the operation of the residence programs and the foundation, Robert Wilson will host fundraising gala every summer at the center. Other than selling dinner tickets, Robert Wilson will pull some strings and ask artists from all over the world to donate their works for the auction that day. Also, around 100 artists of the summer residence program from around the world will not only attend master’s seminars and workshops, they will also be part of the creative process of Robert Wilson’s works. The artists have an important “mission” at the fundraising gala, as they will serve as the staff and be in charge of the presentation of the artworks that evening.

The theme of this year’s gala fundraiser was One Thousand Nights and One Night: Sleepless Nights of Scheherazade. The gala began at 6 o’clock, July 16, and many socialites and celebrities were at the scene, such as actress Isabelle Huppert, film director Jim Jarmusch, and musician Philip Morris Glass. The gala raised 2.2 million dollars. The indoor and outdoor spaces nearly 30,000 square-feet also featured diverse activities including performances, visual and sound installations, performance art, and live bands; there was a total of 27 shows brought together by 100 artists, including a motion portrait made by Wilson himself for pop diva Lady Gaga, Director Jarmusch’s live music performance, as well as Sisyphus, a portion of Still Life, the latest work of Greek director and choreographer Dimitris Papaioannou, who was personally selected by Robert Wilson. I also worked together with fellow artists-in-residence for our work, One Thousand and One American Nights. The performance featured two American cultural icons—Mickey Mouse and Ronald McDonald, and used ready-made objects common in life, such as washing powder, toothpaste, cleansing spray, hanger, iron, hair blower, garbage bag, and food. Through arrangement and combination of daily objects, we presented the abnormalities and absurdities in daily life, constructing an “American fable” of over-consumption.
