□□ Curatorial Statement □□
With “light” as the medium, Treasure Hill Light Festival explores ways to present and embrace the multiple aspects of life in a hillside settlement through contemporary art. By building context through curatorial themes and constructing imaginations of the area, Treasure Hill invites viewers to follow the narrative of culture and history through themes such as life, space/time, land, and coexistence. Follow the light and explore the layered clues amid the winding landscape that weave into a story that chronicles life on this land.

Treasure Hill is situated on Taipei basin's southern outskirts and at the confluence of the Xindian River and Wansheng Creek. The residents arrived in different stages and built homes that echo the geography and climate of the area, as well as individual needs. As a result, Treasure Hill, a settlement that became one with its natural surroundings, was born. As an arena for experimenting ways of life and a living sphere rooted in its intimate connection with nature, Treasure Hill is viewed by its residents as a space engrossed with the sensation of home and belonging. For residence artists, Treasure Hill is a temporary shelter, and for humans and non-humans living or working here, this is a habitat that provides nourishment for the roots and for connecting with others. Treasure Hill is a meeting site for humans and non-humans, intertwining culture with land and forming a unity without distinct boundaries, a place that allows subtle, nuanced transformations.

The perception of a home can be passed on, and memories and emotions are often resurrected through the surroundings and objects. Home can be a place, but it can also be a person. Home extends life and embodies the desire to leave and to return. The 2021 Treasure Hill Light Festival is structured through three perspectives: “The Thoughts of the Individual,” “The Shape of Home,” and “The Realm of Nature.” Each subtopic corresponds to the different definitions of a home that artists present based on their memories of family life and personal experiences and explores the role of human individuals in a spatial context and in a community. The three perspectives are interpretations of the ever-changing states and multidimensional relationships between individuals and their dwellings.
