Running Ghost Tour

Oliver Liu, Yoyo Huang and Linda Sun

In Running Ghost Tour/Treasure Hill (formally a squatted area on the outskirts of Taipei) we wanted to reclaim the hill for art. In doing so we performed a minor act of ethnography. Each tour consisting of a small group of up to 25 participants (actors and public) performing in a public space. People signed up to a tour become, by default, participants in the tour. Participants perform for one another as well as for a more ad hoc public who act as observers. Each tour involves a variety of materials that are worked with or abandoned throughout the tour. Each tour is normally under one-hour duration and is divided into episodes or events. Ghost Tour / Treasure Hill is connected to and part of the Taiwan International Video Art Exhibition The Return of Ghosts at Hong-Gah Museum Styrofoam, straps, plastic buckles, megaphone / Performers: Oliver Liu, Yoyo Huang and Linda Sun

In-between Objects
In-between objects – part of Running Ghost Tour/Treasure Hill – exist in a kind of intermediate or middle state: Somewhere between functional and non-functional objects (Objects made to exist in the Museum with an implied but unspecified function as well as objects that can equally exist and function in another context as something worn, performed and worked with).
Materials: Styrofoam, straps, plastic buckles
