An experimental installation in bamboo, rattan and steel now serves as the entrance of Taipei Museum of Contemporary Art. The young Taiwanese artist Cheng Tsung Feng recently completed the piece which emanates his desire to recall the fishing trap as an auspicious omen for the museum.
The design process featured an extensive research on the fishing trap that resulted in the detection of the common traits in the variations of the object in the different cultures. In the words of the artist “among these different fishing traps, we found that there are common production thinking and modelling methods. These intangible cultures hidden behind tangible objects are like living things that can grow in response to the environment.”
