Presented at galerie nichido, Taipei, Taiwan
With “Taste of Ocean”, Lo created in 2018, she shifts the focus to Taiwan’s migrant workers who under the flow of globalization have crossed the ocean to work in Taiwan. This new series of banana peel works has evolved from her previous installations that were concerned about issues of immigration, refugees and global trade as well as research about the conditions immigrants and refugees faced on their ocean voyages and the often tough and bitter conditions of global human migration.
