Taiwanese Artist Nung-Hsin Hu Explores Her Incurable Nostalgia in New Exhibition at 18th Street Arts Center
|Taiwanese artist, Nung-Hsin Hu, produced "Incurable Nostalgia" as a multimedia project, including a 16mm film loop installation, videos, drawings, and sculpture during her 3-month residency at the 18th Street Arts Center. This project is a reflection of the artist's current status after losing her childhood home and the processes of rethinking and searching for the meaning of home, both literal and metaphorical. Hu intends to reflect on how we are experiencing the collective grief and longing for the world we knew, and the normality that we may never return to under the current pandemic era. Hu also examines how the months-long lockdown, stay-at-home orders, climate crises, and travel restrictions have shifted our notion of home and altered the relationship between our body and space.|
