Phoebe Man’s work “Erosion of Home” which addressed the housing problem was shown in Taipei MOCA. The new version studied Taiwan’s housing problem and added new content in the posters “Estate Adverts”. A wall was set up for the audience to indicate what individuals have had to give up to buy a house. They can even eat the new work “One Pyeong of Golden Bricks” because there was some rice put inside the work. More than a thousand books were given up to build one pyeong of house. On the door of the house, a sentence stated that “if one does not eat or drink for ten years, one can buy one pyeong of house.” “Where is My Paradise?” video looks similar to ads but it is actually anti-ads. The work got overwhelming response during the two months long exhibition. More than 6000 viewers posted their views on the wall.
The works consists of 4 parts. Please go to individual page to know the details.
