Mémoire du corps

  • Mémoire du corps, installation video by Mei-Kuei Feu

Mémoire du corps ( 2003 ) 

Video installation, sound, composed of a 3-legged chair, a basin for water and burnt coffee, exposed to the Arts Center of the National Tsing-Hua University, Taiwan.

In the series réAnimation-1, walking barefoot on snow reveals an experience of great beauty linked to the feeling both hard and soft. The video is combined with a negative portrait image as flashbacks of memory. In addition the project is associated with found objects and stories related to the great earthquake in Taiwan in 2000. There is a constant concern with the fragility and resilience of the human body in my research. The installation extended the wall space to the floor to evoke an unusual and unstable feeling.
