Amphibian has been transformed from the artist, Nung-Hsin Hu’s, on-going performance SUSHI. To extend the idea of identity confusion into her current circumstances, Nung-Hsin performed SUSHI in her working environment, a museum, wearing her regular working clothes while the space was closed to the public. The photographic and video documentation reveal the contradiction and affinity between the two roles as an artist and art administrator, and the invisible creative contribution provided through the supporting admin role.
The Amphibian exhibition at RESOBOX will include stereoscope photographic installations, one single channel video, and site specific fake food installations that will also reflect the artist’s confusion of identity.
