documenta fifteen

jiandyin, cofounders and board committees of Baan Noorg, took part as artistic team with Lo Shih Tung and Hsu Chia Wei for Baan Noorg project in Documenta fifteen, 2022 titled “the Churning Milk: the Ritual of Things”, a collaborative and participatory art project, works with stories, literature, and folktales to deconstruct and disentangle the invisible from the visible, exposing power as it is distilled into social rules and regulations, into hierarchy. Play decentralises power or disrupts the stagnant centre, opening up the possibilities of becoming something new, of contaminating with something other.  This fluid imaginary is represented by the constant metamorphosis between gods-demons and human. The work is exhibiting at documenta Halle, Kassel, Germany
