Winner of the 11thJury’s Special Award:

1/2 Q Theatre for Peach Blossom Rain

One of Taiwan's most prestigious honors in the field of arts and culture, the Taishin Arts Award has announced the winners of this year's 11th iteration. Artist WU Mali and the Bamboo Curtain Studio took home the Annual Visual Arts Award, while in Performing Arts category, Pisui Ciyo/UTUX, Pan-Spirit's Men for Music and Dance made history as both the first work addressing Taiwan's aboriginal peoples to win the prize, and the first inaugural work ever to win the prize. Additionally, the Jury's Special Award was presented to 1/2 Q Theatre.

Pisui Ciyo/UTUX, Pan Spirit's Men for Music and Dance were recognized for their theatre project Her Silent Innermost, based on a year of fieldwork interviews and research at Sbayen tribe in Nantou county, home to the Squliq linguistic cluster of the Tayal tribe. The work centers upon the personal narratives of five Tayal women over the age of 80, whose lives span from the late Japanese colonial period to the current era. According to the jury: “Pisui Ciyo’s work stands at a cross point between anthropological research, contemporary life, and sustainability. Her work is a personal, intimate, individual search. The haunting melodies and the clear conflicts speak of the loss that modern society is experiencing. Loss of identity. Loss of connection to what is important. Yet, it is also a work of survival. Pisui Ciyo is a contemporary artist who pulls from her traditions while inserting and layering other traditions. The work encompasses multiple creative disciplines and theatricalities.”

The Annual Visual Arts Award was awarded to WU Mali & Bamboo Curtain Studio for Art as Environment—A Cultural Action at the Plum Creek. Proposing an ecology-focused planning for urban villages, the project brought together professionals from different fields—including those from local primary and secondary schools, as well as universities—and artists spanning a variety of media to initiate dialogue between local residents and the public sector and apply theoretical aspects of critical pedagogy to practical situations. The judges agreed: “Art as Environment—A Cultural Action at the Plum Creek demonstrates an outstanding example of the exploration of social issues through artistic practice, addressing sustainable development, environmental protection and encouraging community participation. WU Mali and HSIAO Li-Hung’s cross-border collaboration reaches a level of dialogue, giving rise to a new type of public art. The fact that the project has already aroused attentions from various governmental agencies also proves its potential to become an encouraging case study for other practitioners and communities that confront similar conditions.”

The Jury’s Special Award was given to 1/2 Q Theatre for Peach Blossom Rain. The jury said: “1/2 Q Theatre is committed to expanding the modern vitality of Kunqu theater, and its achievement is outstanding. The work Peach Blossom Rain has managed to cross various strains of operatic tradition, simultaneously implementing the vocabularies of traditional opera and modern theater, of both the performing arts and the visual arts, in a multicultural dialogue. It achieves a profound interaction between the medium and the meaning of the text, illustrating an underlying layer of universal human nature, namely self-realization or questioning. It echoes the distinct plight of contemporary Taiwanese society.”

Sponsored by Taishin Financial Holdings, the Taishin Arts Awards confer prizes of NT $1 million to the winners of the performing and visual arts categories, with an additional NT $300,000 for the Jury's Special Award. The awards recognize performing arts productions and visual arts exhibitions that have premiered in the previous calendar year. Comprising leading international and local professionals, international jury members for the 11th edition included Korean curator Sunjung Kim and dean of the School of Fine Art, Royal College of Art, Ute Meta Bauer, in the visual arts category, and the Artistic Director of Singapore's TheatreWorks and founder of Arts Network Asia, Ong Keng Sen; the Secretary General of International Association of Theatre Critics, Michel Vais, and Co-Director of American Dance Abroad, Carolelinda Dickey in the performing arts category.

At this year's awards ceremony, the chairman of the Taishin Bank Foundation for Arts and Culture, Simon Cheng, announced that the prize will be revamping its selection system with next year's 12th iteration, with an eye toward expanding its inclusivity. The exhibition of this year's Taishin Arts Award finalists at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei, continues through June 23.
