Highway 11, located in a sugar factory in Dulan, Taitung, is a studio operated by artist Gao Minshu and her brewer husband, Brian. Under the towering chimney, the couple and their exceptional taste have brought together a unique space at one corner of the factory complex. In the outdoor lawn area, they also built a wooden platform, and a thatched hut with driftwood structure, creating Highway 11 this one of a kind temple for the leisure life of the East Coast.
Workshop in Progress
In the second half of the year 2019, Highway 11 will be expanding to a new space on the other side of the factory, where the artist will integrate the spirit of the open studio and conduct an experimental “exhibition in progress”.
Part I: July Entry Imagery Art Installation (Relief door made of copper foil /aluminum foil)
Part II: Grand Opening for the new space and exhibition on Dulan Sugar Factory History / Open Circle Tribe on August 24
During the Open Studio Event, the artist will be creating installation art for the entry during the entire July and August. Because the worksite is right at the entry (and doorway), visitors can see the artist’s creative process and how the work transforms over time, turning artistic creation into a form of performance.
When the entry installation artwork is completed on August 24, Highway 11 studio will introduce the new showroom with documents on exhibition (concert) to introduce important cultural center “Dulan Sugar Factory” and “Open Circle Tribe”.
