/ Video Sandbox– National Video Art Creator Contest

ALIEN Art Centre、Tainan National University of the Arts

“ALIEN Art Centre—Video Sandbox” is a National Video Art Creator Contest that marks the fifth anniversary of the establishment of the center, open to contemporary artists under the age of 40 (including). Co-organized by ALIEN Art Centre CEO Yaman Shao and the project director HE-LIN LUO, the project is titled “Video Sandbox”, whose vision is to provide a stage for emerging talents to thrive and prosper. Submissions will be presented at the exhibition room named “Memory,” which served as a telegraph room in the first floor of the original Kin-Ma Military Hostel building (now ALIEN Art Centre) back in the day. The Sand Box is the exhibition unit, with the universe displayed in virtual space that makes up the world through images.

With its motto- “Romance is the triumph of imagination, where life abounds a day beyond eternity,” ALIEN Art Centre (since 2018) has been working on projects integrated with dynamic vision and sounds to present unique cultures found in grassroot movements and around the world. Over the years, multi-media art as James Turrell: Corinth Canal, The Diamond (2019) and Kingsley Ng, Stephanie Cheung: Crossing (2019), Daisuke Miyatsu: 25 years of video art - A point of transit signals from East and South East Asia (2020), Rehearsing the Future (2021), and Echoes of All the Flowers (2022) has attracted tens of thousands of visitors visiting the place. Inheriting the context of the development, the 2023 “Video Sandbox” now sets a stage for video artists across the country to submit their entries. It is hoped that through the platform, opportunities could be created, leading to different kinds of multi-media artists being discovered by wider audiences.
