Family Trips


Over 60 years ago, my father embarked on a one-way trip to Kaohsiung, settling in Liuhe Night Market. From there, he became a Japanese tour guide. The pandemic suspended his work, prompting a reflection on the past. This film is a personal journey, exploring the intimate bond formed during outings with my father's tour group.

'This work is about an experimental trip attempted by a pair of siblings who have moved out for years to get along with their parents again. We endeavoured to accompany our parents now, as they used to accompany us, with a family trip and home videos. The work is composed of video clips from this journey and the video our father took when tour guiding in the past. The different frame sizes between V8 and full-HD video represents the time span and image interlaced by father, mother, son, and daughter. The shifting of camera shoot and the alteration of being filmed and filming (passive and active), echo the various stages of life in the family and shape a sculpture of family relationships.' - LIU Chi-tung and LIU Chi-fan
