HONOR GUARD

First action in East Asia: Honor Guard

Public Movement, together with the Veterans Honor Guard of R.O.C. hold a new weekly ceremonial performance of patriotic pride taking place at the entrance to the Chaing Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, Taipei. Throughout the duration of the Asian Art Biennial, Public Movement will join the Veteran Honor Guard in presenting a new State Choreography, inviting spectators to pay respect to Taiwan's past, present and future and to the beauty of order.
The Elaborate choreographies of the Honor Guard at the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall attract tourists from China and international visitors. The action Honor Guard celebrates this unique liminal moment of a State without a nation or a nation without a State, proposing to regard it as a source of hope. Taiwan, free of international recognition, can thus dance its unspoken trauma, myth and heritage, examine the notion of independence, and acknowledge its violence and unity.
The new Public Movement choreography salutes the divided national identity of Taiwan and upholds the glory of ambivalent historical narratives.
