    A hypothetical family imagines ‘If Taiwan was my home’

    At the end of the 19th century Loo Hui Phang’s paternal great-grandfather left Guangdong headed for Taiwan. Only when he was already miles out to sea, looking at the receding port of Hong Kong, did he realize he had boarded the wrong boat. Several days later, he disembarked in Saigon and began to work on a new plan.

    One century later, Loo Hui Phang was born in Savannakhet, Laos. The dictatorship forced her family to flee to France where they lived in exile. It was these events that resulted in her French upbringing, where she studied and consequently became an author and director.

    If Loo Hui Phang’s great grandfather hadn’t boarded the wrong ship, what might have happened? What life would he have made for himself in Taiwan? And his future generations, including a hypothesized Loo Hui Phang, what might have become of them?

    Outside is a reinterpretation of history. It is her hypothesis concerning this imagined family that exists in a parallel imagined world. By combining performance and video installation, she initiates a dialogue with the members of this Taiwanese family, examining in-depth the concepts of self-identity, (im/em)migration and territory.

    Artist: Loo Hui Phang

    Loo Hui Phang was born Laos in 1974. She grew up in Normandy where she studied Literature and Cinema. Writer, scriptwriter and film maker, she made her first graphic novel with belgian artist Cédric Manche in 2004, Panorama. She made a cinematographic adaptation of this book, produced by Arte. The movie was awarded in Turino Film Festival in 2008. 

    Loo Hui Phang loves to tell stories, in every way. Through comics, theatre, cinema, literature, installations and performances, she develops a reflection about narration. With many collaborations (Michel Houellebecq, Rodolphe Burger, Moriarty, Hugues Micol, Philippe Dupuy, François Olislaeger, Mickaël Sterckeman, Frederik Peeters...), she builds a path which crosses different artistic territories, but haunted by recurring themes : identity, desire, oddity.The Angoulême International comics festival 2017 dedicated a exhibition to her work.
