Venue Introduction

  • The image of the museum entrance: small universe-dedicated to Grandma Wan

  • Grandma Wan was unwilling to be exposed all her life and felt that her life was bleak. However, when she picked up a paintbrush at the Women's Rescue Foundation's mind and body workshop, she unexpectedly opened up a beautiful new world. We selected three works of Wannu’s grandma as the entrance image of the grandma’s home to express our admiration and longing for the grandmas.
    Opening the flip cabinet reveals the grandma's creative paintings, including "Present and Future Me", "Full Body Map", "Heart Fire", "Tree of Life" and "Flowers in Pots". By re-drawing the outline of the work and using punching technology to interpret the works on red copper, each of the works hidden on the wall can be opened by the viewer's hands, like a door leading to the life stories of the grandmothers.

  • Their time
    Pass through the brick arch and enter the stories of the grandmothers. The handrails are the warmth of grandma. Through the combination of carefully designed handrails and photos, the story of each photo is clearly expressed. Touching the handrails is like holding grandma's hand to watch the exhibition together, extending to every place in the space. The materials include metal iron, red copper, logs, and cloth, which represent different meanings, some are cold and hard, and some are warm. Softness symbolizes grandma’s mood and story.
