HSU Po-Yen, LU Chun-Cha, LU Guan-Hong, LIANG Ting-Yu (Engineering of Volcano Detonating)
The artist group Engineering of Volcano Detonating that formed by Liang Ting- Yu, Hsu Po-Yen, Lu Chun-Cha, and Lu Guan-Hong initiated the Engineering of Volcano Detonating in 2016. After carrying out a series of smoke rising projects in the Yangmingshan National Park, they engaged in artistic creations concerning the relations between the city and volcanoes in 2017. Applying the image of volcanoes in the news media throughout the 2010s, they investigated the demonization of volcanoes by mass media and the othering of nature by the city. From 2018 to 2019, they undertook the project titled Flaming Mountains, a concatenation of corporeal intervention and field surveys into volcanic craters. They have paid continuous attention to the relations among volcanoes, cities, and human beings. Their recent performances and works include Flaming Mountains (Air-drop Taiwan Forum, ET@T, 2018) and Engineering of Volcano Detonating (URS27M, 2016), as well as those presented at the 10th International Symposium on Media and Environment (Fu Jen Catholic University, 2019), the Conference on Environment and the World (National Kaohsiung Normal University, 2019), and the Annual Meeting of the Geographical Society of China—The Advancement and Application of Geography (National Kaohsiung Normal University, 2018).
