Artwork Appreciation
YANG Shun-Fa filmed in the coastal areas of Yunlin, Chiayi and Tainan in Taiwan for three years. These cities are the most severely affected areas of land subsidence in Taiwan. In the work, The Submerged Beauty of Formosa-Shoudao Salt Field at Budai Salt Corporation, Zhangtan Village, Dongshih Township, Chiayi County, a small town used to focus on the salt industry is suffering from land subsidence due to the excessive groundwater extraction in the coastal areas. The windbreaks are also excessively deforested, causing the coastline to shrink and the direction of the sea current to change. Coupled with climate change and other factors, the previous salt field is replaced by dead trees and a sunken abandoned factory, becoming only a distant memory. YANG Shun-Fa presents a light and poetic landscape in the form of an ellipse, which is like a classical literati painting. However, this picturesque scenery is actually the tragic scene following the destruction of Taiwan's coastal environment.
