Ting-Yu Kim

To strangers, I am someone who is “tasteless to eat, but a pity to waste”.

To friends, I am someone who “looks down on others”.

And to myself, I am someone who is “excessively self-loving and arrogant, yet also tasteless to eat and a pity to waste, someone who doesn’t care about anything, is always discontent, and constantly complaining”.

The argument is about emotions.

The discontent is about life, material things, and air conditioning temperature and hot water heaters.

Even though I often say that I hate painting, I know that only painting can cure all of my emotions. This self-portrait represents both my discontent and contentment.

TAIWANfest Vancouver is grateful to be held on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam Indian Band), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish Nation), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation). We acknowledge our privilege to be gathered here, and commit to work with and be respectful to the Indigenous peoples of this land while we engage in meaningful conversations of culture and reconciliation.
