Walking Men Taipei Taipei, Taiwan March 2018 – March 2019
Walking Men Taipei is new site-specific public art installation under the umbrella of Walking Men Worldwide™, which opened in Taipei’s Xinyi District in March 2018, and will remain on display for one year.
This work has been realized in collaboration with the Fubon Art Foundation in conjunction with the Very Fun Park 2018 Festival. It joins together over 140 iconic pedestrian traffic light symbols from cities around the world, and wraps around a 400 meter-long parameter wall, making it the largest Walking Men Worldwide™ installation to date. The work surrounds the construction site of the upcoming Fubon Xinyi A25 Towerwhich will house the Fubon Contemporary Art Museum that is being designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop.
As part of this collaboration and with the unique opportunity of creating site-specific work in the tradition of Taipei’s public environment, 28 ‘walk’ icons have been re-imagined as green wall plants designs!
