Through music and beyond
The yin and yang musicians describe the Eugenie’s memories of playing Taiwanese folk songs with her grandfather every time she visited her home country. The figures rest on top of a scholar’s rock carrying the wisdom her grandfather wishes to pass to her. The two musicians are functional “Xun” 【陶塤】, a type of wind instrument that dates back to 5,000 BC in ancient China.

Taiwanese Folk Song - "Wang Chun Fong"
This is a well-loved Taiwanese folk song that I used to duet with my grandfather. He played the two stringed Chinese instrument, Er-Hu【二胡】and I played the western flute. Playing this song brings back countless memories of my childhood in Taiwan, connecting with all of those that also grew up with this song.
