Drift art brightens up coastal Nanping

82

Nanping Neighborhood of Donggang Township, located at the south of Dapeng Bay in Pingtung County, launched a special display of drift art on January 5.

Canadian artist, Justin Tyler Tate, uses drift materials to make “The Southern Wilds” series which include themes like “drifters,” “fish bones,” “waves,” “green sea turtle shells,” and “fish mouths.”

Nanping is a longish bayside sandbar, where drift wood and plastic wastes are many. Most of the locals make a living on fish farming. Justin Tyler Tate created this series based on the town’s landscape, industry, and lifestyle, instilling the place’s cultural spirit into his works of art.

Making effective use of space in the community, the artworks are installed at deserted fish ponds, parks, open fields, and the top of an elders’ activity center.
