Going Back II consists of two books and the event of reading them collectively as well as the stories that are told around them at this occasion. The two books are a photo album and a book with listening instructions. They are kept at Yuri Pasang’s home in the Li Wu mountains which can be reached in a six-hour hike from the next access to public roads. People who want to see the work have to visit Yuri there.
Going Back II is also a part of an ongoing community art project (2017- present) in Tree Tree Tree Person Taroko Arts Residency (https://treetreetreeperson.me/) that includes several video/sound works, site-specific installations and community events.
