The research project, ‘History of Hybrid Culture Movements’ carried out during my residency in Sapporo, it was an attempt to treat the geographical conception, the climate and the environment, primitive tribes or archives related to Hokkaido in modern Japanese history. In the venue, the origin of the room is like the cabinets of curiosities cre- ated by the European aristocracy of the fifteenth century. Yet it also differs from the Western exhibition frame. The seemingly irrelevant objects-archives actually af- fected the development of the modern Japanese history and influenced the process of modernization in Taiwan at the same time. The ready-mades and archive photos col- lected during my residency as well as films of interviews with residents in Sapporo constitute a heterogeneous space installation, a mixture including Ainu culture, the material life of the Showa period and the Movement of Mutual Cooperation and Security.
