If we consider an art residency as an island where a group of strangers from different backgrounds temporarily inhabit, how can these unfamiliar strangers make their time together meaningful, and perhaps further create an archipelago of solidarity beyond geographical boundaries after leaving the island? 

 — Archipelagic Affects, Introduction


Archipelagic Affects explores how art residencies nurture effective spaces to study the tangible and intangible cultural, historical and geopolitical connections between different island countries. The project is co-conceived by the Jan van Eyck Academie alumni (2022-2023) Yornel J. Martínez Elías and Framer Framed researcher Emily Shin-Jie Lee, in collaboration with Taiwanese novelist Huang Chong-Kai

Interweaving visual materials, dialogues, and stories created by the participants in different times and spaces, Archipelagic Affects documents the process of encountering different islands/languages as a result of an artistic residency, and explores the ways in which literature connects different worlds and how publishing practices create new connections. 

The book is designed by Chen Jhen. The publication is co-published by Framer Framed and the Jan van Eyck Academie, with generous support by The Netherlands Office Taipei.
