Opens Dec 7, 2017 and runs to  Feb 25, 2018 in Taiwan


An interactive performance exhibition that utilizes visual media and audio designed to promote language preservation and development for the local children in the south of Taiwan.

Inspired by the comic dialogues of the clown characters of Wayang Kulit shadow puppetry and the contentious and playful way that children speak, Terry O’Reilly imagines what birds would say when first they encounter a flying house.

Flying House / Home ran concurrently with Terry O’Reilly’s Cee Cee and Dee Dee and the Flying House at Soulangh Artist Village, Tainan, Taiwan. 2017-2018.
