People joke that the Nanhui region has nine suns, for it is bathed in searing sunshine the whole year round. When the Taitung County Government inaugurated its “The Hidden South” arts project in May 2018, it invited 20 artists to sojourn in the county’s four southernmost townships and to place this region on the map by creating works that engage in dialogue with its cultural riches. The county hopes the program will raise the area’s profile and draw visitors to this largely undiscovered part of southern Taiwan.
