庇護中心(Shelter)是提供遭遇合約、薪資糾紛、人口販運、虐待等問題的移工暫時停留的地方,而本次活動始於進駐藝術家Deden J. Bulqini在庇護中心舉辦的工作坊。參與工作坊的「房客」們,藉由擺姿勢及畫出其他房客身體輪廓的遊戲開始,進而以顏料描繪這些同居於庇護中心的朋友們,而這也成為這個有限空間中特殊的快樂時刻。房客們將自己的身體拓印在報紙牆上,再由另一組房客進行著色,這是他們透過色彩認識及定義朋友的詮釋方式。房客們試圖透過報紙牆上的身體,重新認識彼此,而身體在此,也被轉化為從狹隘空間自我解放的媒介。移工的身體扮演著重要的角色,他們透過身體調整其生活模式,以填補日常勞動的空間。像庇護中心房客Tony Sarwono這樣擁有特殊繪畫才華的移工(或許自台灣還有許多像他一樣的移工),需要有更多的空間來容納其創造力,讓他們的靈魂與生存精神得以表達並延續下去。活動現場的錄像裝置為Deden J. Bulqini進駐期間對印尼移工社群所進行的觀察。另外,除了工作坊記錄,現場也將展示Deden J. Bulqini與移工Tony Sarwono及其他庇護中心房客所共同創作的作品。
