Maybe, A Suggestion About Contemporary Ink Painting : A Platform for Residence and Travel

In this group exhibition, artists will investigate everything within a physical space as the suggested title, in how it can be a “resembled” reality: not an objective reality. It should have organism that is filled with elegant temperaments, as if “filled with intangible essence”, even mixed with poetic ingredient as on-site intervention. It is not a tidied and pruned garden and grass field, the path for the inquiry takes on another kind of possibility, an overview or summed up wide-shot. From this view point, the pastoral song from the resembled landscape has new vocabularies; an excitable sign of possibility leaked from the fringe of historical reading, produced from inner artistic framework. Due to this foreign perspective and the cultural crash in the comparative result, a new energy is created.

The L shape viewpoint from the entrance of the exhibition site created two pathway choices. Parallel to Lin Garden’s design in China and accompany the exit at the back of the exhibition space, the set-up offered different pathways for walking as meandering route pointing at the same destination.

    Looking ‧ Souvenir: Artists Images

    It’s a kind of warmth from freshly baked bread, an invitation, an observation, a change and a test for adventuring hearts. After experiencing an information overload from artistic fulfillment mixed with the growth and exhaustion from long travels, artists have a small part in their heart that is slowly changing, building and settling down, as if fermenting in butterfly effects.

    Around Us - Chiu Chen-Hung Solo Exhibition

    The work Around Us is like a journey.

In the past, these carts were not only used for transport, but also as working stations for the miners to mend imperfect diamonds.
