Chang En-Man : One Room Exhibit, / End Of Year Cleaning Project

“My living space is always messy and dirty, I also dream of having clean and poetic living space. Can I throw away most things in my house in an almost paranoid and crazy condition, to frame a beautiful living space with minimal conditions? Some questions of reality comes to me, where do those mess come from? Or can I achieve sensitive and clean simplicity through physical labour? What kind of message can those everyday objects that were once related to my life bring to myself and to audience while situating in an exhibition space? What kind of viewpoint can a body of events provide to our most everyday and intimate subject - living space?”

 

Chang En-Man will try her hardest to clean up her living space, move all things that she doesn’t often use to a space called “exhibition room”. She will ponder with these objects in the exhibition, and view them as materials to rearrange, reconstruct, and recombine. During the arrangement, the exhibition space will operate as its function: exhibit within certain dates and open for 24 hours. The audience members can touch the objects in exhibit, and also take them with them (if they wish to).

    Kwan Yin - Chiu Cheng-Hung Solo Exhibition

    The Goddess of Mercy’s features slowly emerge with each and every one of the sculptor’s strike and chisel. The fallen marble chips scattered on the ground are still cast by the breath of the goddess and morph into vivid animals in the work “Guanyin”. Collect--cleanse--remodel. First from marble, to the Bodhisattva and finally to the animal sculptures, the artist reactivates the chiseled...
