When facing unfamiliar events, we tend to look around for signals that we feel connected to. In order to interpret these events, we choose to use our intuition and logic of verification to surmise and to analyze these events. But because of the lack of objective information, we tend to seek help from our subjective self-experience, starting from our own selves and looking for different things to expand and feel connected to. After that, simulations and construction of the meaning and image will appear. But because of the different backgrounds and capability of different people, our subjective self-experience will cause different people to have different logical thinking of the same thing.
In this exhibition, artist Shang-Yang Wu, like before, focuses his works on wide ranges of social observation and experiences. Then, he focuses on one aspect and sees what intuitive thinking can come from gradually deciphers, teardown, and analyzes it logically. Leaping and shifting positions, searching for the unstable nature of the event and connecting to its time and space.
The projects in this exhibition are quite diversified. In the painting aspect, most of the works are expressed by silhouette-like, simple abstract structure, purposely creating images with a clear and at the same time unclear contradicting atmosphere. Under a limited resource, leading the audience to enter a “cognition” and “interpreting” thought process. At the same time, the exhibition will also show images and installation art made with different objects that intricately connects with the painting, which contains an unclear meaning of the verification concept. As if it is having a faint intercrossing conversation. The relationships are not to be answered. We only hope that through different people and different minds that we are able to expand the nature of the event itself and the imagination of the relationship in between.
