Exhibition Background

Hai-Hsin Huang's works explore images indicative of contemporary life. Particularly banal everyday life images that reveal an ambiguous atmosphere between humor and horror: Ordinary family photo images and regular annual drill practices... She is interested in the ridiculousness and fear in society, the absurdity and the loneliness. As part of a generation marked by hedonism, people seem to know more but feel less. Catastrophes become assumptions; we practice suffering and crisis with laughter. Huang tries to highlight the lives of this easy and comfortable generation, and in particular, their lightness of being.
