Chi Kai Yuan 2017 Solo Exhibition

April 8, 2017 - June 4, 2017

Outside of art circles, the artist CHI New-York goes by the name CHI Kai-Yuan. Juxtaposed against his more renowned nom de plume, this unfamiliar name has the appearance of a secret code to the artist’s private life. This eponymous exhibition takes the name “CHI Kai-Yuan”, a proper noun yet unencumbered by projected meaning, as the title of this 2017 solo exhibition. The featured works reveal a constant cycle of memory and craft in his personal experience, and are a reconsolidation of his individual artistic expression. CHI New-York simultaneously transitions into his role as artist in the cultural arena while he attempts to use himself as a vehicle of documenting the Other in a “mutual vehicle” in reciprocal response to the Other. The documentary photographic style approaches the realism of events and objects, while various technologies in the installation capture personal sensory experiences at different junctures.

OFF THE CHORE by Sun Son Theatre

May 26, 2017 - May 28, 2017

"Few tasks are more like the torture of Sisyphus than housework, with its endless repetition: the clean becomes soiled, the soiled is made clean, over and over, day after day. The housewife wears herself out marking time: she makes nothing, simply perpetuates the present … Eating, sleeping, cleaning – the years no longer rise up towards heaven, they lie spread out ahead, grey and identical. The battle against dust and dirt is never won."--Simone de Beauvoir 

The performance combines with percussion, physical movement, little perspective and little humor inspired by daily chore with tears and laughter.

Outsider

May 19, 2017 - May 21, 2017

Humans are constantly shifting between the roles of subject and object. Based on the works of British playwright Harold Pinter from different stages of his career, director and playwright KOH Choon Eiow rewrote and re-renders Outsider. The happy family of a contemporary Taiwanese couple hosts an elderly relative while visited by a friend from afar. Boundaries are masked by daily conversations, revealing the closeness between characters or the lack thereof; embedded within their everyday life is the shadows of Southeast Asian history.

Blood & Rose Ensemble

May 12, 2017 - May 14, 2017

Theater director Wang Chia-ming turns himself into a DJ, remixing Shakespeare's historical plays and re-interpreting the War of the Roses. How would the history be rewritten? How would the stories be disseminated? What kind of intertwining complexities exist between blood and roses as well as between violence and beauty? Following his experiments of separating bodies and voices in Richard III, Wang Chia-ming re-constructs classic texts to re-present the political issues in the complicated history as well as their rules and forces.

You are the Sunshine of my Life - 2017 Treasure Hill Light Festival

March 25, 2017 - May 14, 2017

Coming from the concept of love and relationship, I invited ten pairs of lovers - who also are artists - to collaborate. Many decades ago, there were a group of people decided to build their homes at Treasure Hill, and they lived here with their loved ones. Treasure Hill was actually a living space, and now it is an ocean for artists to create.
