The 2015 Black Golden Section Art Festival kicked off Nov. 14 at the Art Site of Chiayi Railway
Warehouse in southern Taiwan, showcasing artists’ life experiences and reflections on their relationships with the world.
Organized by the Chiayi City Government’s Cultural Affairs Bureau, the eclectic event features an exhibition comprising installations, ink paintings, photographs, prints, sketches and video recordings by five talents from the Chiayi area and nine artists from other parts of Taiwan and abroad.
“Themed Inside Out this year, the 14th edition of the display centers on the importance of self-exploration,” said Chen Yi-fan, who curated the event and doubles as an art professor at National Changhua University of Education. “Representing reflections of the artists’ inner selves, the pieces may also spur visitors to embark on their own journeys of self-exploration.”
One exhibition highlight is a six-print series, with each work composed of 20 smaller pieces, by local artist Hou Chun-ming. The artist created images that reimagine his outward appearance as a reflection of his inner self in the years 1985, 1990, 1993, 1999, 2002 and 2005. [FULL STORY]
