The “Formosa” area of our annual themed exhibition is an exhibition of artworks that combined interactive media, contemporary art incorporated with game installation and art pieces by 6 Taiwanese rising artists, such as “The Plant Jungle” – a green multi-media interactive installation, “Making Big Money” – a contemporary artwork incorporated with game installation by Li Wen-Zheng and “The Drifting Journey of Bags” by the famous designer Liu Jing-Wei.
The exhibition will display ink paintings from “the Heart Series” by artist Fang Zhi-Wei. The artist specializes in animal-themed ink paintings. Using “macaques” as the subject of his research, the artist expresses his feelings for families by observing animal behavior. Many of the exhibited paintings are created with gold foils and colors. Colors are used instead of ink and ink is used as a secondary color. The “adding power” technique of Lingnan School of painting is applied so that paintings of this series display the spirits of “animals” and “beasts” while demonstrating the artist’s feelings for things around his daily life.
