展覽簡介 About the Exhibition:


Fashion Accidentally is an attempt to encourage the public to contemplate how contemporary artists reflect on the issue of fashion itself, in the context of globalization and through clothing as a medium or an interfact. The range of subject matter addressed is impressively varied; body politics, racism, class struggle, self-identity, national politics, cultural colonialism, labor exploitation in poor countries, over consumption in rich countries and the consequential environmental crises in the so called post-globalization era. The exhibition touches on all of these hot button issues.

展覽簡介 About the Exhibition:



Zone_V2_ is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Arts, Taipei in association with V2_Institute for the Unstable Media. It is structured around the three themes of Dutch Electronic Festival Arts Festival, i.e. "Machine Times”, ”Information is Alive”, and "Interact or Die" in an attempt to pinpoint the current trend of contemporary media.

In this sense, historical writing can be seen as a series of data-selecting acts. Human actions and interactions, on the other hand, can be seen as processes determined by information according to the economic, social, or political agenda behind these processes. Nonetheless, the result of such actions or interactions is hard to predict or control. Zone_V2_ invites 20 acclaimed artists and artist groups from 13 countries to exhibit. By way of juxtaposing old and new media, this exhibition demonstrates how technology and the world-wide web have transformed our perception of time, space and speed. With great humor, it also incisively outlines, and reminds us of, the cultural implications of technology and progress which characterizes our time.

展覽簡介 About the Exhibition:

李明維和謝素梅的作品中常常可見一種時間循環復始的象徵週期。李明維【如沙的格爾尼卡】以沙隱喻的生命哲學:來自塵,歸於塵;謝素梅【個人時光】(Personal Times)以及【沙漠清道夫】(The Desert Sweeper)以沙的聲音推敲時間的過程,在沙中流逝的時間中卻又同時堆積起時間之沙。面對死亡的議題,不過是回到了生命的原型、時間的圓形,如同沙漏不停迴轉。以沙為喻,藝術家鋪陳出一種宏觀而延伸的視野,也分析出生命虛空的本質,沉澱出最原始的狀態。以沙為度量,有限卻也無限,好像僧侶手中撥動的念珠,在轉動間,意念便可昇華,所有的物象可以回歸到單純的本質。

Symbols of time circles can often be detected in the works of Lee Mingwei and Tse Su-Mei. For example, in Lee Mingwei's Guernica in Sand (2006),sand is employed as a metaphor for a philosophy of life such as "dust to dust". Similarly, in Tse Su-Mei's Personal Times and The Desert Sweepers, we can see the artist ponder over the process of time by the sound of the sand. As time passes along with the sand, the sweeper also piles up the sand of time. Death could be regarded as a return to the origin of life or the starting point of the circle, which is just like continuously turning a sandglass over. Using sand as a metaphor, the artists show an extensive macro vision for life by revealing its nature of emptiness, and by extracting its most primitive prototype. On the other hand, using sand as a measure shows the limits as well as limitlessness of life which resemble the beads in the hand of a monk. As the beads slide through the monk's fingers, all thoughts are sublimated, and all worldly phenomena can then be essentialized into their purest and simplest form of existence.
