Yahon Chang
Yahon Chang
 The Question of Beings 蒼生問 ~56th International Art
Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia
 Yahon Chang has reflected upon his life experiences by
employing a mode of meditative style portraiture that
resonates with his feelings of rejection, struggle,
acceptance and love in this world. These portraits of
sentient beings, while offering a variety of subject matter,
present cohesion through the singularity of their
compositional style. Implying a spiritual connection to
the tradition of Chinese shrines, they evoke a feeling of
commemoration for those situated in the past, present
and future, while simultaneously encompassing their
greatness and mediocrity, achievements and failures, etc.
Candy Bird
Candy Bird
 Based in Taipei, Taiwan, Candy Bird is a mural artist
whose international portfolio has been expanding
rapidly. He has tagged decrepit concrete facades in
Beijing and Berlin, filled up the walls of boutique spaces
in Taipei and Tokyo, and painted with children as an
outreach to communities in Myanmar and Brazil.
 Trained in conventional oil paintings, Candy Bird now
works with bucketsand spray. His satirical characters –
the large-skulled figures for which he is known – at
once make a mockery of the urban graveyards in which
we walk, and at the same time revitalize them, bringing
an aesthetic vibrance which he has spread across the
world, from the brick bastion of megacities to the stucco
siding of rural hamlets.
Wen-Fu Yu
Wen-Fu Yu
 Growing up around his family’s bamboo crafts
business, Wen-fu Yu acquired knowledge of
traditional craftsmanship at young age. He was
born in 1968 in Douliu Yunlin County and moved
with his parents to Zhushan in Nantou County.
Besides bamboo craft, he also developed strong
interest in painting, calligraphy and seal carving. Yu
eventually decided to retire from the air force nine
years to pursue a creative life of crafts and artmaking.
Yi-Li Ye
Yi-Li Ye
 In recent years, Yi-li Yeh’s creations have involved the
integration of “parodic” clothing style with role-playing live
performance, adding post-production video recordings as the
final stage of the creative process. The outcome is an art
vocabulary and performance form that is filled with the artist’s
individual charm.
 Yi-li Yeh’s creative process started from the soft thinking
based on hilarity, nonsensicalness, mockery, and kuso,
concluding when the design of “bacteria-person” was
conceived. The bacteria-person, endowed with a physical body,
moves freely through the corners of nature and urban city. The
“bacteria” is faced with multiple choices, carrying multiple
personalities and multiple identities; it is always evolving,
adapting to every possible environmental condition that might
come to its way.

 I travel in this mutated environment only to find the
balance between perfection and wreckage.
 Hailing from Mukumugi tribe of Huanlian, the Truku
artist Don Don Hounwu straddles music writing and
acting. It has been his goal to make music that combines
indigenous traditional instruments, such as Jew’s harp
and xylophone, and western instruments. In the recent
years, he started tackling issues of the indigenous
community through various art forms including
performing art, video art and installations, creating a
distinctive art style of his own.
Wang, Hsiao Hua
Wang, Hsiao Hua
 Wang reintroduced raw materials such as stones and soil
collected from the local region which shows a
strongaffinity of her interest in the place of origin, in the
relationship between people’s acute reflections and
personal experience. It is more of a kind of a shared
experience and reconnection engaged with the local
people about place, locality, time distance and
measurement of the nature and related matters. Earth
became a medium for direct references to land or out
living environment.
 In pointing to connections between earth and other
materials (or human, or the environment), it puts forth
interpretations for understanding experiences of actual

1979, and is currently an MFA student at the Department

theory of the cyborg, his works focus on the
combination/hybridization of robotic and organic lives

human desire from an alternative perspective.
