If on that ship
Tang, Ya-Wen Solo Exhibition
I always wonder how wonderful it would be if I were on that ship, if I could go everywhere over the world with that young man who later become my father, if I could take part in all his journeys before I was even born. This is the first action taken to pursue and satisfy those desires, by imagining standing next to him on the deck and staring at the sea with him. Both the objects and video clips in this exhibition are deemed as materialized existences. They exist independently while being complimentary like every chapter in a novel. They are to complete one another.
“The ship is an extension of the land and a moving universe.” The ship follows the pencil trace on the map, sails around the world and goes back and forth through the sequence of time. That is exactly where all the half-fictional events happen and establish the truth. As the narrative goes further, the subject appears bit by bit and becomes clearer and truer.

Talking With｜WANG Ya-Hui, WANG Pin-Hua
Born in Taoyuan. Work in Taipei, Taiwan.
The work is a mixed media installation combining machines, mechanic components and ready-made objects that made in to carrier of sentimental objects. Through the abstract movements of machines, the subtle feelings that are beyond the aspect of both abstract and reality are delivered. Within the abstract timeline in the work, the artist strives to create a place with no specific coordinate position, to further rebuild a micro history with an aspect of feminine writing and interpretation that gives the sense of personal identification under the traditional masculine culture.
