This autumn, with bounteous artistic force, Double Square brings together excellent works of Taiwanese artists from different generations. Through a vast array of media, the exhibition displays diverse perspectives embodied by new media installation, video, photography, painting, and sculpture. Double Vision is an epitome of Taiwanese contemporary art, truthfully and compellingly illustrating social phenomena and the atmosphere of our time with humorous satire, realistic shrewdness, rational inspection, or unnamable resistance. The opening reception is scheduled at 3 pm on September 11, and the exhibition ends on October 2.
The curatorial concept of Double Vision is inspired by the founding objective of the gallery. Looking back, the gallery has already been open for more than a year. With a self-examining eye that helps us re-adjust our pace, Double Vision plays on the clinical term of medicine and the condition of multiple perspectives to explore the diversity in interpretation of visual perception as well as the multifarious means to construct meanings. The exhibition reflects how the gallery endeavors to redefine itself and its attitude in terms of exhibition, space, and market managing. In addition to creating the possibility of expressing diversified meanings, the gallery also aims to discuss the relationship between viewing audience and artists. When a work of art is completed, the bonding relationship between the artwork and the artist is severed, and the artwork becomes as a communicative medium, an object that both the audience and the artist gaze upon. The audience's interpretation based on the projection of personal experiences and the constructed representation of the artist might be mutually complementary or contradicting. What does the resonance with the artwork offer the audience? How does the artist deal with the feedback and repercussion when his or her work becomes the medium? The various independently indeterminate factors produced in the communicating process create intriguing breaks to be explored.
