Statement |

The problematic of this curatorial project shall emphasize how images shape our social landscape via technological mediums, while seek to deconstruct the meaning of images in the installation process of works. Through adaptation of the pop art work’s title into that of this exhibition, it adopts the force of promotion on the aesthetic discourses in the art history as the annotation of this exhibition.

While the diverse creative contexts and varied presentations in the works of the seven artists, i.e. Wang Ya-Hui, Huang Hai-Hsin, Chang Hui-Hsin, Chuang Pei-Xin, Tsai Tsung-Hsun, Yin Guan-Hong, and Hsieh Yu-Cheng, put aside the framework for material classification and purposefully blur the differences among light, images, and screens in terms of material, they re-illustrate and advance the discourse framework of images in the contemporary art through a second aestheticization of image medium by the contemporary art. Meanwhile, an image aesthetic perspective distinct from narrative image is proposed on the premise of concurrent advancements of deconstruction and construction.
