Franz Bette born in the middle of Germany, his thinking and his work are anchored in European culture. For the exhibition in ALIEN Art Centre and for the new audience in Taiwan, he has developed a body of work which internalises his experience in Asia. For this he allows new elements to intervene in his artistic approach. His Western-influenced vocabulary of metal has been expanded by materials with Asian connotations, such as porcelain, bamboo, wood and textile.

For over half a century, the American artist James Turrell (b. 1943) has worked directly with light and space to create artworks that engage viewers with the limits and wonder of human perception. His fascination with the phenomena of light is related to his personal, inward search for mankind’s place in the universe. Influenced by his Quaker upbringing, which he characterizes as having a ‘straightforward, strict presentation of the sublime,’ Turrell’s art prompts greater self-awareness through a similar discipline of silent contemplation, patience and meditation.


*The installation starts at 10:00-12:30 and 14:30-17:00.

After the rain, a few raindrops clang onto the power cable. Pulled by gravity, they glided and glittered against the colourless sky...We try to capture illuminating moments amidst the colourless flow of time. “Once upon a time,” one of our interviewees noted, “Some safeguarded this place in such a way.” In this very room where soldiers reported for duty, Crossing pays tribute to those who contributed to history. The past shapes the present. Let us contemplate these distant voyages, and reflect on what is immediately ours.

In the 17th Century, Isaac Newton discovered that prism could divide lights into different colors due to dispersion effect. Based on RGB color model, this exhibition adds shades and wavelength on top of spatial and historical axes. Artists Luo Yijun, Gao Yating and Tang Yawen respond to history and southern images of the venue. The exhibition functions like a prism in the architecture. Artists put historical trade incidents, contexts and unseen personal moments into their works, and transform into new colors and perspectives.
