The Soul Of Stream: Hsu Ming-Feng 2018 Solo Exhibition

Article by Woan-Jen HSU

Between 1985 and 1990, Hsu Ming-Feng has won the first prize for the 1st to 6th Council for Cultural Affairs Print Competition for six consecutive years. Hsu is renowned for his prints and is frequently seen across the most important prints exhibitions in the country, such as the International Biennial Print Exhibit ROC, National Printmaking Exhibition, and National Art Exhibition ROC, proof of Hsu’s acclaimed career as an artist.

However, through close inspection of Hsu’s works and his method of expression, viewers will discover that Hsu does not merely seek to excel the techniques of new year prints or prints in general, but more importantly, pursues metaphysical connotations through his art. As someone with strict standards towards himself, Hsu never gains satisfaction through prizes and awards. Hsu pushes himself to arrange at least one solo exhibition each year to display his experiments with new media and to express his ideas and sentiments.

The curation of the 2018 Hsu Ming-Feng solo exhibition is centered around the theme “The Soul Of Stream” The reason for this is this is that we noticed that Hsu Ming-Feng has broken free from traditional frameworks and transcended the limitations of prints. Hsu integrates different materials and creative techniques in a single work, gradually accumulating energy throughout the complicated creative process, finally giving birth to a profound sense of spiritual meaning.

What is the meaning of life? The human life can be seen as nothing more than a collection of time and space. Human beings are constantly moving between the past and present, standing amid time and space that is connected but separate at the same time. Amongst the layering of time and space, human beings are like embodiments, a form of existence. “Movements of the Soul” is a display of the human condition. The concept of space in “The Soul Of Stream” is portrayed as a city with brick structures; the countryside, spreading outward like a stain. Regardless of the urban or rural scenery, the images have transformed into fragmented memories outside the window amid the fluidity of time, fleeting and leaving splinters of vanishing scenes.

Hsu Ming-Feng attempts to grasp the traces through various methods, breaking through limitations; he has experimented with different creative methods, including printing plates, coating, and paint. The color blocks within the works are arranged in balance, complementing each other while creating depth and layers, just like the harmonious melodies of a musical movement, guiding audiences into poetic imagery. The color black always plays a vital role throughout Hsu’ works. Black is sometimes transformed into thin grid lines that seem to fix the fleeting images, sometimes applied through carefree brushstrokes to create ongoing and flowing mountaintops, or traces of corrosion, expanding their ancient territory, devouring any sign of life. The other colors seem to be fighting the last battle with the black hue. The low-saturated but vibrant colors strive to cover the composition, resembling the mist in distant skies, forming an ever-changing cover. However, the cover reveals the force lying behind, which does not wish to be concealed, agitating restlessly in their state of suppression as the instinct of liveliness overflows.

What is the meaning of life? The human life is definitely more than a collection of time and space. The human life should be the soul, moving amid time and space, breaking free from the chains of darkness and unmoved by the lure of activity, penetrating the dreamlike scenery of this world and moving at ease between the forces of concealing and revealing. Through becoming “The Soul Of Stream” the human life achieves utmost freedom and eternity.

Exhibition A Crooked Love Song, depicting various sentiments of modern life and the many bloopers behind the scenes. Perhaps it is impossible for us to construct relationships with such ease, but through repeated awkward incidents, unsuccessful dialogues, and speechless gazes, we gain more profound memories and longings that further strengthen our minds, making us stronger and more resistant when bonding with others.

Let us take this opportunity to practice our verbal skills in romance. That fact that interactions between people have become neglected, we should learn to cherish the present moment, each transaction of information, and every episode of speech. Grasp hold on to authentic emotions, and be courageous when declaring affection.

Text/ Tuan Tsun-Chen
Intimate is always unspeakable, despite the fact that we rely on language for communication. Intimate needs to be hidden and nurtured; to maintain intimate is to maintain the completeness of the mind which exists outside reason. When we examine the outside world, intimate is hidden, but there are certain places in this world that catch our sight and inspire us to daydream. When this happens, the veil of reality slowly fades away; the vision that was previously clear becomes blurry, while shapes and colors silently merge in a state of absentmindedness. In the image, the horizon dims while the space extend to afar. In a blink of an eye, daydreams lightly descend before our eyes, enlarging and randomly extending the sense of personal intimate in a world of silence. Finally, time fleets and disappears to some place where the sight cannot reach. You come back to your sense, and realize you are still in the present time and space.

The curation of this exhibition is inspired by Gaston Bachelard’s notion of Intimate Immensity in the Poetics of Space. Five young artists, Tan Jui-Wen, Chan Hsiu-Chun, Han Yu, and Lin Yu-Jun, are invited to show their works, each showcasing their personal interpretation of romance. Not only do the works display vast landscapes, but also the internal intimacy of the artist, transformed into depictions of the dazzling and complicated Garden of Eden. As viewers, perhaps we should not treat the images as sceneries we have encountered in real life, but position these immensities as surreal, poetic depictions of views that exist outside of experience. In these works, playful daydreams are given their place, continuously weaving immense and beautiful daydream; this is the most poetic form of salvation that any artist can perform.

Explore the world where you live
The inside of yourself and external circumstances affect each other

Tsai Wei-Cheng - "Transforming after objects” solo exhibition is going to be opened on Jan 14th at Rich Art Gallery. This exhibition is going to be curated by Hsu Woan-Jen who is a famous art criticism professor.This is a new innovative presentation of Tsai Wei-Cheng, in his 20-year-long artistic career.“The human being is the animal of emotions, thus we will be sentimental for surrounding objects.Everyone has the emotions of "joy, anger, sorrow, fear, love, hate, desire," and the changes of the environment make peoples’ hearts ripple and naturally stimulate the desires of the creative.Nevertheless , adhering to Oriental philosophy, Tsai Wei-Cheng holds the spirit of staying while coping with all the changes, also fully demonstrating the symbiosis and coexistence of "emotion" and "change", creating seven new works of “Emotion-Series”.

The exhibition "Transforming after Objects" originates from "Hsieh-He six codes" and "Correspondence to the Object," reflecting the "correspondence" with "transforming" reflecting the pursuit of connecting the internal and external self, which Tsai Wei-Cheng intended to express through his new collection.Tsai Wei-cheng regards himself in the changing form of the Monkey King, to convey the ideas of inside and outside. This blend of subject and object is present in the performance of the artwork.

The exhibition, in essence, preserves the characteristic features of the Monkey King seventy-two series of "Journey to the West"“, "Tightening Ring”,“Golden Cudgel”.However, the shape and the appearance is different compared with the past.The artwork hasn't been polished and decorated deliberately, leaving hand traces of the creative process. It shows an unparalleled freedom when blending and molding.Material clogging caused by the process of clotting,it highlights the bumps and lumps of mud, swaying boldness of color, like an abstract painting.

It makes the artwork appear as a kind of momentum of the flow and feelings,such as the immense sands of the universe.because of specific causes, are converged and shaped in a specific space-time. This is a magical moment that can not be said. The artwork will have to be frozen and eternal.

Rich Art is greatly honored to be invited to participate in the exhibition organized and planned by GAA during Venice Biennale 2017.They are especially pleased to invite Tsai-Wei-Cheng to attend the exhibition, which is one of the three major exhibitions in the word and it's also the most prestigious Venice Exhibition.Tsai Wei-Cheng will bring his artwork 『Iron King Kong- Wearing the courage ,you can be invincible.』 the first time he sets foot in the city which encourages people to take action to pursue their ideals.The exhibition is named "Journey to the West " curated by the curator Dr. Woan-Jen Hsu, She conveys Tsai Wei-Cheng’s works in a brisk, easy to understand and a humorous way.
She profoundly conveys the ancient history of the universe from the cosmological side and outlook on life to the West., in accordance to GAA's theme "time, space, existence" which is meant to evoke the relationship between the environment and people and inspire further discussion and thinking.Global Art Affairs Foundation: The GAA Foundation is a nonprofit organization that is registered and organized entirely by artists in the Netherlands. The aim of GAA is to enhance the world's awakening, the understanding of art ,and art related matters. To explore these topics more deeply from a philosophical perspective through the various themes of art, architecture and culture. The foundation was started in 2005,GAA has been using the subject of time, space, existence to invite artists, architects and people from all over the world to contemplate it.

GAA annually participates in organizing Art and Architecture biennales through its European Cultural Center during the Venice Biennale period. At present, GAA has four official exhibitions in Venice: Palazzo Mora, Palazzo Bembo, Palazzo Michiel and Palazzo Rossini. This time,Tsai wei-cheng’s exhibition will be held at the Palazzo Mora.We welcome you to visit the exhibition.
Cultural interaction between the East and the West has been going on for a very long time. As early as the 3rd year of Zhenguan in the Tang dynasty (AD629), there was Xuanzang the Buddhist monk going west to seek dharma. Xuanzang exited the border from Liangzhou, going through countries in Western Regions, climbing over the Pamir mountains, and eventually arriving in Tianzhu (now India). It took him 16 years to return to Chang’an, the capital of Tang dynasty (AD645). Afterward, Xuanzang translated 75 Buddhist sutras into 1,335 volumes, and he is regarded as the greatest Buddhist sutra translator in Zhongyuan (the central plain of China). These translated Buddhist sutras were subsequently spread to the Korean Peninsula, Japan, Vietnam, and other places through the diplomatic envoys sent to China by other countries, and the translations had a far-reaching impact on the religions, cultures, and arts of the Eastern countries. Great Tang Records on the Western Regions, narrated by Xuanzang and written by his disciple Bianji, not only became the prototype of the later novel Journey to the West but also provided precious information for historical and geographical research to both the East and the West.

Journey to the West, written in the middle of the 16th century, combined the thoughts of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism and is very popular around the world, having been translated into multiple languages. Its storyline, widely known among Taiwan households, mainly describes 81 disasters that a Tang monk and his disciples went through. The Tang monk, inspired by and modeled after Xuanzang, is the protagonist of the novel on the surface, but the focus of the whole storyline is gathered around his most senior disciple, Sun Wukong. Today, approximately 500 years after the completion of Journey to the West, Taiwanese artist Tsai Wei-Cheng is bringing Sun Wukong west (Venice) again with his 72 Series of sculptural work, a series that has great cross-cultural significance.
According to description of Journey to the West, when Nüwa mended the heavens, she left behind a magic stone. That stone absorbed the natural essences of the sun and the moon, and a monkey later burst out of the stone. Taoist patriarch Bodhi taught that monkey the 72 polymorphic transformations, told it how to summon the somersault cloud, and christened it Sun Wukong. Ruyi Jingu Bang, its weapon, was forcibly obtained from Ao Kuang, the dragon king of the Eastern seas, after Sun Wukong created a mess in the Dragon Palace. The magical headband the monkey wore is the Buddhist instrument that the Tang monk used to contain Sun Wukong by reading spells. In the 72 Series created by Tsai Wei-Cheng, the magical headband of Sun Wukong represents tangible and intangible norms, the somersault cloud that allowed Sun Wukong to go everywhere freely represents unfettered dreams, Ruyi Jingu Bang—the size of which can be enlarged and reduced at will—represents flexible power, and the child-like image of Sun Wukong represents the pure and clear inner self. This immutability of the absolute of the inner self reflects the eternal truth of the ever-changing things in this ever-changing world, namely the fundamental postulate is the great primal beginning of all that exists. That statement is what the I Ching would describe as “There is in the changes the great primal beginning. Taiji generates the two primary forces. The two primary forces generate the four images. The four images generate the eight trigrams”. Taiji is the root of the formation of the universe, driving the earth to rotate. Yin and yang, change and static, are both inter-restricting and yet inter-promoting, interrelated and becoming a unified body.

Tsai Wei-Cheng is bringing his 72 series to Venice and allowing Sun Wukong of Journey to the West to go west again. This trip to the west is no longer about retrieving Buddhist sutras but taking Eastern philosophy to the Western world. Deep kiss has the sweet poetic feel of immersive love. Iron King Kong is the self-dialogue of self-proclamation and self-encouragement; fear does not come from external sources but from inside the heart. The Other Day describes the circumstances of life that are ever-changing, and change is the eternal truth of life. Tsai Wei-Cheng uses this contemporary art language to compose this divertimento about Sun Wukong going west. The series is brisk, simple, and humorous, yet it profoundly conveys the concept of the universe and life throughout the long history of the Orient.
*81 is the square of 9, the biggest among single-digit numbers, and in the East, it is a metaphor for a very large number that is close to infinite.

自分の意志で生きていく、特定の時間で意志を明確し、それだけ。 アルドゥル.ショーペンハウアー

私たちは自由の道を生きていく、手を開いて、精神のエネルギーがもらえる。 蔡尉成さんの作品は子供の笑顔、遊んだり、座ったり、動いたりと自然だ。全てのボディーランゲージを表現している。かのように、作品の線の流れは、純粋で自然な動き。蔡尉成さんの作品の中の”雲”は自由意念の代表だ。大量の”雲”と関係している天気の変化や、雨具など、自由意念を表示している。 蔡尉成さんは自分や宇宙を探索し、万物を感じ、自己会話でしばられないような作品を生み出した。

意念が自由になるからこそ、自由と言える。 作品に自由について、自然な表示が感じられることをぜひ見てほしい。

Flying across the Northern Hemisphere frozen by the cold winter, Rich Art is going to Lion City, the city nourished by the warm and easy weather in the South, to participate in the art feast hold in the well-known hotel, Marina Bay Sands in the end of January in 2016. Coming to its sixth edition, Art Stage Singapore, which is one of the most significant international art events in Asia, has been spreading Asian contemporary art to the world. In order to cope with the rapidly changing art market, Lorenzo Rudolf, the founder and director of Art Stage Singapore, utilizes diverse strategies, striving to make a breakthrough in the field of art. In 1990s, he had the traditional form of Art Basal transformed into Art Basal and Design Miami, the annual twin exhibitions respectively included art and design. Moreover, this year, Rudolf and the Singapore government jointly devote to combining public art and curating platform by introducing Southeast Asia Forum Exhibition.

To welcome a brand new age, in 2016, Tsai Wei-Cheng is ready with his Sky creative serial and making its debut at Art Stage Singapore. “Liberty” is an important word as well as a symbol in Tsai’s artistic works, and it is also a powerful component that is remarkably recognized in the Sky creative serial. During the process of doing artistic creations, Tsai tries to apply different kinds of medium, such as stainless steel, bronze, etc., to maximize the innovative elements in each of his art piece. Among Sky creative serial, the unique elements of “six senses” which are the characteristics cultivated by his painstaking efforts on every work are the unduplicated energy; the energy empowers Tsai’s creations that could comfort and enrich our inner life.

Started in 2016 with Art Stage Singapore, Rich Art is set for the splendid art event, which will surely enable Tsai Wei-Cheng to take audience into a pure and noise-free universe with his genuine and harmonious works.
