綠川計畫成果展(台灣)| Green River Project Exhibition (Part-1 Taiwan)

The departure point of ‘Green River Project’ concept is to expose the disguise of massive developments of cities while destroying natural resources and ecosystem. Since cities have developed around rivers and the population concentrating to the cities, transportation, economy and culture always follow these developments of cities. Cities were born based on rivers. On the contrary, cities have lost their original appearance for the sake of their ‘future vision’. If rivers vanish from every city, what will happen in our life?

Mobile Scapehood – WANG Pei-Hsuan solo Exhibition 6.21-7.19

“The French philosopher Gaston Bachelard once wrote about what he termed the poetics of space. He believed that what we endow a space with poetically and emotionally is much more important than the physicality of the space itself. Such objective concept as distance here is converted into something meaningful and even story-filled—an imaginative geography made possible."
