TKG+ is pleased to present Yuan Goang-Ming: An Uncanny Tomorrow. Comprising videos, photographs, and a kinetic installation, this solo exhibition revolves around the concept of dwelling, examining man’s relationship with the environment, and the profound impact they have on one another.
Dwelling, a looping video piece inspired by German philosopher Martin Heidegger (1889-1976), captures the serene living room of a middle-class household that explodes and returns intact. Heidegger believed that harmony among the sky, earth, divinities, and man is key in peaceful dwelling of mankind. This belief is the starting point for Yuan’s own inquiry into human existence.
Socially conscious, Yuan incorporates elements from current events into his work, such as controversies over nuclear power plants and Taiwan-China trade deals. Through a careful wielding of video techniques and film theories, Yuan challenges viewers’ perception of reality, and transforms quotidian imagery into a poignant critique of the status quo in Taiwan.
