The Uncontainable Tales of a Paradise (2016)
Waley Art, Taipei, Taiwan
In spring 2015 Pei-Hsuan Wang launched her long-term project Made of Star-Stuff: Imagining Outsides at the Center of the world--a romantic, evolving social exercise that begins in Hong Kong, and gradually expands to reach Taiwan and Elsewhere. It has spawned a variety of projects, including this 2016 exhibition, The Uncontainable Tales of a Paradise.
Through storytelling, participatory art practices, and field research, an overwhelming body of video documentation, drawings, texts, and tales is collected. These seemingly fragmented life experiences are treated as tender and malleable agent here, bridging individuals from diverse places.
