Project Fulfill Art Space is pleased to invite Chen Sung-Chih as curator for the group exhibition ‘Obliteration’, featuring three young Taiwanese contemporary artists: painters Ou Jing-Yun and Peng Yu-Tzu and performance artist Chen Jun-Yu. All three artists were born in the 1990s and received their artistic training at the National Taipei University of Arts; although each possessing uniquely distinct styles, through their creative practices and conceptual discourse, the exhibition explores how a new generation of artists engage and reinterpret a new era, responding to the natural environment, historical legacy, sensibility and identity. The exhibition opens on Saturday 25 July, particularly worth noting is every Saturday during the exhibition period, Chen Jun-Yu will perform his 8-hour non-stop performance in the gallery.

'Obliteration', the title of this exhibition, owes its inspiration to the idiom “the seas run dry and the rocks crumble” which subtly implies eternity and unreachability. Reversing the sequence of the idiom, this exhibition starts by explicating and contemplating the intuitively observed differences between external phenomena and internal spirit. This proposition suggests a symbiotic relationship and mutual intervention between humanity and the material world, while witnessing a new cycle that begins with destruction. Treating their creative thinking as the point of departure, the three artists in this exhibition: Ou Jing-Yun, Peng Yu-Tzu and Chen Jun-Yu meticulously address the questions as to how digital media alters the consciousness and causes us to hallucinate, and how humanity can respond to space, time, the environment, and history in the era of post-globalization. Our co-existence with a myriad of entities drift within a turbulent space and time, accelerating the process of our birth and death, but also galvanizes us to transcend the confines of our pure intuition. A common thread in the three artists’ works is the exploration of the corporeal schemata defecting from politics, adeptly examining the inner tension between visual and psychological dynamics. Encompassing the classical and the contemporary, the artists experiment with media, reconfigure forms, and revolutionize concepts, hence their innovative works, where they evolved their distinctive styles.
