ABOUT THE PROJECT

The project “I’m Writing You Tomorrow”, homage to Chinese painting and drawing. This project is presented on a semitransparent wall, done in a traditional Chinese technique, Suji. The artist uses it to throw shadows on its screen to express my Honor and love to Chinese Art. The project was presented in the Taiwan Art Biennial 2011, The National Taiwan Museum, Taichung, Stux Gallery, NY 2009 and The Eric Dupon Gallery 2009, Paris. It is vertically hung, in double surface formations, made of hollowed fabric screens and polymorphous networks (wires, fabrics and metal pipes) and is not complicated to be installed.
