Contemporary artist Hsieh Chun-te (謝春德) has launched a new visual exhibition "NEXEN--The Parallel Universe of Hsieh Chun-Te--The Final Chapter" in continuation of his solo exhibitions "The Parallel Universe of Hsieh Chun-te – Brave The World" in 2016 and "The Parallel Universe of Hsieh Chun-te –Ten-ka" in 2018 at National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts' 101 exhibition room that from June 31 to Sep. 26.
The curatorial team describes this exhibition as an exploration of a mysterious world and an invitation to adventure. The exhibition contains flat images, dynamic images, sculptures, installations, simulations, spatial shaping, flowing text and other contemporary visual and contextual fields. In the illusion of primitive calling from the depths of the universe, through the narrative of the stage-like space and the extension of the scenes, the audience is able to have a deeper understanding to that which transcends death, and discover a common place in the soul.
Minister of Culture Lee Yung-te pointed out in a specially produced prerecorded video that Hsieh Chun-te is a very important contemporary artist in Taiwan. His creative field is not only limited to photography, his diverse creative methods also bring about brand new sensory experiences to the audience every time and provoke our thoughts.
NTMoFA’s director Liang Yung-fei (梁永斐) noted that this exhibition focuses on new media images and sculptures that are mainly flat to present cross-disciplinary works – courageous, daring, innovative and experimental.
Mr. Hsieh has crossed different fields for many years, and has made good use of multiple media in building a rich narrative space, she added.
