Taipei Fine Arts Museum presents Lee Tzu-hsun’s “The Alien Galaxy,” on view through October 14, 2018.
The exhibition presents three works by the artist: “Maze Theater”, “Mystery of the Glass Beads Game”, and the recent “Sequential Aircraft.” The exhibition also showcases sketches from “Maze Theater” and smaller scale creations from 1998 to 2013. The artist draws his inspiration from personal and private experiences as well as his own concepts of what a reimagined world would look like. “He excels at portraying transient emotions using highly realistic mediums and approaches the connection between these two aspects becoming a unique characteristic of his works,” the gallery says.
“Lee is a maverick artist, who carries the responsibility of ‘creator’ to explore every possibility that art can bring to humanity. Lee’s artwork always reveals the voice of the new generation. He has adopted the abstract form to show the harmonious universal order. This is not only a brand new art experiment, but also predicts the self-evolution and innovation of art,” writes the Pace Gallery.
Considered one of the leading contemporary artists in Taiwan, Lee always tries to break the stiff boundaries between different media by experimenting and combining physical structures, materials, movements, sounds and lights in his artwork in order to create a dream-like imagination in a concrete space. He works in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, architecture, theatrical design and performance arts.
Lee Tzu-hsun was born in 1973 in Taipei, Taiwan. He currently lives and works in Cologne, Germany and Beijing, China. Lee graduated from the National Fine Arts School of Dusseldorf, Germany in 2003. He has shown and gained popularity both locally and internationally, including exhibitions such as “Love Temple” at China Animamax Biennial 2009-2010; Today Art Museum, Beijing, China; “In de Ban Van de Ring” at provinciaal Centrum voor Beeldende Kunsten-Begijnhof Hasselt, Belgium, 1999. In 2001, “Love Temple” won the most popular prize in the National Gallery in Baden-Baden, Germany; Maze Theater was shown in Great Theater of the World: 2002 Taipei Biennial, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taiwan; “Mechanical Soul: Aliens Aircrafts” in both Taipei Fine Arts Museum and Pace Beijing in 2012. Lee was awarded Friedrich Wurttemberg Prize by the Cologne government in 2006.
