This show is called 'yyyy', well, you may hold on many doubts on your mind, but no worries, please carefully read the information below.

The theme

From the traditional painting art to the experimental film, the expression of artwork can be read from different perspective,through the understanding of us, each time of reading may reduce the original messages of artworks or the intention of an artist. In turn, to the idea of the sound, which is different,that because the way of transmission is direct, aggressive or even violent.

Sound originates from our material world, however, formed as independent- without any interruption of physical limits. Sound means freedom- surrounding us, closing to our imagination, inspiring consideration.

'yyyy' questions that how the symbolic phenomenon can form the industry of contemporary art, in which undertake the process of artistic translation of public circumstance. Here, the sound as a medium, through the distinction between the 'Miniature' to the 'Gigantic', from the 'individuality' to the 'publicity'.
