Memories through Cycle
―Images by RongRong & inri and Yuan Goang-ming

July 23, 2016, to September 19, 2016

It seems that, due to the progress of East Asia, such uniquely new photography and moving images that we have never seen before are increasing in this region. In this exhibition, we introduce two units of artists who reinterpret ordinary life and traditions through new media and depict nature, family and communion between people by beautifully poetic photographs and videos: RongRong & inri (born in 1968 in China and born in 1973 in Japan / photography) and Yuan Goang-ming (born in 1965 in Taiwan / video art).
