◼︎Wu Chi-Tsung
Born in 1981 in Taipei, Taiwan, currently based in Taipei. Graduated from Taipei National University of the Arts in 2004. He began creation of artworks by experimenting movies and photographs around 2002 while pursuing his architectural research at a graduate school. His artworks featuring traditional eastern arts such as Chinese landscape painting and ink painting expressed though contemporary media manipulate the limit of visions and effect of illusion thus wear poetic atmosphere.
Selected solo exhibitions include IT Park Gallery (2004, 2009/Taipei, Taiwan), “Re-calibrate” (2013/ CFCCA, Manchester, UK), “The Storey and The Peter” (2014/ Site Gallery, Sheffield, UK).

◼︎Chen Shu-Chiang
Born in 1969 in Hsinchu, Taiwan, currently based in Taipei. Graduated from Art Department of Taibei Private Taibei High School in 1988. His practice includes mostly sculpture and painting. He prefers to create his works with natural materials such as sea-washed bones, artless rocks, rusty iron and especially plants. For him, the morph of natural objects is a symbolic form of nature’s chaos, and is labeled “Time.” The chaos is like a quick shot photo of memory of a time fragment, and such things have always been calling and appealing to the artist.
Selected solo exhibition include Mountain & Stream, (Chiayi Tea Expo, 2017/ Chiayi, Taiwan), Secluded/Psychitecture, (Wistaria tea house, 2013 / Taipei, Taiwan), Silver John (Show Gallery, 2012/ Kaohsiung, Taiwan). Residency includes Headlands Center for the Art in San Francisco, 2013. Major awards received include Premium Selected at the 5th Taipei County Fine Arts Exhibition and Bronze award from the International Biennial Print and Drawing Exhibition in 1993 (Taipei, Taiwan).
