Stanley Fung’s ‘Saint Anonymous’ to be on display in New York Dec. 3-30, 2015

The first solo eixhibition entitled Saint Anonymous by the Hong Kong-born Taiwan photographer Stanley Fung will be on display at inCube Arts SPACE in New York December 3 to 30, 2015. The portrait series ‘Saint Anonymous’ were shot in monochrome, and most of the models are friends and members of Fung’s church. To Fung, who is a full-time clergyman, photography is more than an art or a hobby. “For him, photography is not only an artistic method for expressing the self, but a way to photograph the souls of mankind,” said Taiwanese photographer Yuan Yi-zhong. He added that in the history of portrait photography, Edward Curtis, whose works are mostly those of North American Indians, is without a doubt the foremost pioneer in using photography to capture the soul. Though Fung found it difficult not to be influenced by Curtis and his works, he still managed to create his own style, which is an amazing feat. As a pastor, Fung discovered hints of biblical revelations amongst his fellow church members. From this, he successfully conveyed the magical powers of faith, those that make one feel calm, fulfilled, strong, and satisfied. These portraits exude a sense of spiritual sublimation, and express …

Taiwan music group “A Moving Sound” Performing across 6 states in U.S.

A Moving Sound(Sheng Don聲動)from Taiwan, has slowly but surely been establishing itself as one of the world’s most unique and artistic expressions of music from the Far East. As Lee Ann Hahn director of programming for the prestigious Grand Performances series in LA said, “No one is doing what they’re doing”. A Moving Sound performed this past July at one of Europe’s most respected music festivals, Paleo festival in Nyon, Switzerland, (where Sting performed later the same evening). Paleo ‘s artistic director Jacques Monnier said simply, “A Moving Sound was absolutely brilliant”. A Moving Sound has been presenting, show by show, a reinterpretation of Taiwanese/Chinese music that has wowed audiences and experts with its sheer artistic depth. Marco Werman reported on PRI that AMS is “one of the few groups offering truly creative music from Asia” and Tom Pryor from National Geographic online music stated “A Moving Sound is one of the most original outfits working in the world music arena today”. The group has been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered, The Discovery Channel and is frequently programmed on BBC Radio 3.

Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University from September 11st through December 20th, 2015. This exhibition features installation of new media art from Taiwanese artist, Huang Hsin-Chien. The installation combines everyday objects with real-time video and virtual stereoscopic computer-generated animation to explore memory, dreams, and what lies beneath the surface of consciousness. The exhibition space will display the four objects, worn leather shoes, a camera, a watch, and dentures in a glass – which were remade based on Huang Hsin-Chien’s memory, then captured by a high-resolution camera. These objects are placed on pedestals with one-way mirrors above them and, similar to an interrogation chamber, behind the mirrors is an observation room. The audience can view the items in the room they’re displayed in, but in the dark room on the other side of the mirrors they can also, wearing 3D glasses, watch real-time images of the objects on 3D projectors as they are captured by cameras. These images merge in real time into virtual 3D images on top of them. These objects are from the old apartment building …
