The artist attempts to recreate a space based on his visual memories. He renders his visual experience of everyday life into linear, tangible objects, which lend themselves new expressions and create an entirely new experience. Here, the rigid stainless steel takes on a soft stroke that sketches out the artist’s imagination
Budding artist Jen Ta-Hsien adopts the linearity of stainless steel to depict both emptiness and fullness. The suspended sphere symbolizes the hope and vitality of the city. A careful examination reveals some miniaturized urban elements: sturdy wires bending gently to form a utility pole, benches and trees on the side of the roads, trucks and urban houses… all of which illustrate our notions of the city.
