TAIPEI (The China Post) — Hsu Yunghsu ’s (徐永旭) new exhibition, “A World Made Light” (以光織界), runs until March 2020 at the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts.
Hsu drew inspiration from the Greek story of Sisyphus and undertook the “Sisyphean Task” (an enduring and laborious effort) of creating works in a wide range of sizes, the largest of which is nearly two stories high.
The artist has long studied the intricacies of pottery-making. Textures, weight, and transparency are all factors in which Hsu explored in his works.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the exhibition, He expressed hopes that visitors will be able to see through his creative work, such as “Gestures” (手勢), that are synonymous with the artist’s “Existence”(存在).
The flow of “Light” and “Lightness” are also elements in which he plays with. The surrounding light shapes the various works and invites you to bask in the full extent of the artist’s effort.
