"Madden reality"

The Taipei Art Group evolved into "Hantoo" in 1998 with the pulse of culture and generation change. Art presents no longer seriousness, but the reflection of life and society by the artists.
Through forms of 2-dimensional paintings, 3-D digital images, and multiple media, elements of "city," "self-portrait,"?"popular culture,"?"classic,"?and "ruins" are delivered by methods of make-up, patches, or dislocation in art languages such as sarcasm, derision, random, or ambiguity in order to describe the artists'?perspective towards Taiwanese society.
The essence of differences delivers the artistic characteristics of local cultures, and shifts the frame of Taiwanese art in the system of Western arts to expose the realms of reality and imagination as well as the shape of art during changing eras.
Based on this goal, the exhibition is named "Madden reality"?as the variation and liberation of the Post-Taipei Art Group artists that transformed them into Hantoo Group. The analysis and re-interpretation of Taiwanese art and society set off the imagination of modern Taiwanese art.
Artists of Taipei Art Group, also the founders of Hantoo, include: Kuo Wei-Kuo, Yang Mao-Lin, John Lu, Wu Tien-Chang, Lu Hsien-Ming, Lien Chien-Hsing, Lee Min-Jong, and Yang Ren-Min.
The exhibition will be on display at Gallery 3A ~ 3C from January 21 through April 5, with works including I Am Flying in the Sky (Kuo Wei-Kuo), Be In The Same Boat (Wu Tien Chang), The Last Gardener (Lien Chien-Hsin), Unstable Ties - Happening (Yang Jen Ming), Guess And Ask Its Name (LEE Min Jong).
