Note: This article originally stems from the MNML series: “Art-in-Production 3: Chen, Che-wei + Enkaryon”. Here Enkaryon responded to the sorted local aesthetics, firstly unraveled in “Oblivion”, Chen, Che-wei’s first solo exhibition in the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, from as varied aspects as psychiatry or the history of epilepsy, space arrangement of Taiwanese nationality or mentality during Japaneses colonial times, to the care for historical landscape. With several “found objects” revived in the art history and specific void of history (such as surrealism) as references, what other possibilities can be seen in art?
