Exploring what lies inside

For his solo show, Inca Pan has repurposed commissioned works into an imaginary, introspective world of caves

Pan hopes the pieces in his exhibition will incite new ways of thinking about one’s identity or place in society.

“I actively look for ideas that oppose my previous assumptions. In my creative work and writing, there’s always room for improvement so I’m constantly seeking new questions and answers,” he says.

Creating illustrations for newspapers is one way that Pan pushes himself as an artist. “When I read other people’s articles, I’ll encounter topics that I wouldn’t normally draw, such as tea ceremonies or cooking,” Pan says. “Although it is more difficult, I’ll research the topic and force myself to create, which often leads to new discoveries. This is very different from creating my own artwork, where I’ll draw things I’m already familiar with.”

“Becoming a Cave” will remain open until Friday. Pan plans to further develop his body of work before exhibiting at the Taipei Illustration Fair this September.
