Open-Contemporary Art Center (OCAC) presents PETAMU PROJECT, a group exhibition that seeks to open alternative ways of viewing maps. The show stems from OCAC’s ongoing engagements in Indonesia and Malaysia, as well as curator Rikey Tenn’s initiative “No Man’s Land,” which organized artist residencies as well as research projects that involved translations and interviews in the region. In these projects, participating artists cultivated different visions that were then materialized into artistic projects based on different points on the Malay archipelago. “By reimagining the ‘window’ of different spaces as a reference to the ‘border’ on the map, the viewer can enter and exit different visualized contexts through the spatial interface,” Tenn writes. Jeffrey Lim (林猶進) is a Malaysian artist who works with a camera for silver printing photography. He captures the portraits of people as he moves through the city as well as more remote communities of indigenous tribes. For the PETAMU PROJECT Lim collaborates with fellow artist Posak Jodian, who both journeyed together throughout different sites in Taiwan, encountering disparate communities. “Together they tread through the rivers and the fields, hoping to summon the question on identity and culture,” Tenn writes.

Taipei’s Museum of Contemporary Art presents Minimalism & Sensibility ─ Exhibition of Tung Ho Steel International Artist Residency Program (低限命題.感性空間─東和鋼鐵國際藝術家駐廠創作展), a two-person sculpture exhibition by Lee Tsai-chien (李再鈐) and Kazuo Yuhara. The show is a presentation of works created by the two artists during their residency at Tung-ho Steel Factory in Miaoli. The residency program is organized by the Tung-ho Steel Culture Foundation and supported by the National Culture and Arts Foundation since 2012. Each year the foundation invites a Taiwanese and foreign artist to work in the factory, where they are supported by professional equipment and personnel. Lee and Kazuo were resident artists last year at Tung-ho, and together in this exhibition they present 7 new, large-scale sculptures made from metal waste. The two artists share an affinity to the Western tradition of minimalism, which they combine with their own cultural backgrounds. Lee’s work involves H-beam structures that are reconfigured into creative forms. Kazuo incorporates different textural metal sheets and mesh to create contemplative spatial installations.
