Currently on display at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum’s (TFAM), Time Games: Contemporary Appropriations of the Past brings together 150 works, dating back to the early 1990s, by 23 contemporary Taiwanese artists working in mixed media, painting and installation art. Among the artists participating in the exhibition is calligraphy artist Tong Yang-tze, who has invited two artists that work in different areas — singer-songwriter Cheer Chen and architect Eric Yao — to collaborate with her on her creative project titled “A Movement without Sound.” Each individual uses their own musicality in selecting 24 works or less from Yang’s 100-piece calligraphic series, recombining them and putting them on display in succession at the exhibition.

Chen’s part of the exhibit, which is already on display, takes the theme “lightness, soul,” and uses 14 of Tong’s works to express women’s unique soulfulness and sensitivity as well as the temporal and spatial fluidity of music. Eric Yao’s part of the exhibit will begin on May 8, working under the theme “a contradictory pursuit within music,” to represent Tong’s work. Time Games: Contemporary Appropriations of the Past will be on display until June 10.
