Curated by Amy Cheng of TheCube Project Space in Taipei, The Ouroboros is an international joint exhibition that marks the second phase in the 2018-2019 Taiwan-Luxembourg Exchange Program. This exhibition will be synchronously on view at TheCube Project Space in Taipei and the Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art Contemporain in Luxembourg.
Treating the imagery of ouroboros as the main theme running through all the exhibits, The Ouroboros is intended to envisage and investigate people’s responses to the general question of survival in the contemporary world via the artists’ astute observations on realities and phenomena. This exhibition features video works engaging in multilayered dialogues on key issues ranging from reflections upon the survival system of human society in the Anthropocene and human imagination of the future to the development and change in the relational trinity of humanity-technology-nature and discussions of Cosmopolitics.
A total of eleven pieces of video work by several artists, including Chi-Yu Wu (Taiwan), Yin-Ju Chen (Taiwan), Chieh-Jen Chen (Taiwan), Tzu-Ling Lee (Taiwan), Ayoung Kim (South Korea) and Tao Zhou (China).
