ROUND-and-FULL-NESS in a Contemporary Sense 當代圓滿

July 25~Aug19, 2012
21, sec 1, Mingshen East Road, Taipei 104, Taiwan

After a long journey exhibiting at the Designmuseo Helsinki and Ventura Lambrate Milan, the first collection of HAN Gallery finally travels back to Taipei, Taiwan to make its first public appearance in its hometown.

The phrase "Round-and-full-ness" in Chinese language means "fulfillment in every aspects of life". It is an idiom commonly used by elder generations, traditionally referring to the overall success in the mundane aspects of life.

The idea of "Round-and-full-ness", so powerful as it has been regarded the ideal way of life for the Chinese, however, is outdated because it is associated with the values of the past generations.

The curating focus of the exhibition follows the central philosophy of HAN Gallery, to re-interpret Chinese culture and to translate them into contemporary contexts with a fresh eye, also to comment on the superficial “modernistic” approach that is overwhelming not only in Taiwan but also in many parts of Asia.

Eight concepts, which were proposed by participating designers in order to contribute to the central theme, are divided into four groups to articulate the phenomenon from their unique, contemporary angles. The themes and the works are, respectively:

-Plastic Classic, by Pili Wu
-Plastic Ceramics, by Pili Wu

-Mirror Lattice by Tong Ho
-Bamboo Steel Tables by Nendo

-Lace Bowls by Gina Hsu
-Brick Plan by Rock Wang

-Bubble Chair by Kevin Yu-Jui Chou
-Calligraphy Screen by Poching Liao
