the " Reference Books " WORKSHOP

文學生活設計工作營 十一月十六日- 十一月十七日
時間:2012/11/16~17 地點:南海藝廊2F

透過創意人眼中的工具書,分享創意實踐的種種過程

創意若源自生活中的大小體悟,
創意人就總是能有一套自己的觀察,
將生活材料重新排列組合,精準說穿眾人心事,
不但引發新的騷動與詮釋,更促成跨領域之間的對話,
而實踐創意的重要性,更在不斷的分享改變現狀的想望,
想望透過不斷的分享,點滴匯聚成具體可行的力量。

「工具書」的工作營暨展覽, 將於南海藝廊創作、展出。藉由2天工作營的探討、發想,由設計、美食廚藝、插畫藝術、互動科技等各領域講師們,帶領學員從認識自己出發、 反思與詮釋街區內,對於工具書的願景與期待,轉化成為不同形式的呈現,並且透過實際動手做得過程,體現自己的想像。

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idea of "Round-and-full-ness", so powerful as it has been regarded the ideal way of life for the Chinese, however, is outdated because it is associated with the values of the past generations.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

VALUES / ATTITUDES
-Plastic Classic, by Pili Wu
-Plastic Ceramics, by Pili Wu

MEMORY / TECHNIQUE
-Mirror Lattice by Tong Ho
-Bamboo Steel Tables by Nendo

SENSIBILITY / DIVERSITY
-Lace Bowls by Gina Hsu
-Brick Plan by Rock Wang

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

Salone del Mobile Milan: Yii Designers for HAN Gallery

Apr 17~22, 2012
Via Ventura 6, Milan, Italy

Building on Yii’s success in cultivating traditional craft in the contemporary design context, the designers behind the project have moved to an entrepreneurial platform to carry on their research. This new venture explores an even wider scope of the exciting possibilities that lie in the culturally rich Chinese traditions.

The vessel for this new mission is HAN Gallery. (www.han-gallery.com) Yii Designers for HAN Gallery. This April at Ventura Lambrate, HAN Gallery will exhibit its new collection, which will be simultaneously displayed at Design museum Helsinki. In addition to its new collection, special pieces will be on view crafted exclusively for the Salone.

The select group of designers will present newly explored cultural contents, along with past concepts that continue to be developed. Expanding upon the direction of Yii, past prototypes have been redeveloped and are finally available as commercial products. HAN Gallery focuses on and delivers both production pieces and exclusive art works.

Participating Designers:
Gina Hsu, Kevin Yu Jui Chou, NENDO, Pili Wu, Po-ching Liao, Rock Wang, Tong Ho

Creative director:
Gijs Bakker
