From 2014 to 2022, Taiwanese artist Yan PengChun has collected a large number of landscapes with surreal symbols through photography, and each of these seemingly ordinary images has an incomprehensible ambiguity.
Yan PengChun collects these images, compiles them into big cosmic phenomena in small daily life, uses everyday symbols to correspond the information of time and space, and conducts philosophical reflections on daily things. Then, in the form of photography, these graphic symbols with surreal elements are displayed in the exhibition, interpreting personal reflections on the infinite universe and all things in daily life.
