One Elephant walking towards Another Exhibition

One Elephant walking towards Another Exhibition - Coming Soon in UAE

Volery Gallery presents One Elephant Walking towards another. The solo exhibition by Taiwanese artist Chen Wei Ting will be on view between November 10–December 6, 2022.

Chen Wei Ting works primarily with paintings created using acrylic and oil pastel, while his practice encompasses various media, including sculpture, video and performance art. The works are often accompanied by poems that offer a narrative to the visual artworks. His work demonstrates the differences between children and adults, using memories and symbolic figures from his childhood that he spent the majority of with children’s books and cartoons, from which he gained his interest in drawing caricatural characters. At Fu Jen University, Chen majored in Chinese Literature, which allowed him to explore the fluidity of creativity, and writing poems became an inseparable part of his practice.

 

This solo exhibition is about change, featuring twelve paintings of characters existing mostly in the starkness of the night. The works are lit by strokes of bright yellows, reds and greens, accompanied by a poem of freedom.

The exhibition’s title is derived from First Person (2016), a book-length photo poem by Hsia Yu, “Elephants on the earth’s surface walk toward other elephants on the earth’s surface”. You cannot know who this elephant is, where he is going, or what he is looking for. Just as Chen Wei Ting does not plan to be explicit, he leaves the clues in the four poems accompanying his solo exhibition at Volery Gallery, Dubai.
