Abstract (English)

Laurence explains Pien’s work through the mythic journey he evokes in two thematically linked exhibitions. She argues that his drawing installations disrupt the body’s boundaries and the socila order, while representing the passage from death to rebirth. Laurence links her theme to the artist’s emigration from Taiwan and the bridging of Eastern and Western culture in his art. Bibl. 1 p. List of works. Biographical notes.
