Installation: “Box – Viewpoint ” 2000

Foyer Gallery
Peacock Theatre
Salamanca Arts Centre

The idea of this work is to challenge the definitiveness and the safety of our knowledge.

Viewers are forced to place themselves between boxes – the object and the café room. Through making the object into a small scale of the café, the work questions our position among realities. It creates a dilemma that we cannot define our true viewpoints: whether we are outside the box or inside the box? Further more, can we really know how many boxes are still out there beyond the café room?

As a result, the correctness of our opinions and knowledge are disputed.
