The pulsating particles are scattered in the beautiful air that is unique to the port of the South, and the pores are fully relaxed in the two art districts of the Little Screening, and the desires for the summer are rushing, but I didn’t expect that one of the antidote was actually in front of me – the skylight tree shadow lined up with the “unrelated” sign that was carved into a line symmetry. The two square-like characters seemed to be stable and stable, and the inside was actually a sensory driving force. The bookstore of the phantom drug: in the name of the experiment, the reading of the imagination, the use of books as a bait to seduce the dark desire. Image Courtesy of Wu Guan Books.

In addition to writing, how much do you know about paper? Exploring "The Evolution of Paper" in a century-old paper mill

By
Photography/杨雅淳. All images courtesy of even production. About paper, how much do you know? I was asked by this sentence. For most people, paper is the material that can be seen everywhere in everyday life. From notebooks to toilet paper, even the body will carry it. Our dependence on paper may be beyond our imagination. Curated by uniform production and cursive heading, in the material warehouse of Yilan Zhongxing Cultural and Creative Park, a paper-based exhibition "The Evolution of Paper" connects the relationship between paper and the local history, and also through the imagination of the artist. Paper is full of visual possibilities. "Knowledge of Paper", "The Evolution of Paper." (left) "Yangyang", Tim Budden's work, "The Evolution of Paper." "Knowledge of Paper", "The Evolution of Paper." "Yangyang", Tim Budden's work, "The Evolution of Paper." The scene came to Zhongxing Paper Factory in Yilan. It was once the largest paper-making factory in Taiwan and the number one production in Southeast Asia. The 13-year-old factory was rebuilt by the Yilan County Government, which contributed to the “The Evolution of Paper”. Built in the post-war period, it was the 15th and 16th warehouses for storing slurry. Now it has become a warehouse for multi-functional exhibition space. The artist Liao Zhaohao challenges the perceptive conflict of "heavy and light" with "Breaking Blocks", while Kangya builds "The Shape of the Future", which is to turn paper into a cloud to express his hope for the future; Wang Dingyi uses "light, sprinkles on The labyrinth design of Paper leads the people to discover the knowledge of paper in the lost way, and encounters the paper, material evolution and various future imaginations that carry important moments of human beings, bringing out the interest of knowledge learning.

As a citizen of the South Island, in the midsummer days of burning in the midsummer, a group of hot air that is eagerly warming up and relentlessly takes over and makes people sweat. Dripping, miserable. At this time, look at the ICEHOTEL in the village of Jukkasjärvi (Youkasjarvi) in Sweden, maybe to eliminate your temperament. Yukasjarvi, it may not be a famous big city, and the map will not be your first choice for tourism. But this is a village named after the Sami language in the Nordic, meaning "the gathering place beside the river". It is located on the side of the Torne River, one of the largest rivers in northern Sweden. It has been a trade gathering of nearby mountain groups and river spring residents since ancient times. Ground. Photography/ Asaf Kliger. Photography/ Asaf Kliger. The ICEHOTEL, which was designed from the building to the interior space, was created in 1989 and is located 200 km north of the Swedish Arctic Circle. Every winter, the design and construction team Torne River harvests more than 1,000 tons of ice and natural ice and snow, polished and carved into an original ice-cold restaurant. In particular, these ice and snow buildings will dissolve back into the river every April of the next year. The characteristics and advantages of this "seasonal limitation" also allow ICEHOTEL's design team to create a hotel that is unrestrained every year without any scruples. Photography/ Martin Smedsén.

Spreading the art and signal, talking about food exchange: Hualien Yiwen Salon Tea Bar, Shidong East

By
Photography/ TinLee. Come to the most prosperous business district in Hualien - Ditching Tail, this street is carrying many city scenery and stories; building a shop on the Gully, the more charming the windy night Venues, assorted food stalls, theaters, and pools are changing from time to time. These prosperous streetscapes are no longer the case. Standing on the quiet old street, I occasionally greeted the cat's probe and passed several emerging Wenqing cafes. From the free street to the Fujian Street, one of the houses, one unobtrusive, hidden, hidden There is a miniature art gallery and a tea bar. This is the new base of Hualien Art and Literature. The low-key building has a golden door in front of the door. The owner of the island, Liao Xiubo (Aguang), talks about the house, as if someone finally found the excitement of smallness and smiled and shared the reason. "This space is the old police dormitory in the past, and it exists like a monument. So I put a golden number on the door and made it like a government agency to create a kind of "micro-historic" taste." For the roots, use the space to tell the humanities story, and talk about the initiation of the island's East Translation Institute. "I was born in Panama, but I stayed in Hualien before the fourth grade. This neighborhood is very meaningful to me, except for the place where I grew up, and the place I think is the most Hualien! Three years ago, I moved with my family. Back to Hualien, I saw that everything in the past has changed. Those in the ditch have been demolished, the riverbed has been covered up... It can’t be connected with the memory, and the brain is blank.” After returning to Hualien, Aguang applied for art subsidy. I chose to make graffiti creations in this neighborhood. I painted a total of five walls in front and back. "I always think that the conditions of Hualien are very good. I feel that there are more and more expressionful and independent stores here. We started to start a business plan.” The concept of “collecting, eating, and brainstorming” is used to classify the space. The first is the island’s collection department. Many collections of collections and current art exhibitions are gathered here. Through the display of interpretation space, the elements of different cultures, such as Central and South American elements, Taiwanese folk art, Middle Ages objects, and Japanese artifacts, are attempted to merge "multipleness" into an independent style. Tracing back to the roots, in ancient times, people's collection behaviors were often satisfied with the physiological needs; while the generations changed, the human collection behavior gradually changed, and began to use the ability to collect, penetrate into every field of life, and cultivate a collection. Appreciate and create a unique aesthetic of life. Aguang also borrows scenery from nature and brings it into the trajectory of life. The living green plants and leaves are contrasted with vivid animals and insect specimens. The space is filled with tangible and intangible old and new conflicts, so that the senses experience is quietly formed. A common language. Island East Translation Institute - the east side of the island, a broad concept; the translation office, is a military unit, receiving Moss cryptographic messages, an abstract symbolic language. I hope that through this unit, I will transform the artistic and artistic information that I thought of as abstract and distance in the past into a context that is easy to understand and understand. Laughing that he is the director, Aguang interprets the name of the store. A new exhibition held regularly every month, talking about the cooperation with art creators, Aguang believes that "through the exhibitions of different artists, it is a very interesting way of operation to match the selections and works of art. Art galleries, people usually feel that there is a sense of distance. Although the empty space can emphasize the work itself, I want to emphasize the relationship between the work and the environment.” Let the works of art play the leading role, and then change the surrounding mix and arrangement. To create a perfectly coordinated visual image, so that visitors can pay attention to the paintings due to the ingenuity of the furnishings, or be attracted by the paintings, and then discover the surrounding objects. Complement each other, let art blend in with everyday life, and simulate the possibility of numerous home furnishings for the paintings on display, so that people can be more relaxed in the process of interpreting art and improving the aesthetics of life. "Aminoacid Boy And The Chaos Orde" by Diego Lazzarin "AZAZEL" by Diego Lazzarin "In this small space, the future will continue to be carried out and stacked through various types of art activities." Ah Guang, not only serves as a curatorial event, but also acts as an artist brand. Diego Lazzarin, a fantasy artist from Italy, can see his book Aminoacid Boy And The Chaos Orde and the figurine; Diego Lazzarin presents the spiritual garden and mysterious species in his heart through painting and engraving. For example, the self-presenting corner of the showcase is a strange yellow creature - AZAZEL, 20 cm tall, likes to live on the river, the main occupation is to prey on the water creatures, have a beautiful voice, and love to sing their favorite songs loudly. Turning on Aminoacid Boy And The Chaos Orde, the observations of the Earth by the aliens of Diego Lazzarin are narrative backgrounds, interpreting human behavior through the perspective of aliens, and gaining a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of the earth and human beings. The 160-page full of destructive disorganized content, full of fantasy narrative techniques and strong color style, is a classic reading that is worthy of the universe's exploration and love of hunting style, collection and recollection.

Freeing the life from the illegal spirit on the wall: From Paris to New Delhi, the first graffiti artist C215 in India

By

Before I knew C215, I thought that graffiti is a kind of damage to the urban beauty. After I knew C215, I started to search for graffiti that might be left on the trash can, brick wall, and lift door on the way to and from work. Imagine the graffiti brain. The rebellion in the middle, the cry of social injustice, every thick line and the point of fainting, is like the exclamation point of the loudest volume. C215 is called Christian Guemy. Just like TAKI 183, JULIO 204, FRANK 207, these famous graffiti take the pseudonym of the street number. Among them, TAKI183 is the first graffiti artist. Christian Guemy thinks the number is like a prisoner number, symbolizing graffiti. The illegal spirit of art and rebellion. For him, life is sometimes like a prison, we are just a nameless pawn. In the face of such illegal artistic behavior, why did C215 choose to disclose its real name? "When you paint on a train, public building or a blank wall, you will certainly want to protect yourself. But for me, I try to paint beautiful things. These art can be understood. I don't think I The process of creation is very savage. On the contrary, it reflects the good life in the local area.” He likes to paint in each city. The favorite city is “the next city”, from lifestyle, cultural uniqueness, architecture and even law. In the city in his eyes, through the "experimental creation" graffiti on the wall, and thus get the experience of new things, spending a lot of airfare and travel graffiti is very worthwhile for the C215. Wandering on the edge of contemporary art may be more conservative. From the 1990s when Indian contemporary art emerged in the world market, no artist chose to create on the wall until C215 came from Paris and became the first in India. Created by graffiti artists. Like the early death of the Indian female painter Amrita Sher-Gil, the $1.5 million high-priced "Village" and the $1.36 million deal with Francis Newton Souza's "Men and Women" are full of Indian culture; C215's graffiti art Every pair of eyes, some from the market hawkers, some passing girls, even the local goats and cats become his material; his art is "unexpected art", everyone can touch, also India The beauty of New Delhi is pushed to the world by the eyes of photographers and the pens of writers. Unlike the twisted words in New York, canned paints have been available everywhere since the early 1970s, and New York’s brick walls from the subway cars to the platforms and toilets are filled with the vivid colors painted by graffiti; these are Painting the site is also a rebellion. Nowadays, with the development of graffiti art, the simple twisting of text has more effects such as 3D and bubbles. Even with some paintings, it is still mainly text. The C215 from France is dominated by "characters". There is no violent factor. It is only from the eyes of the people in the painting, those uneasiness, loneliness, defense or innocence. This is the way he uses to write humanities; He began to extensively explore language, art history and history, so he could portray the expression of the characters so deeply. ...

Is the auction of the dilapidated doorplate asking for $1,000? From Bob Dylan to Andy Warhol, count the Hall of Fame in Chelsea Hotel, New York

By
New York auction house Guernsey's recently announced that it will auction more than 50 door panels at the Chelsea Hotel at 222 West 23rd Street, Manhattan, New York in mid-April. The starting price is $1,000 and $5,000 - why can a hotel's salvage board be sold? To such a high price? If you tell the front owners of the door panels are Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol, Madonna... and they have been touched, trusted, or even kissed by countless artists, are you willing to increase the price? The legend about Chelsea Hotel goes far beyond this. Not only the door, but also every room, walkway, and wall, is full of names in the literary and chronicles. It is also because of these famous guests, broken doors. Can be worth a thousand dollars. In the 1960s, artists, directors, writers, and designers gathered in this utopian small world to enjoy their talents. Bob Dylan fell in love with the supermodel Sara Lowndes and wrote a love story for her; Andy Warhol filmed the experimental film "Chelsea Girls", in his eyes, here is the dreamland drawn from reality; and stepping through the boundaries of heaven, Like falling into hell, the crazy poet Dylan Thomas shook the whiskey in the glass and shouted "I refreshed the record" and went to another world... Chelsea Hotel, a gathering place for creation and destruction, love and hate . Whether it is "heaven" or "hell", maybe only between turning. Entering New York City's Art "Eden" Built in 1883, the Chelsea Hotel has 12 floors, the tallest building in New York City at the time, and a rooftop garden on the top floor; at first it was used as an apartment building, while the top floor was rented out The artist works as a studio. It was not until 1905 that due to the high cost and difficult cooperation, it was forced to change into an apartment-style hotel, which in turn allowed more visitors to and from New York to stay here.

Bordeaux Walking | Art Revolution in the Abandoned Barracks, Darwin Art Settlement

By
Photography/ Cinny. Part of images courtesy of Darwin Éco-système. Bordeaux, a large city in the southwest of France, is cut by the Garonne, which flows through it. The classical buildings on the left bank are built in the 18th century, graceful and elegant. The city's cityscape makes the city an alias for "Little Paris" and the center of municipality, economy and culture in the last three centuries. However, looking at the BASTIDE area on the right bank of the Garonne, there are distinct urban landscapes. Rebar and cement can be seen everywhere. It is the cradle of the new construction of the local government in the past ten years. Compared with the high housing prices in the old city, this area is like a place of birth, and has become the foothold of art and entrepreneurs in recent years. Photography/ Cinny. Photography/ Cinny. Among them, the Darwin Éco-système, which is transformed into an elegant attitude, is the most fashionable cultural settlement in Bordeaux, and it has a working environment suitable for creators in various fields. The energy-sufficient, environmentally friendly and avant-garde complex space atmosphere attracts many street artists and athletes to station, giving this old but youthful building a new look. Before the metamorphosis, the historical story of the abandoned military camp was built in 1850. Darwin settled in the two existing old buildings, which were originally military supplies stores. After the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, the government rebuilt it as "La Caserne Niel"; in the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Neil Barracks were home to many soldiers at the time, for half a century. Therefore, it is also known as "Quartier Niel". During the Second World War, it was also the place where the German army placed Spanish prisoners, with the aim of building a large number of submarines for war. Image Courtesy of Darwin Éco-système. Image Courtesy of Darwin Éco-système. In 2005, after the French army was evacuated, it became a showcase for graffiti and street art; in the mottled broken wall, these young creators picked up the paintbrush. Let the old military camp, which was originally ridiculously ridiculous, add a rare and lively look with the artistic vitality. However, due to years of idleness, it has also faced the fate of being demolished. Reluctant to see the destruction of this rare cultural community, the two young French entrepreneurs and freelancers decided to take over the abandoned military camp and develop a team called "Equipe Evolution" with the local community, hoping to flip the power of the people. The old abandoned space is used to create a city place suitable for symbiosis and sharing. Photography/ Cinny. Photography/ David Manaud. Image Courtesy of Darwin Éco-système. Photography/ Cinny....

Secret Flower House in the 16th Century Convent: Milan Composite Gallery Bar SIX GALLERY

By
Photography/ Alberto Strada. All images courtesy of SIX GALLERY unless stated otherwise. Like a model on a fashion runway – beautiful, avant-garde, but cold and unrealistic, Milan is on an equal footing with New York, London and Paris in the fashion industry. As with the pride of the sky, it has everything, and it looks like a dazzling eye, leading the world, but if you look back at different endpoints, you will be alienated and confused. This is a prosperous place with a thousand-year history. It was also the place where the plague, plague and carpet bombings were carried out during the 15th and 17th centuries and during World War II. As a flower that is jointly fed by destruction and glory, Milan interweaves an extreme collision, gathering history, humanities, ethnicity, religion, art, philosophy, and combining it into a difficult language—沧雅晦, 泠凝哲美, cum The tip of the era, the stagnation of the stagnation.

Since the 1st century AD became the capital of the Roman Empire, Milan has been a populous economic and cultural hub in the history of Europe, and in the Renaissance it was the House of Sforza; Leonardo da Vinci and Donato. Donato Bramante has been honoured here with outstanding works. Then, because of the political alliance between the Sforzal family and the Medici family, Milan's architectural style was also greatly affected by Filippo. The influence of Filippo Brunelleschi. It was not until the Milan decree issued in 313 that the Christianity was finally legalized. Since then, many magnificent churches and monasteries have been built in Milan, including the place where Da Vinci’s famous painting “The Last Supper” is located. (Santa Maria delle Grazie).

Based on paper culture, the unknown and future of catalytic fiber: the experimental paper shop of the Tree Fire Paper Museum, "Fengjia Catalyst Room FENKO"

By

Stealing on Chang'an Road in Taipei, the 23-year-old Tree Fire Memorial Paper Museum focuses on the birth of the "Fengjia Catalyst Room FENKO" in the spirit of experimental innovation. Feng Jiao is actually the other half of the tree fire. It is adjacent to the Tree Fire Paper Museum and is only 3 steps away from the Fengjiao Catalysis Room. Originally the paper factory's Fengjiao catalytic chamber space, in addition to retaining the original knowledge of paper materials, it is the first catalytic platform in Taiwan with paper and natural materials as the main axis. Some people may want to ask: "Why do you have to challenge yourself and establish a brand new brand?" The answer is that the team found that paper still has a lot of development, but there are not many people who know it. Therefore, through FENKO to create a platform for paper and natural material communication and experimentation, deconstruct the public's past imagination of natural materials, contact with more creative ideas, and even in the cross-border cooperation with creative people, a new concept. From paper labs to natural material catalytic chambers, from paper exploration to moss and iron cross-border catalysis, paper and natural materials experiments, curation and space leasing are the core of FENKO in the future. Space design is based on this function, catalysis Developed three spaces: catalytic chamber, moss chamber and hidden chamber. Rough and bare red brick walls reflect the delicate and delicate "Frame de Frame" (FdF), which is like a new wave of fireworks. Under the concept of "relics", the new generation of architects Hong Haozhen, with the concept of "relics", left the red brick wall that was originally buried under the wood decoration, and reflected it in the light, showing the history of the past hidden in the core of the building for more than 30 years. In the past, he worked for three years in the studio of the British ghost architect Thomas Heatherwick. He was influenced by Hezevik and the architectural poet Peter Zumthor, and the galvanized metal steel that was almost melted into the space by lightness The frame, such as the rainbow color, has a faint change with different angles, showing the materials and crafts that Fengjiao pays attention to, creating a moving atmosphere. Cross-border experiments on paper, extending from the plane to the space FENKO will continue to explore the unknown, retain professional consultation on art paper, handmade paper, repair paper, and provide "customized paper making services" and various cross-border experiments. Like the past tree fire at the Venice Biennale in 2017, the "unexpected beauty" with the artist Li Mingwei, will be 4,000 pieces of envelopes and stationery materials bearing the beauty of the experience, as well as Yunmen "Crazy Grass" dance up to 7 meters long, 1.3 ...

Use the soul of art and art to guard the outline of the old building: the modern transformation of old churches, factories and hospitals, and the artistic space of 8 European old bottles and new wines.

Among various types of construction projects, building renovation projects always give us the most curiosity. There are more and more such transformation projects around the world, such as the Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art, which was originally transformed from the Nanshi Power Plant. Among them, art space is one of the most common types of old building renovation, and it is usually the most anticipated, because the art exhibition has very high requirements on space - light, fluidity and variability, all of which are indispensable. From the former slaughterhouse to the ice rink, the following eight European old buildings have been transformed into artistic spaces; in addition to the forward-looking design concept, the most valuable thing is the architect’s height of the original architecture and history. Respect and carefully protect the soul of the building. KÖNIG GALERIE|Berlin, Germany|Predecessor: Church KÖNIG GALERIE is hidden in a small street in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin and was converted from a church. The church was built in 1967 and is a representative of the Fauvism style. In 2011, it was purchased by Berlin's famous gallery and art dealer Johann König, and local architect Arno Brandlhuber was invited to remodel this behemoth without windows and concrete structures. The modified KÖNIG GALERIE has a rough and original appearance, but the inner space is very calm and soft; the light penetrates slowly from the skylights and the wall gap, making it ideal for displaying artworks. ?Alexandrinenstraße 118, 10969 Berlin, Germany ARQUIPELAGO|São Miguel Island, Portugal | Predecessor: Factory Located on the island of Ia de S.
