Lame Syndrome
by Taipei Fine Arts Museum
Location: Taipei Fine Arts Museum
Artist(s): LIAO Yu An
Date: 25 Jun - 7 Aug 2011

Liao Yu-an’s artwork emits an urban atmosphere. He has said that he grew up in an urban area filled with a great amount of noise, confusion and diversity. Because of these stressful and anxious experiences in his youth, Liao wishes to capture moments when urbanites have withdrawn from busy crowds, depicting private activities and states of mind. Perhaps these activities and imaginings are irrational, unrealistic or unnameable states of alienation and perfunctory indifference, but the artist intends to use them and his manner of presentation to arouse resonant responses in his audience.
The exhibition theme of Lame Syndrome is extended from Liao Yu-an's past artwork, yet also explores web-surfing, high-tech products and the media, all of which flood the lives of today's e-generation and contribute to feelings of inner emptiness. Liao Yu-an represents this phenomenon with images of deformed, weak or rigid bodies, as well as creates different psychological portrayals, and installs humorous objects in the exhibition space, all of which is intended for the audience to identify with for the purpose of amusement and self ridicule.
