Past Artist In Residence
Wei-Wen Fang’s multimedia sculpture installations transform ordinary objects from his surroundings into fanciful indoor landscapes, self-contained and whole. He studied plastic arts at the Tainan Institute for Research in Taiwan, and continues to sculpt with acrylic. His solo exhibition (1999) contained a flexible work called Dream Vessel, constructed of used tires, rubber bands, and monitors showing fuzzy television images at opposite ends. His most recent works evoke the urban jungle with wooden hoops and hanging vines: Wild Village (2004) and Wild Village 2 (2005). Other works render the viewer calm and serene: Garden (2002) and A Day (2001), all show in Taiwan.
