This first illustrated book in English about the work of Yeh Shih-Chiang, one of Taiwan’s most reclusive and enigmatic artists, is groundbreaking, timely, and pioneering.
This remarkable volume presents the extraordinary life and work of one of Taiwan’s most reclusive artists, Yeh Shih-Chiang, as curated by renowned curator Chang Tsong-Zung (Johnson Chang), and reimagined by Taiwan-US artist Yeh Wei-Li.
Constellations reflects a deep affinity between two artists who never met, but whose journeys intersect. Yeh Wei-Li has been reimagining and re-creating the life and living spaces of Yeh Shih-Chiang since 2015—archiving and restoring his printed matter, artworks, and inanimate objects; curating and designing exhibition and architectural structures; and re-creating the actual physical spaces in which he worked. This book reflects that journey, featuring more than 120 color plates. It also contains texts from leading international and regional art critics and scholars, including a defining introductory essay by Chang Tsong-Zung, and textual contributions from Corinne Diserens, Cheng Tsun-Shing, Boris Groys, and Tseng Shao-Chien.
