Running until September 20 at the Taiwan National Museum of History, Coming Full Circle is the latest exhibition by Chinese artist Peng Wei. Noiz intended to create a space that was sensitive to air, reflecting the impression of the artist’s work. As her art is delicate and sensitive, so too, the design incorporates elements of light, white and bright.
Another key element that noiz has incorporated into the design is the idea of travel. The exhibition space is arranged as a narrative – a single path or experience of moving through time. The first area is a narrow corridor with randomly positioned triangular columns, which represent typical Chinese picturesque landscape and its miniature imitation – a Chinese rock garden signifying the essence of experience in traveling.
The triangular motif is repeated into the main hall as super-long horizontal display tables rotate in random angles. They suggest a surface of wavy water when crossing a river, which is reminiscent of ancient travelers. Lights have been used extensively through the design to create a light and airy experience for viewers.
