taipei: another beautiful day

artist pei-shih tu's show another beautiful day opens at the taipei fine arts museum on sat - mar 21. the artist mainly works with frame-by-frame animations and collages and this exhibition features four single-channel projection stop-motion animations celebrating the arrival of the wonderful new age of utopia and fantasy: uneasy journey and another beautiful day are based on the innocent, imaginative and happy world usually represented in typical animation. however, the happy scenes gradually appear to lose control and descend into absurdity, revealing the dark side of humanity, which serves as a metaphor for anxiety about catastrophes caused by war and globalisation. location: 181 zhongshan north road [zhongshan]. © pei-shih tu / who cares about the real animation still [2008]
