Artwork Appreciation
Artist CHEN Ching-Yao’s is adept at photographing people dressed in comical costumes, inspiring people to rethink the global issues that lurk in daily life. In Blossoming in the Backyard—Momotaro, the artist and models dress up to reenact the scene in which Momotaro subdues the demons. If you look closely, the two surrendering figures with their hands in the air are dressed as European nobility. Far in the background you can see Taipei 101 and the Shin Kong Mitsukoshi shopping mall. Chen groups global consumer logos in a witty and whimsical way to form a kind of cultural jigsaw puzzle.
