Future Island -Start Art Fair/ Saatchi Gallery-Gallery10- 14-18th September by Peihang Huang

Future Island captures the forward-thinking and unique identity of the vibrant contemporary art scene in Taiwan.  Each artist investigates notions of identity, environment and the unique position of Taiwan in a contemporary context.  These artists seek to create an independent and striking visual language that communicates their sense of self, and engages with the social and political influences and traditions that have infiltrated their culture.  Whilst Future Island features some already well-established artists from the region, true to START's ethos of "Emerging Artists and New Art Scenes", 

Future Island also highlights talent yet to be discovered from this fresh art scene, allowing savvy collectors the chance to catch these rising stars, as they embark on their rich careers.

Especially commissioned by START art fair as part of their program of Special Projects Future Island will dominate the entire Gallery 10 in the immaculate Saatchi Gallery.  Mehta Bell Projects are delighted to make a return to the art fair with this unique exhibition, alongside Future Island we will be hosting an engaging panel discussion.  Director Wang of the Taiwanese Ministry of Culture will inaugurate the panel discussion which will be lead by Fair director Niru Ratnam. He will engage in a discourse surrounding this exciting art scene, accompanied by artists Peihang Huang and Hsiao-chi Tsai and Jag Mehta, one half of the Mehta Bell Projects curatorial partnership.  This fascinating discussion will give an insight into the artists' practices, the cultural context of this compelling region, and the influences and experiences contemporary Taiwanese artists encounter today.

To suffer is one thing; another thing is living with the photographed images of suffering, which does not necessarily strengthen conscience and the ability to be compassionate.  It can also corrupt them.  Once one has seen such images, one has started down the road of seeing more – and more.  Images transfix.  Images anaesthetize.”

Susan Sontag, ‘On Photography’, 1979

At first glance, Taiwanese painter Peihang Huang’s paintings are enchanting and irresistible, with their swathes of rich oil paint, dynamic brushstrokes and pastel hues.  Upon closer inspection, darker elements surface; an aeroplane fractured in two, the devastation of an earthquake or avalanche, scenes from a refugee camp.  Huang’s practice consists of the multiple aspects of her imagination, her perception of reality through media images and the physical process of painting.  She references familiar and often iconic images from the mass media and weaves these events or incidents into an imagined painterly scene, reflecting the artist’s parallel universe and her re-visioned reality.  Huang filters the images through her own imagination, perhaps as a way of processing the negative aspects of human nature, or to digest life’s harsh realities.  The world she creates hovers between a visionary realm, the unreal, and a fragmented interpretation of the modern world.  The paintings are dream-like, almost hallucinatory, highlighting the beauty and joy of the visual experience, yet the viewer is not able to escape the sinister undertones of the image’s origins.  The overall effect is a dichotomy between a seductive and an apocalyptic representation of the world we inhabit and how we respond to the crises and adversities of life in the 21st century.
