"This safari is conducted by the most humble means: we imagine buses, rickshaws, endless pathways sandal-footed. This leads her to write poetry that comes together in shreds of words and phrases that straggle down the page like stumbling, dedicated pilgrims to meaning. She adds photographs, black and white images that seem to reveal the intimate life of the countries she visits" (David W. Seaman)

Di seguito alcune parole del Sindaco di Osnago, Paolo Brivio e dell'Assessore alla Cultura, Maria Grazia Caglio: «La guerra e la violenza dilagano. E ci piombano addosso all'improvviso. Ogni giorno veniamo a sapere di guerre e atti di terrorismo, di una nuova orribile strage di innocenti, di ospedali e scuole bombardati, di torture disumane e di sistematiche violazioni dei più elementari diritti umani. Parallelamente, la terra subisce continue, silenziose aggressioni. Apparentemente inarrestabili […] Non possiamo rimanere immobili. E ci si muove, e ci si batte, anche e soprattutto con le armi dello spirito».
Questo l'invito lanciato e colto dagli artisti e dalle loro opere che potrete ammirare sui muri della città di Osnago, per le vie, le Piazze e, infine, scolpito sul corpo dei performer fino al 10 di luglio 2016. Si tratta dunque di una nuova occasione offerta dalla città e dagli organizzatori della Voce del Corpo da cui trarre profonde e urgenti riflessioni di carattere morale ed etico.

From La Biennale di Venezia to MACRO. International Perspectives | Yahon Chang. THE QUESTION OF BEINGS
Newsletter giugno. 2016
PDG Arte Communications is pleased to announce the second phase of the project "From La Biennale di Venezia to MACRO. International Perspectives" curated by Paolo De Grandis and Claudio Crescentini which will present the participation of the Taiwanese artist Yahon Chang with the exhibition "The Question of Beings" at MACRO Testaccio – La Pelanda. Promoted by Roma Capitale - Superintendent Capitolina of Cultural Heritage and organized in collaboration with PDG Arte Communications, the project converge the art "prospects" of two cities working to help the experience of international art travel throughout the country. From precisely, Venice to the Capital. Two cities that are linked by historical and immense artistic traditions, which have been able to further enrich this heritage so as to give voice and life to contemporary art and to discover and emphasize this resource by documenting existing assets and promoting both initiatives and international connections. The research was initiated by Paolo De Grandis in 1995 with the creation of outdoor pavilions at La Biennale di Venezia and the presentation of new countries. We celebrate 112 exhibitions organized by PDG Arte Communications within the Venice Biennale, an important result which testimonies a 30 year effort that ames to call the international focus from the Venice Biennale to the MACRO of Rome, with new artistic realities which otherwise will remain limited to the context of their geographic provenience.

MACRO Testaccio – La Pelanda
Teatro Studio Uno, Piazza Orazio Giustiniani 4, Roma
From La Biennale di Venezia to MACRO. International Perspectives is a new exhibition project conceived and curated by Paolo De Grandis and Claudio Crescentini. The project is devoted to the presentation of three selected international exhibitions from La Biennale di Venezia - International Art Exhibition at MACRO's spaces, as site-specific, reconstructed, and remodelled artworks.
Promoted by Roma Capitale – Superintendent Capitolina of Cultural Heritage and organised in collaboration with PDG Arte Communications, the project seeks to converge the art prospects of two cities that are working together to circulate the experience of international art throughout the country. Venice and the Capital, two cities that are linked by immense historical and artistic traditions, have been able to further enrich their heritage so as to give voice and life to contemporary art. Moreover, they are also discovering and emphasising this cultural resource by documenting existing assets and promoting both initiatives and international connections. The research for this project was initiated in 1995 by Paolo De Grandis, whose efforts helped introduce new countries to La Biennale di Venezia and prompted the establishment of additional outdoor pavilions. Therefore, the works will follow a path of innovation and travel from one city to the next, from one space to the other, enriching themselves with meanings and nurturing a new audience. All the while, the works will be evolving in a new context, specifically created for MACRO by the various international artists who were invited to participate.
From La Biennale di Venezia to MACRO. International Perspectives reaches its second stage with Yahon Chang @ Roma, The Question of Beings, curated by J. J. Shih and Francise Chang. First organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei for the La Biennale di Venezia, this summer at MACRO it is presented in collaboration with Contemporary Art Foundation and MDCA Foundation.
On site at MACRO Testaccio - La Pelanda space with ceiling height measures at 12 meters tall, Yahon Chang will re-create the conceptual exploration of his site-specific ink painting installations, which were exhibited at The 56th International Art Exhibition at the MOCA Taipei Pavilion for the Collateral Events of la Biennale di Venezia. Chang's new works, to be exhibited at La Pelanda, will correspond with the conceptual framework suggested by its past title The Question of Beings. Furthermore, Chang will also create new works that resonate with the historical site of La Pelanda, an ex-slaughter house. Additionally, there will be three large-scale iron sculptures shipped especially from the OPEN (2015) exhibition in Venice, which will be presented along with the "ink painting" installation. The form of Chang's sculpture stems from his ink brushstrokes, together, the ink paintings and the sculptures express the transformation and representation on how a two dimensional plane transforms into a three dimensional form, and finally to the concept of a space.
Yahon Chang In Action, 2015. Ink Painting during the International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia
In last year's Collateral Event at the 56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia, Yahon Chang investigated the theme of "The Question of Beings" at the Istituto Santa Maria Della Pietà, where he created a site-specific exhibition featuring a series of new ink on paper paintings and mixed media installations that explored the conscious and subconscious natures of individuals. With this site-specific ink painting installation that filled the entirety of the exhibition space — windows, doors, ceiling, walls and floor, Chang questioned the diversity and complexity of living beings in an effort to delve into the likenesses and differences between the recesses of human and animal instinct. Chang also reflected upon his life experiences by painting meditative portraitures that resonated with his feelings of rejection, struggle, acceptance and love he had experienced in this world. These portraits of sentient beings, while offering a variety of subject matter, presented cohesion through the singularity of their compositional style. Implying a spiritual connection to the Santa Maria della Pietà church that was situated in front of the exhibition site of Istituto Santa Maria della Pietà, the paintings evoked a feeling of commemorating the past, present, and future, while simultaneously encompassing all the world's greatness and mediocrity, achievements and failures.
In the past few years Chang has exhibited at different venues, often creating site-specific works for them. As the scale of his exhibition expands, the challenges he must face also become greater. Since The 56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia, Chang has started to create more large-scale, site-specific works for each exhibition in effort to resonate with the space, to connect with its historical setting, and to have more interaction and conversation with the viewers. As he ages he faces more challenges when creating site-specific works for exhibitions. This exhibition at MACRO Testaccio - La Pelanda presents him with new levels of challenges, both physically and mentally. He will create works on site for a period of 5 days, producing a body of ink on canvas painting. Each canvas will measure between 10 to 20 meters long and they will drape down from the ceiling in varying length, allowing the viewers to meander through a labyrinth of ink paintings that confront them with a multitude of countenances. These drapes of long linen canvas echo with the traditional Chinese landscape painting and evoke the likeness of cascading waterfalls. Yet, the fluidity of his brushstrokes portrays the different countenances of sentient beings in a both abstract and expressive manner, which brings to mind the metaphor of the stream of life. The multiplicity of faces will fill the centre of the exhibition space, long linen canvas will drape to the floor, creating an interactive environment that will allow the audience to enter a world akin to an "alternative Facebook." This interactive environment will invite the viewer to contemplate the nature of sentient beings, while questioning the meaning of their own identity and the meaning of life.
The site for MACRO Testaccio – La Pelanda was once a slaughterhouse that has been transformed into a contemporary art museum space that it is now. Yahon Chang's paintings will serve as a commemoration of the past and also propose questions concerning the meaning of life. He will paint on site to create an ink painting installation for the La Pelanda space that corresponds to the horrors and impermanence of life at the slaughterhouse. His work will also lament the holocaust and wars from the last century, bringing one to recall the painful process of human civilisation, and eminent these pain into an artistic expressions. Amongst the ink painting installation, Chang will install rust treated iron sculptures, the rust will represent its humble nature, serving as a reminder that all will decay and return to nature. It is precisely for this eroding nature that Chang chose to create his sculpture in this manner to emphasis on the transient ephemerality of life.
Rome was not built in one day, nor was Yahon Chang's artistic career established in a short period of time. Contrarily, he achieved his dream of becoming an artist by persevering through times of trial and hardship. "All roads lead to Rome" is a saying that befits Yahon Chang, for no matter what initial career path he took, it always led him back to art in the end. His experiences in business as well as in personal life have enriched his art with stories and emotions, all of which are reflected in his art. Wielding his powerful brush, he pours his diverse artistic expressions into his painting. This exhibition at MACRO Testaccio – La Pelanda will showcase yet another formidable manifestation of his will to express and to surpass the challenges he faces as a contemporary Chinese ink painter.
