    What is contemporary? How to define ink art? Each person has different answers to these questions. This exhibition is an attempt to present the cotemporary facets of ink art through the most inclusive and open-minded observation as possible, transcending all literal definitions of contemporariness or ink art. Drawing references from the concept of “mandala”, this exhibition is composed of four themes: “Form” (material), “Meaning” (spirituality), “Void” (contrast between void and solid) and “Space” (spatial structure). They are the four quadrants in the mandala of this exhibition to have a systematic review of the development of contemporary ink art in this new century. The theme at the center of the mandala is Chi, which means “energy of the universe”. In the exhibition, it provides an experimental territory representing the subjective spirit of new-generation artists and the perspectives of ink art in southern Taiwan. By asking questions not asked before and serving as an interdisciplinary and multimedia platform, this exhibition aspires to discover another round of paradigm-shifting possibilities for the future of ink art.
