LAI Chih-Sheng’s latest solo exhibition “Between Dog and Wolf”, features approximately 10 new works ranging from paintings, sculptures, videos to installations. The exhibition title is drawn from the French saying that refers to the specific time just before dawn or dusk when everything is shrouded by dim light. Looking at an approaching silhouette, one is uncertain if it is a dog or wolf, friend or foe. With this as his theme, Lai Chih-Sheng proposes different approaches to look at ordinary things, captures memorable moments in daily living, and imagines the no longer imagined.
LAI Chih-Sheng’s work is not based on artistic technique but conceptual practice that imparts his audience a familiar yet new experience that is both immediate and poetic. Born in 1971 in Taipei, LAI’s recent solo exhibitions include “An Exception to Reality—LAI Chih-Sheng” (ESLITE GALLERY, Taipei, 2011), “Instant” (IT Park Gallery, Taipei, 2013). In 2012, his work Life-Size Drawing was invited to participate in “Invisible: Art of the Unseen 1957-2012” (Hayward Gallery, London, 2013).
