We're not gonna talk about food today,
Instead, I'll show you an awesome exhibition by Tim Yip,
(Currently showing in Taipei till August 8th)
Tim Yip? Unfamiliar with the name?
Let me just present you this artist's brief introduction from MOCA Taipei's website:
"Tim Yip’s rise to worldwide fame began after obtaining the Academy Award for Best Art Direction for the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in 2001.
His multidisciplinary works maintain consistent aesthetics while exploring fields such as film, theater, television, costume design, space design, photography, painting, and literature.
Hsin-chiang Kao, former editor-in-chief of the China Times literary supplement section, once referred Tim Yip as “a name difficult to be labeled.” The artist’s cross-media, cross-domain, and cross-cultural experiences have made him one of the most prominent Chinese art designers."
Since most of you won't be able to present at the exhibition,
I'll show you some of the pictures during my visit.
Exhibition ticket -
There's a "trick" with the ticket, I'll tell you about it in a little bit.
Once again, I'll use the description from MOCA Taipei regarding this special exhibition,
It's definitely better and more understandable than my poor English expression:
"In this exhibition, Tim Yip integrates local elements and images within his works. He captures Taipei at different hours of the day, serving as the background of Lili’s photographs and videos.
It is the artist’s intention that through his design of Summer Holiday, the audience can participate in Lili’s story and at the same time draft their very own stories in the city."Hall way -

Remember the ticket I was telling you about? Voila! -
It's actually a detachable magnet,
The kind you can stick on the fridge, pretty creative huh?
MOCA Taipei always has creative tickets,
Once I got a ticket shaped like sun glasses!
There're more and more places like MOCA Taipei in Taiwan,
Hopefully this trend will go on, making Taiwan a place with creative energies!
