The first 3D art exhibition, staged last year, garnered positive feedback, according to Deputy Minister of Culture Lee Ching-hwi. This year's show included Yilan's Guishan Island (Turtle Island), Taitung's Taiwan International Balloon Festival, Tainan's Salt Mountain, Nantou's Qingjing Farm, Taipei's National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, and Kinmen's Wind Lion Gods, among others (Fengshiye). It attempts to portray traditional Taiwanese culture to people by incorporating the Electric-Techno Neon Gods into the display.
The 6 pieces of artwork, as well as a painted archway at the entry, were co-created by folk artist Chen Ming-shan and the IMAGINATION Art and Design Space, according to curator Tsai. He thanked the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall for putting on the exhibition, which allowed the participating artists to present Taiwanese culture and art in a national art venue.
The exhibition venue will also feature a video by photographer Ed Wu (吳建衡) as well as beautiful lampposts incorporating traditional paper-cutting and modern design.
