Spike the Fish Tales

國外駐村藝術家 / 日本 / 跨領域當代藝術
Mikio Saito 齊藤幹男



During the five weeks Mikio Saito was resident at Soulangh Cultural Park, he attempts to form many-layered art works with mixture of everything he encountered.

“I was very fascinated by many daily incidents, which are thought to be in natural and nothing special; such as nature, food, cloth and many small things. Before it will become routine with me, I wanted to explore their brilliant ideas and turn them into a collage of memoir in a playful way.”

This is his first solo show in Taiwan. The exhibition consists of video, sculptures, collage of printed images, costumes and installation specifically created for A13 gallery.
