Emerita Baik contemplates form, abstraction and language in her exhibition 꿈 / ɯnʞʞ. Taking objects from her family home such as photographs, prayer cards and furniture as starting points, the artist has reworked their forms into playfully stacked structures or skeletons.

Soft Spot is a solo exhibition by Lucy Meyle driven by a sculptural exploration of types of containers and coverings, from those we interact with in everyday life to the more historic, fetishised or unusual. Looking at materials like slipcovers, crusts, shoes, and various kinds of ‘shells’, the artist considers how these can be interfered with in unexpected or humorous ways.

The crab and the rock: landing at the resort is the second part of a project by Deanna Dowling that extends her ongoing research into the architectural design and lifespans of domestic dwellings. Pairing moving image works with architectural interventions, the exhibition is a further development of a solo exhibition, The crab and the rock〈螃蟹與岩石〉commissioned by Enjoy and presented at Taipei Contemporary Art Center earlier this year. Taking this as a starting point, the installation speculates further on architectural relations as well as the recontextualisation of documentation and other materials within a different setting.
