Dates | 3 Aug – 28 Aug, 2021

Chi-Wen Gallery presents Yang Jie-Huai’s solo exhibition “I’m not capable of love” in August 2021. The exhibition title is derived from the artist’s work “How to explain love to an iPhone”, which addresses the dialectics between humans and machines and details the modern-day loss of emotion.
The exhibition explores the subject displacement between human and technological mediums in the information age and the methods used to transmit or receive emotion in the digital world as the boundaries between virtual and real life become blurred. The artist uses objects, installation and other media as means of inviting views to revive the perception of time and space.
Yang Jie-Huai (b.1992, Taichung) currently lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan. Drawing from his personal emotions and the absurdities of daily life, Yang uses sculptures, videos, kinetic installations and writing to comment on the information society.
Due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19, all participants must take necessary sanitary precautions. Please wear masks, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers and have your body temperature taken at the entrance. We reserve the right to refuse those who have a body temperature over 37.5℃. Your kind cooperation will be highly appreciated.
This exhibition is supported by National Culture and Arts Foundation and Taipei Department of Cultural Affairs.
