Wei-Li YEH

Wei-Li YEH / Born in 1971 in Taipei, now lives and works in Yangmei 

Wei-Li YEH's “Antiquity-like Rubbish Research & Development Syndicate” is an ambitious project of “production”. As a gleaner, YEH created numerous pieces of “art” which adhere to the concept of collective creation via the labor of collecting junks. Through his works, lifestyle and working space, the artist attempts to redefine the meaning of “junks” within the context of contemporary society and to explore the aesthetic potentiality of the subject.
