Lin Lung-Chieh
The structure and composition of natural objects has always been a sight that fascinates the artist Lin Lung-Chieh. He pays attention to the structure and composition of natural objects and rebirth. He shapes ceramic into organisms that resemble mechanical forms. He uses his own experience as inspiration to transform the subtleties of life into man-made objects.Faced with the intervention and flow of information from the current generation of electronic media, the artist believes that people have long been silently being transformed into an unknown future. To this end, he extracted the plural growth patterns of plants and microorganisms, and partially implanted artificial symbols, hoping to reshape different biological patterns, and shape works such as "Angular Vortex", "Slug", and "Shadow Fin". Reflect on this issue.

Lin Lung-Chieh was born in Taichung, Taiwan in 1979. He completed his master’s degree from Applied Arts (Ceramics) Department in National Tainan University of Arts. The exhibition experience is quite rich, including 《CICA 2012》, The 32th Concurs International de Ceramica de L’Alcora, Spain, 2013《Kapfenberg》The 8th International Biannual of Ceramics, Austria, 2014 The 4th International Triennials of Silicate Arts, Hungary and The 10th Mino International Ceramics Competition, Japan, and other awards. In 2017, he won the Next Art Tainan 2017 Award, Taiwan. His works are collected in Bolesławiec Centre - International Centre of Ceramics, Poland, New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum, Tainan Art Museum, and private collections.

Oxana Geets
They seem to be alien creatures that are going to occupy the earth, but they have found traces of them in ancient civilizations.Oxana’s creations are primarily based on anatomical structures of various existing species, including some protozoans and arthropods such as insects, myriapods, and arachnids. The other important source of inspiration for her is ancient art in the widest geographical and historical sense, dating as far back as thousands of years BCE. Like the Trypillian, the Yangshao, and the Olmecs.

Lin practices his work through a set of pre-planned procedure, by digging or filling the porcelain to a single object in long hour and long period. The process of creation, the passage of time, the rhythm of the body, and the close contacting with the medium, is the ritual of his creation. As the object of the body's existence, the texture on the surface of artwork are the traces left after labor.

Yeh Yi-Li
"I make a scene from the existing things, and create things in the existing scenes."
Artist Yeh Yi-Li attempts to record the remaining clips when time flies. In reality, the scenes in memory are reset, and she tries to reconstruct the afterimages in her brain by creating. Like, the Zen in the woods, the animals in the mountains and wilderness, or even the pure white but now dying north and south poles are all beautiful memories in her mind. This forms a strong contrast with her real life. The splendid scenery is her escape from reality.

Also, she was invited to Future Pass, the official collateral event of 54th International Art Exhibition, Venice, Italy; International Ceramic Triennial UNICUM 2018 at National Museum of Slovenija-Metelkova, Ljubljana, Slovenija; 29th Festival Les Instants Vidéo”, Friche la Belle de Mai, Marseilles, France.
