Titled “Non Character Non View”, the exhibition focuses on writing and photography as main art media. Combined with the Buddhist philosophical thought of “If all forms are seen not as forms”, the title aims to look at how “characters” and “views” can become bridges to transcend the self in the hands of the artist.
