The first exhibition of The Six Nomads - Set Theory
"Set Theory" is a mathematical theory pioneered by the German mathematician G. Cantor (1845~1918) in the 1870s. It is the study and research of sets, groups and elements. Although this theory is based on logical thinking, some may think it is not related to art, but in fact all art activities, from the birth of an idea to the completion of the artwork, the artist has experienced multiple thought processes. In addition to subjective emotions, artists encounter different externalities and multiple factors in the creative process, and those thinking and ideas are all interlock each other. (Common Set)?We intuitively think about an emerging ideas, looking for the intersection among, then we sort and sort… using the commons to establish a network, and then processing, classifying and combing in an artistic way, finally it become a series of artwork.
In the artists (people) extent, set theory can explain the elements and methods between us (groups). The common interest in art is the meeting point of us, and it constitutes a common set, which in turn become this exhibition. The idea of the works between us echoes each other is also a “Common Set”.
The contents of this exhibition include life experiences, personal consciousness, nature and people, and reflection on life. We hope this "exhibition" will provide a way and a multi-dimensional perspective to the viewer, and we encounter a “Common Set” together.
