Scope and Content

This catalogue was published for Shyu's exhibition in Taiwan in 1999.

One of the major defining characteristics of Shyu Ruey-Shiann's work is the way in which he uses mechanical elements both as a creative media and as the focus of a deeper discussion concerning the meaning of life. For Shyu, machines are not just an extension of human body or sinew, to be used for the express purpose of completing daily tasks. Through artistic creation, machines can be infused with living memories and concern for life. The exhibition 'A Language of Precision and Abstraction: Overture to Life' stands as the best possible interpretation of the different characteristics identifiable in Shyu Ruey-Shiann's work.
