Scope and Content

This book was published for Ed Pien's exhibition 'Deep Waters' at the Centre Culturel canadien, Paris, France, from 19 Dec 2001- 23 Feb 2002. 

The artist transforms the exhibition space into a dark cave, filled with gawking monsters and deep, sombre blues and greys. Pien hopes to provoke in the viewer the same feelings of estrangement and fear that he himself experienced as a child arriving in Canada from Taiwan. He plunges into the exploration of the abyss, of the geography of human fear; the cave represents the mind, and the creatures of the deep are our wandering fears.
