'Yang-Shen-Yuan was the first state asylum to house, institutionalize and treat mental patients during the Japanese rule in Taiwan. Using it as a prelude, the artist examines the problems that cannot be overlooked in the development of modernist society and the people that are naturally and unjustly excluded — mental patients. Drawing on their situation, he develops the works Notes on Oblivion, Body Not Mine and Dual Portraits to explore forgotten personal memories and collective consciousness, and highlight the hidden power and politics in the system in different contexts such as history, society, space and the body.' -excerpted from the Introduction
