The exhibition titled The Starry Heavens Above and the Moral Law Within is collaborated by James T. HONG and Yin-Ju CHEN.
Contemporary analyses of “drugs” are mostly confined to the disciplines of medical science and jurisprudence. In this collaborative project, the two artists innovatively address the issue of “drugs” in an interdisciplinary context by examining in depth its relationship with modernity, clashes of civilizations and consciousness awareness. Adopting various media by juxtaposing files, historical documents, paintings and videos to create the perceptional atmosphere and narration, the two artists not only investigate the concepts and metaphors of “drugs,” but also transform them into the media as reflections of the human spirit, history, culture and society.
