Now on view, Rebirth: Kang Muxiang is an exhibition of six large-scale monumental sculptures by Taiwanese artist, Kang Muxiang sited outdoors in the gardens. Massive yet graceful, the embryonic forms are made from steel elevator cables, , a nearly unwilling material. These cables are reused from the elevators of Taipei 101, one of the world’s tallest buildings. The works range in size, with the largest standing nearly ten feet tall and weighing several thousand pounds.
Rebirth: Kang Muxiang is organized by GFS as a part of a series of projects that affirm the institution’s commitment to reflecting the diversity of its region and the dynamic world around it, using art to encourage understanding and to unite people across cultures. The installation was generously supported by the Taiwan Land Development Corporation and Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York.
