Jean-Paul Sartre said: “Man is a useless passion”. But “A Pile of Passion” here refers to these reciprocally abstract and concrete, simultaneously mobile and still, subtle and complex artworks. We intend to build a vast passion connection, penetrating artists’ working and creating process. The enthusiasm and inspiration of executing art, from artists’ minds, passing through their studios, are spread in the exhibition space, embodied into a poem on illusory bliss, installations composed of surplus material, a cyber ruins wanderer, a fearless bullfighter or dancer, views on an unconscious youth, even a fatal orange virus sphere...Let’s forget for a moment these useful or useless theories, and dash as before toward this pile of passion as much as life can exert.
