Yuan Goang-Ming (b.1965) currently lives and works in Taipei. He is one of the foremost Taiwanese artists of media art, and has been a pioneer of video art in Taiwan, a medium in which he started working in 1986. He received a Master’s degree in media art from the Academy of Design, Karlsruhe in 1997. Combining symbolic metaphors with technological media, his work eloquently expresses the state of contemporary existence and profoundly explores the human mind and consciousness. His works, ranging from photographs to multi-media installations, have been exhibited worldwide, including 2004 Liverpool Biennial, Tate Modern, Liverpool, UK (2004), A Strange Heaven : Contemporary Chinese Photography, National Gallery of Prague, Czech Republic, Helsinki City Art Museum, Finland (2005), X-Generation : National Taiwan Museum of Digital Art Collection Exhibition, Engien-Les-Bain, France (2007), Our Future : The Guy & Myriam Ullens Foundation Collection, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing (2008), Singapore Biennale 2008 : Wonder, Singapore (2008), In Between, Asian Video Art Weekend, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan (2008), the 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Gallery of Modern Art and Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane, Australia (2013), Schizophrenia Taiwan 2.0, Ars Electronica,Austria, Linz, CYBERFEST, Russia, St. Petersberg, Transmediale Germany, Berlin, HMKV Germany, Dortmund, Les Instant Video, France, Marseille (2014), Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale, Japan (2014), Mobile M+ : Moving Image, Midtown POP, Hong Kong (2015) and 13th Biennale de Lyon : La Vie Moderne, Musée des Confluences, Lyon, France (2015).

Peng Hung-Chih (b.1969) currently lives and works in Taipei and Beijing. The work of Peng Hung-Chih spans installation, video, painting and sculpture, incorporating elements of art, religion and humanity as a way to explore contemporary culture and reflect upon history. In his early works, dogs are the recurring themes and play a crucial role in the conceptualizations of a spiritual world. In the series of works entitled Canine Monk, Peng’s dog literally steps in the artist’s place as the creator, writing texts from religious scriptures on the wall. The most trusted companion of human beings is elevated to a performing subject, therefore replacing its human counterpart. Using different mediums and unique subjects to convey various artistic concepts, Peng forms an artistic style imbued with personal aesthetic properties. Peng has participated in major international shows such as the 2nd Fukuoka Triennale, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Japan (2002), the 10th International Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul (2007), In Between - Asian Video Art Weekend, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2008), and Moving Image in China 1988 – 2011 and Minsheng Art Museum, Shanghai (2011).

Tsui Kuang-Yu (b.1974) currently lives ad works in Taipei. He has been trying to respond to the adaptation relation between human and the society from a biological point of view. He also attempts to redefine or question the matrix of the institution we inhabit through different actions and experiments that ignore the accustomed norm. In doing so, the artist has developed new means to adapt to the environment and redefine reality. His action can be regarded as a medium, or a parameter, to gauge social tolerance. Also an attempt to show relationships in the present institution and the relation between man and his environment, His repetitive body experiments accent the absurdity of the social values and reality that people have grown accustomed to.

He has participated in major international shows such as "The Spectre of Freedom", 51 International Art Exhibition-La Biennale di Venezia, Palazzo delle Prigioni, Venice, Italy (2005), Liverpool Biennial 2006 : International 06, Tate Liverpool, Liverpool, UK (2006), "The Rencontres Internationales Paris / Berlin", Centre Georges Pompidou, National Museum Jeu de Paume, French Cinematheque, Paris, France (2006), "Thermocline of Art - New Asian Waves", ZKM Center for Art and Media, Germany (2007), "Streetwise", Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid, Spain (2008), "Biennial Cuvée", OK Centrum, Linz, Austria (2008), "Time Crevasse", Yokohama Triennial 2008, Center for Contemporary Art (CCA) Kitakyushu, Yokohama, Japan (2008), "The View from Elsewhere", Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, Sydney, Gallery of Modern Art, and the Cinematheque, Brisbane, Australia (2009), "Extra / Ordinary : Video Art from Asia", Spencer Museum of Art, Kansas, US (2009), "ILLUSIONISMO", CaixaForum Madrid, Lleida, Palma de Mallorca, Barcelona, Spain (2010).
