Evoking the supple curves of the human body, an installation by the artist Others (formerly) explores the power of connection and community. Created in collaboration with Serendipity Studio for the 2023 Taipei Lantern Festival, « Gathering Pavilion » is composed of eight figurative forms that lean together with shoulders touching to establish a space with a flower-shaped opening. Each module is made from laser cut metal with a baked enamel finish, with lights incorporated near the base to shine upwards and reflect off the surface of the material.

During the exhibition earlier this year at Four South Village, Xinyi District, Taipei City, viewers « would instinctively enter the artwork, engaging in a visual dialogue with humanoid geometry or using the eight modules as frames to catch a glimpse of Taipei 101, the iconic skyscraper, » Tseng told Colossal. « The engagement of the viewers complements the artwork, embodying the original intention behind the creation of the ‘Gathering Pavilion’. »
