Heinrich Wang had worked as a photographer, advertiser, designer,real estate agent, actor and director before founding LIULI and tittot,bringing Taiwanese glass art into the art market with his creativity and skills.At 50, he decided to turn his focus from iridescent colored glass to pure white porcelain, which he was a total stranger to. 18 years later, he has broken through from traditional forms of porcelain and been recognized internationally for his“standing” porcelain.

The color and the narration are the components of the ultimate “white”.

The connection between Heinrich Wang and Tainan dates back to 44 years ago. The story of the three years he worked in real estate had given him a new attitude and perspective, and become a turning point that shaped his personality-pioneering spirit, practicality and outstanding creativity. Tainan to Heinrich Wang is an inspiration on his way on the roads not taken, which also reflects on different periods of his white porcelain creation. In his Standing series that consists of “1.0 New-chi”, “2.0 The Noble”, “3.0 Vision” and “4.0 Standing”, his skills that matured with ages are shown through the shapes, colors and emotions in the narrative. The imagery of the upright posture of his work is the evidence of his adamant will during the creating process.

Turning from Colored glass to white porcelain which is mainly presented through shapes is a drastic change. The color white is a reflection on his life history. Lao-Tzu compares the color white to humility and tolerance as it accentuates other colors and leaves space for creativity, which resembles Henrich Wang’s aspiration for life. The color white represents the recognition of sense, and also the exploration of sensitivity. The white Heinrich pursues is the symbol of realization, acceptance and integrity. The expense of tons of porcelain clay indicates his commitment and perseverance.

Everyone have different feelings when they look at Heinrich Wang’s work. His story, narrative and consciousness all extend to his ultimate pursuit of beauty. In the 18th century, Alexander Baumgarten first proposed the word “Aesthetics”, which originates from the Greek word αἰσθητικός(aisthetikos), to designate the discipline of study on sensory experience. Baumgarten believed that aesthetics was perceptual knowledge, which is to say that the aesthetic value of an object cannot be simply defined. We can only perceive a sense of beauty by understanding the essence of an object.

In order to pursue the ultimate beauty, Heinrich Wang left all he had accomplished in Tainan, which became the beginning of his white porcelain journey. The exhibition showcases another perspective of aesthetics with his white porcelain works and story in Tainan. His adamant pursuit speaks its own language that signifies the character of his age.

"Maybe we have given up a lot to plunge into something unknown, but we find beauty instead."- Selling Real Estate in Tainan, Aesthetic Creation
