‘Never Left | 不曾離開’

Liang is the product of a global upbringing. He was born in Taiwan, however was raised from an early age in Mainland China. During his adolescence he relocated to Australia, and then later to Canada for high school and post-secondary education. Liang has since chosen to put down some permanent roots in Canada, and maintains a residence there to this day.

For the first time in nearly three decades, Liang has returned to the place of his birth. His intent is to reclaim a lost personal heritage and experience his native culture firsthand. This new series of work brings the discovery of something new, yet oddly familiar, to life.

The exhibition expresses a sense of nostalgia, like watching a long forgotten film once again. Liang expertly captures the everyday experience in Taiwan with an almost cinematic air. His sensitive observation of the Taiwanese experience attempt to forge connection, and create non-existent memories to compensate for his many years abroad.
