The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) is presenting Superficially - Giacomo Zaganelli Solo Exhibition from Sat. Dec. 16, 2017– Sun. Jan. 28, 2018. In recent year, artist Giacomo Zaganelli have gone back and forth between Europe and Taiwan consistently for his creation, then he realized even though two places have different culture, history, and custom, under the impact of globalization, citizens share common life experiences and value. 


Built an Italian Renaissance style Façade in Museum Plaza

The large-scale installation displayed in the plaza of the museum, Façade, refers to the peculiar aspect of the Florentine landscape emerged within recent years. The artist applies tarps printed with the centuries-old façades of Florence historical building to cover the scaffoldings, attempting to make a duplicate of the way that the city covers up the construction site in order to maintain its perfect impression. However tourists still take selfie with these superficial images. Through this work, the artist explores issues such as reality, imagination, origin, copy in the philosophy context, and attempts to encourage the audience to reexamine the superficial impression in our daily life.   


Reveal the Illusion in Life via Real Documentary

In the gallery displayed three pieces of video work: Everywhere but Nowhere filmed in Florence city, a boy sitting beside a historical building and being absorbed in his smartphone; Three-channel video Installation Illusion is a realistic depiction of the daily scene of Florence - being overwhelmed by the tourists; In the work Relocation, the artist temporarily transforms the urbanscape in something unexpected, creating a dialogue between the architectures of Florence and Taipei.This video also features interviews with Taiwanese intellectuals who share their opinions about symptoms of mediatization in Taiwanese society and the phenomena of smartphone addiction across Asia.   

The “Superficially” examined in this exhibition does not point at ancient city’s traditional and romantic impression but exposes how virtual landscapes have successfully dominated modern people’s perceptual life. Working with the exhibition space inside the museum, Giacomo Zaganelli presents in this exhibition a series of videos and installations he has created in Taiwan, with the exhibition further extended outwards to the museum’s outdoor plaza, allowing the audience to experience his impactful art in a more direct manner.
