Supported by Taiwan’s Ministry of Culture, a new partnership programme between the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (Manchester), Site Gallery (Sheffield) and Lancaster’s Live at LICA is delivering a series of exhibitions across the country.

The exhibitions will bring about the first UK solo showcase of work by acclaimed Taiwanese artist Wu Chi-Tsung. The Lancaster edition of RECALIBRATE will host a unique split-site exhibition between Live at LICA’s Peter Scott Gallery and The Storey in Meeting House Lane.

Wu Chi-Tsung is interested in how images are made and seen. Landscape, nature and the urban environment feature in his work and the themes are central to the Recalibrate programme exhibitions. Although his early influences come from painting, specifically Eastern shan shui works and Western watercolour landscapes, his powerful work is often realised through video, photography, installation and performance.

The two Lancaster galleries will present artworks that include the all-encompassing installation Crystal City 004 (a newly commissioned work for Recalibrate), cyanotypes from the Wrinkled Textures series and several examples from Wu Chi-Tsung’s elegant landscape and still life video works.

There is a free opening event at The Storey which starts at 6.30pm on January 31 and features a unique opportunity to hear the artist talk about his work.
