This event has ended.

Outside the gallery, the lens of a telescope beckons viewers to peer inside the gallery space. By looking into the telescope's lens, viewers become aware that the expected panoramic view will be satisfied in the figurative sense only. "Upside Down" subverts the expected view by reflecting the gallery space turned upside down. Viewers will step back surprised and take a closer look through the gallery's window without the telescope again in order to find out what they seem to have overlooked with the naked eye. This allegorical play on the constant dialogue between expectation and vision, truth and imagery is also extrapolated through "With Your Own Eyes," a hole in the gallery wall through which a viewer will see a reflection of his own eye rather than a voyeuristc view through a private space inside the gallery.
