Chieh-Hsin Tsai uses paper mache( a warm, textured and environmentally friendly medium) to create her work, communicating the emotional exchange between human beings. She noticed that many people living a fast-paced life in the city often fail to notice the small things. Thus, in the rare, quiet space of Be Yoga, Tsai’s imaginative yet lifelike creatures invite viewers to join their spontaneous party. They can play under the summer sun in The Garden, temporarily leaving their work and chores behind, and to enjoy life’s most basic and simple pleasures instead.
Be Yoga does not have a large, eye-catching sign, but it does not need one: its clean white walls and cozy green yard is enough to create a lasting impression. This yoga workshop, tucked in Taipei’s bustling Eastern District, is a space for one to escape the fast lane and find a comfortable rhythm through yoga lessons, thus promoting a more relaxed lifestyle.
