Living alone, I often go days without seeing other people, or weeks without seeing any friends. I don't enjoy crowds or public transportation, so I rarely head out alone to just wander or window shop. However, I really enjoy art exhibits!! So when I saw on instagram that Sense, a modern Japanese artist I met at another exhibit was coming to Taipei for an exhibit, I mustered up the energy to brave the rain (it is the rainy season now) and go see the exhibition!
Since I was meeting up with local Lolitas and a visiting Hong Kongese Lolita that evening for hotpot, I was wearing my perfume bottles dress.

The exhibit was called Chopsticks Art and spans four countries with two Japanese artists in each country. Sense was accompanied here in Taipei by 田中健太郎/Kentarou Tanaka who did a beautiful series on endangered species using mixed mediums.
All the staff spoke English and the curator spoke some Chinese as well! I forgot to take photos of only the artwork, so I only have photos from Taiwan Teddy's page. The artists and Chopsticks Art instagram all have regular photos though ^_~ So check them out!
