As an ancestral form of aircraft, the kite has played multiple roles in our lives for thousands of years. Whether it is an activity based on rich folk traditions, wars that are aimed to protect a country and its fellowmen, truth-seeking scientific research, or leisure activities that help people relieve stress, and even elaborate artworks, the importance and impact of kites can be found in many aspects of life. Technological advances in the modern world have brought many more possibilities in kite creation.
Buteo Huang, a Taiwanese kite-builder, knows how to make the best use of advanced materials and a profound knowledge of structural mechanics and Taiwanese cultures, so as to bring a new face to this old invention in the modern era.
Welcome to this exhibition. You’ll be amazed at the number of kites, and come to appreciate the profound knowledge and artisanship through this richly diversified display.
