About the art
Consistent with Yeo Shih Yun’s long-standing fascination with spontaneous gestures, random occurrences and use of unconventional tools, the seven ink drawings in Chance Encounters《偶然》were created according to a set of rules devised by the artist.

Both Yeo’s ink experimentations and Liaw’s erhu arrangements drew inspiration from the inventive compositions and unorthodox ideas of chance found in the works of artist and composer John Cage.
