The “Culture Section” of Yang’s MADE IN TAIWAN series represents an important turning point in his work. His sudden conceptual developmen t and dramatic changes in subject matter were the result of enrolling at the National Institute of the Arts (today’s Taipei National University of the Arts), where he assiduously studied for his graduate degree from 1999 to 2002, and his incorporation of new computer imaging techniques. Unlike his “Political Section” cr itical of current affairs and his “History Section” concerned with distant history, Yang’s “Culture Sec tion” relies on references to pān-sian (扮仙 playing the role of God, a form of Chinese folk opera), pop-culture, comic-book characters, and a blend of wúlítóu (無厘頭 makes no sense) and e’gao (惡搞 kuso) humor. In this new section, Yang subverts aestheticism and good taste by mixing frivolity, insolence and sexually suggestive imagery to create outlandish and nearly erotic works.
