About the artist
Guan worked in commercial design when she was young. Then, she began to make iron sculptures. Guan has traveled to more than forty different countries and she has been in residencies both in China and Hungary.
She is the founder of several noted crafts fairs in Taiwan; for instance, the one in Chiayi and the famous Crazy Fair at Ocean Home, in Yanliao Village, Hualien.
The house itself is worthy of visiting. It is transformed, with decorative method, from an ordinary old house, into an exhibition gallery and a fair-looking dwelling with a great view of nearby mountains and the ocean. There are iron sculptures made by Guan and drawings and photographs from her world-wide travels. These artworks tell stories of the artist and they are the dialogues that she would like to share.
