Jun-Jie Wang’s video artworks created between 1984 and 1999 unquestionably echoed the course of world history in a delicate manner. After the lifting of martial law in the nascent democratized Taiwan, the artist, without any source of reference, created five video artworks addressing a riotous profusion of issues ranging from the satire on sex and social taboos, The Depth of the Epidermis, to the criticism against mass media and political hegemony: Image, Repeat, Image, The TV Channel Broadcasting Porn Everyday, FACE / TV and How Was History Wounded.
