In 2019, artist Chen Han Sheng held his third solo exhibition “After the Explosion” in Powen Gallery.  Inspired by a noise barrier wall, his work tours the area between the Ren Da Industrial Park (Renwu Industrial Park and Dashe Industrial Park) and the Chingyun Temple in Dashe District to describe daily co-existence with crisis in Kaoshiung's agricultural industry and petrochemical industry.

A graduate of Taipei National University of the Arts Department of New Media Art, Chen Han Sheng began his solo exhibitions in 2016 with “Green & Gray” and “The Last Farm Boy.”  The genesis of both exhibitions is in the agricultural livelihood of his family.  His works are an analogy between the labor of art and the labor of farming and explored him as an artist and his relationship with his family.

Chen Han Sheng launched the “After the Explosion” from the Green Memorial Wall in Sanzhong Road, Ren Da Industrial Park.  He observed and delved into the daily life of Dashe District both inside and outside of the noise barrier wall.  In addition to labor, he also discussed the definition of another type of "slack farming season".
