Gaia Project : The Elegant Giant - Chiu Chen-Hung Solo Exhibition

Chiu Chen-Hung’s art-making is like an archeological adventure. Digging in specific field in the time he lives in. These specific field comes from a faraway image of eternity, or something close-by that is disappearing. For him, the people and legends surrounding his own life is the drive for him to actively performs his body for memorialising, and also to develop a series of art-making. These artworks are unlike a traditional memorial representing sacred and eternal. They are more like a humble investigation, into personal experience and logics. Gaia Project – The Elegant Giant, a project from 2011, continue to focus on the exchanges between the objects and their source. He collected rood panels from early Taiwanese timber buildings; the broken surfaces were fixed up and reworked. These large vessel-like sculptures connect us in past and present in spirit, like a real tunnel through time.

First from marble, to the Bodhisattva and finally to the animal sculptures, the artist reactivates the chiseled...

    Looking ‧ Souvenir: Artists Images

    It’s a kind of warmth from freshly baked bread, an invitation, an observation, a change and a test for adventuring hearts. After experiencing an information overload from artistic fulfillment mixed with the growth and exhaustion from long travels, artists have a small part in their heart that is slowly changing, building and settling down, as if fermenting in butterfly effects.
