Chang En-Man : One Room Exhibit, / End Of Year Cleaning Project

“My living space is always messy and dirty, I also dream of having clean and poetic living space. Can I throw away most things in my house in an almost paranoid and crazy condition, to frame a beautiful living space with minimal conditions? Some questions of reality comes to me, where do those mess come from? Or can I achieve sensitive and clean simplicity through physical labour? What kind of message can those everyday objects that were once related to my life bring to myself and to audience while situating in an exhibition space? What kind of viewpoint can a body of events provide to our most everyday and intimate subject - living space?”

 

Chang En-Man will try her hardest to clean up her living space, move all things that she doesn’t often use to a space called “exhibition room”. She will ponder with these objects in the exhibition, and view them as materials to rearrange, reconstruct, and recombine. During the arrangement, the exhibition space will operate as its function: exhibit within certain dates and open for 24 hours. The audience members can touch the objects in exhibit, and also take them with them (if they wish to).

    Traverse - a Chen Chia-Jen exhibition

    In recent work, the use of images is the most noticeable. The features of this medium created more gaps for exploration in its slim and non-physical form. From the movements in history, the use of found objects and site based installations has destroyed many sensory formations within the frame of paintings.
