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.

It’s as if asking, in a much heard tone, “we are still anxious about how to form a complete puzzle with broken pieces. If we are further and further away from the studio, what’s the position of producing or the identity of being artists?”.
