Chen-Hung

CHIU Chen-Hung, born 1983 in Hualien, Taiwan, graduated from National Taiwan University of the Arts, graduate School of Plastic Arts. He currently lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan.

His creative works revolve around collecting those inadvertently hidden objects/people and legends surrounding him, as well as rewriting the ambiguous ties between these “anonymous identities” and the locality, in a sense analogous to the connections between body and building, city and cells, monuments and intimacy. Comparable to the process of remodeling monuments, he strips away the logic designed and rationalized by social structures in attempt to rename those that offer significance and meaning to each material. Yet, unlike the citations made through reminiscing in the past, his works are instead sincere observations which explore personal experience and logic.

 

Important exhibitions Chiu participated in include the Liverpool Biennial: City States (2012), ThaiTai: A Measure of Understanding, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (2012), Une terrible poetique, La Biennale de Lyon, Galerie Olivier Hong (2011), Arte da Taiwan, Museo di Arte Contemporanea di Villa Croce, Genova (2011), Taiwan Calling-The Phantom of Liberty, Műcsarnok Museum, Budapest (2010), etc.

 

In 2012, he was also chosen as an artist in residence at Cite internationale des arts Paris for the 12th Visual Arts Talent Exchange Program conducted by the Taiwan Ministry of Culture.
