Shih-Tung

LO Shih Tung, born in 1983, graduated from National Taiwan University of the Arts, Graduate School of Plastic Arts. He currently lives and works in Taipei, Taiwan. Lo focuses on the special textures present in our daily life, seeing them as in Walter Benjamin’s discourse — fragments and reflections of a complete structure, a whole world. His works can be viewed as organic documents, unlimited to specific mediums, attempting to arouse inquiry and contemplation on ever-changing warped messages.

 

Lo has been an artist in residency at Treasure Hill Artist Village, Taipei in 2010, and at BankArt 1929 NYK, Yokohama/Japan in 2012. His works place emphasis on the temporality in processes of creating and interacting with the community, networks, or spectators, whereby the fragmented, fissured, and forgotten history can be restored or even fictionalized. They are about seeking one’s identity, residence, hometown, and city within contemporary society — those long forgotten, unseen ghosts.Lo has participated in the 2011 Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid at Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris/ France, and also Une terrible poetique, La Biennale de Lyon, France.
