Speakers: Chu Chun-Teng, Yamauchi Terue and Jeon Gisun/Matsuda Motoyoshi
Language: Mandarin with simultaneous interpretation into English

Presentation by Chu Chun-Teng
Chu Chun-Teng is in the process of developing a new video work about Shezi Island in Taipei, a remote island removed from modernity and situated on a sandbar formed by the confluence of two rivers. This place of inconstancy and ambiguity echoes Chu’s artistic practice, which explores the inexorable frustration and predicaments we experience when confronted with both survival and desire. As well as sharing his creative process and his experience living on Shezi Island, Chu also relates his experience of residencies in China and elsewhere in Asia.

Chu Chun-Teng’s new work will be presented at CHAT’s Spring Programme 2022.

Presentation by Yamauchi Terue and Jeon Gisun/Matsuda Motoyoshi

In the exhibition, the two artists attempt to reveal a panoramic perspective of the boundaries or frameworks in human mind to encourage us to critically think about what we believe as a premise or basis for living is only one factor of existence. In this on-line presentation, two artists will share their continuing dialogue and creation process.
