Chin Chih Yang "Kill Me or Change" - a new performance
at the Queens Museum of Art


Performances by the artist on July 28 and 29, 2012

Chin Chih Yang suspends 30,000 aluminum cans—the average number of cans one person throws away over a lifetime—contained in a mesh net suspended 30 feet above ground in a crane which hovers over the audience. As the finale to each performance, the contents of the net will be released onto Yang's head, in a colorful and overwhelming display of aluminum waste. By showing, quite literally, the suffocating effects of one person's personal polluting, Yang hopes this piece will serve as a call to action, and that audience members and the public at large will examine their habits of personal consumption.

"Kill Me or Change" is one of 13 artist project to
receive the Franklian Furnace grant award for
2011-2012.

Now I would like to invite you or your organization to help, and involve with this project, if you or your organization are interesting, please contact me at chin@123soho.com

Artist Chin Chih Yang creates a unique relationship between art and performance. The proposed project, Kill Me or Change, reflects the environmental movement slogan "Recycle or Die." This art event will challenge viewer-participants to contemplate the effects of over-consumption. The event, when realized, will mount 30,000 aluminum cans in a mesh net, suspended at the end of a crane and hovering over the head of the artist. The final execution will require an audience member to pull a string and (safely) release the contents- which represents the average consumption of cans over one person's lifetime- onto the head of Chin Chih Yang.

Mathematics of Light

Bridges 2012: Bridges Towson 2012:

http://bridgesmathart.org/bridges-2012/2012-asian-arts-gallery/

Mathematics, Music, Art, Architecture, Culture July 25-29, 2012 at Towson University, located in the Baltimore Metropolitan Area The Bridges Conference, the largest mathematics and art interdisciplinary conference in the world, has traveled to cities in North America and Europe, and attracted participants from over thirty countries. The conference will feature presentations of full and short papers, hands-on workshops, invited talks, an art exhibition, a math/art short movie festival, a theatre night, a music night, a mathematical poetry reading, a math/art excursion, and a family day. Papers will be published in the refereed conference proceedings. Exhibition: Mathematics of Light by Chin Chih Yang June 29 - July 31, 2012 Asian Arts Gallery, Towson University Multidisciplinary artist Chin Chih Yang was born in Taiwan, and has resided for many years in New York City. His interests in ecology and constructed environments have resulted in interactive performances and installations that have been exhibited both nationally and internationally. Chin Chih Yang's "Mathematics of Light" is sculpture/installation made of cans and other recyclable materials, which signals a conservation aesthetic in a society for the most part dedicated to waste. Not only do the cans have aesthetic features, such as shape, color, texture, and a certain relationship to light, they are themselves representations of what might have gone on to pollute the planet, had they not been put to more creative ends. Also: essential to "Mathematics of Light" is the use of modern and emergent technologies, enabling the artist to create an immersive environment participants can interact with and even move about in.

NYFA Gallery - 2011 Digital Electronic Arts Fellows Exhibition - "Building A Future Human Bodies" and "Broken Mind"

Time: June 11, to December 11, 2012
Location: New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA)
20 Jay Street, Suite 740, Brooklyn, NY 11201

Hyperallergic

Diving into the Static of Some Recent Digital and Electronic Arts
by Allison Meier on October 2, 2012

The 2011 Digital/Electronic Arts NYFA Fellows Exhibit at the New York Foundation for the Arts is a curious exhibition, not least because with all of its technological focus, some of its highlights are aimed at connecting with nature. I stopped by during this past weekend's Dumbo Arts Festival, an event that seemed to be lacking on much new media art in comparison to previous years (aside from monolithic installations, with the "Codex Dynamic" projections on the Manhattan Bridge and "Superheros" by Wildbytes), so I was interested in what sort of snapshot this would offer of contemporary digital and electronic arts. The group show in the NYFA Dumbo office, a rather untraditional exhibition setting, features 17 artists who received 2011 Digital/Electronic Arts fellowships from the organization. The awards are their common ground, as the uses of technology in their work are incredibly diverse. I found among the fellows some artists to keep an eye on for their creative perspectives on how technology can be a bridge or receptor between their audience and their ideas.

Dystopic predictions from Chin Chih Yang of a future when our bodies will be integrated with electronics, like projectors and cameras.

"Building A Future Human (Bodies)" – by Chin Chih Yang
"Building A Future Human (Bodies)" is work on about what humans will become if modified by technological devices. Our future bodies will probably be significantly modified by technical appendages. The audience and I will present the potential of the human body, and the potential of technology as a fully integrated means of communication.

 

 

 

Breathing project at FiveMyles Gallery

Date: May 3 – June 3, 2012
Opening: Sunday, May 6, 5 – 7 pm
Hours: Thur, Fri, Sat, Sun, 1 to 6 p.m. or by appointment: 718-783-4438
Location: FiveMyles, 558 St. Johns Place, Brooklyn, NY 11238

Chin Chih Yang
Commissioned Installation

This project will be primarily made of cans and other recyclable materials (Industrial cables, plastic and hospital use oxygen tube and more). The artist looks for a conservational aesthetic in a society for the most part dedicated to waste. Not only do the cans have aesthetic features themselves such as shape, color, texture, and a certain relationship to light, the sheer multitude of cans used in the installation shows how much more waste would have gone into the landscape had it not been for the Chin Chieh Yang's creative endeavor with this project. — at FiveMyles.



Human Earthquake

I am bringing this work to New York City, to bring a message to the whole world.

Chin Chih Yang's "Human Earthquake" interactive performance
part II will take place in Manhattan on Sunday, October 9:

• First location/time: 12: 00 - 1:00 PM, 20 Broadway,
(Charging Bull)
• Second location/time: 3:00 - 4:00 PM, Time Square
between 46 St & 47 St.
• Third location/time: 5:00 - 6:00 PM, Union Square Park South

Human Earthquake III - — at The Hive at 55 Broad Street.

Recently, New York experienced a rare earthquake (Aug. 23) and the powerful force of Hurricane Irene (Aug. 27) within a span of a few days. New York very rarely experiences natural disasters, but for populations in many other places in the world, earthquakes and other destructive natural events—hurricanes and typhoons, floods, volcanic eruptions, landslides, drought—are frequent occurrences resulting in catastrophic damage and tremendous numbers of deaths and injuries, which continuously impact future generations, and social and economic progress...

“Family Values” by Chin Chih Yang

As many of you may already know, I’ve been spending a good deal of time in my native Taiwan. The reason for this is that my father is not feeling well, and I want to spend more time with him, helping him in whatever way I can. This being my primary concern, I haven’t been able to exhibit and perform these past few weeks, and will probably not be able to do so until I return to the US. The circumstances confronting me, though, are not contrary to my art. As an interactive performance artist, my work essentially involves the unexpected, as the events I create develop in terms of the people who attend and participate in them.

This being the case, I want to embark on a new project whose theme will be “family values,” the significance of the familiar, of the sensation of “home,” even when we are away from it. I do yet know what form this new project will take, but I see it as an extension of my work as an artist and performer. All healthy, vital things, can incorporate novelty and unexpected occurrences into their development; only when they begin to decay does the need for exclusivity arise, at which point expansion has stopped and particles in the stream of life have come to be considered “foreign.” My work as an interactive performance artist has always built itself around the spontaneous and the unanticipated, and the experiences I’m facing now will come into form as a new kind of material for a new kind of art.

The theme of this new work will be care and the solidarity of the family.




Chin Chih Yang's Dragon Boat project will join Sea Worthy -
PRESENTED BY EFA PROJECT SPACE, FLUX FACTORY AND THE GOWANUS STUDIO SPACE
SUMMER, 2011


Part II: Workshops at The Gowanus Studio Space
Ongoing: May through July, 2011
Part III: Excursions brought to you by Flux Factory
Ongoing: July through September, 2011

My dragon-boat will be more imaginative than traditional ones, but the opportunity for cultural exchange is still present, as well as an opportunity for everyone to work together for a greater human good. The construction of the dragon-boat will allow the general public to engage with aspects of a tradition they might be unfamiliar with; it will also be a way of making apparent the inclusiveness, even the continuity, of cultures as seemingly disparate as those in the East and those in the West.

"I'm not sure that how much I can do this project this summer, but I will finish it next year."

100 heart-shaped memorials will be prepared for the performance, a symbol of the people still missing after the earthquake. Each memorial is an emblem of our solidarity with Japan and its people.

unprecedented national disaster
An explosion at a Japanese nuclear plant has triggered fears of a meltdown; and a massive earthquake and tsunami has left more than 15,000 dead and at least 10,000 missing. Workers douse the stricken reactors with sea water, while Japan’s Prime Minister Naoto Kan notes the chaos unleashed by the recent earthquake was an “unprecedented national disaster.” Nuclear contamination is potentially spreading to all corners of the globe.

The pioneer of Modern Printmaking in Taiwan

•Demo and talks @ Chelsea Art Museum: Saturday March 5, 2011 2-5pm •Exhibition runs from March 4 to May 7, 2011


New sprouts stretch silently, about to break out of the ground. The earth is in the process of awakening. let us get together and celebrate this unique event! Enjoy the master's work from Taiwan @ Chelsea Art Museum.

Liao's work is intimately involved with and reflects the influence of his environment. His art is always fresh and vital because of its local Taiwanese flavor and abundance of unique cultural phenomena, such as the use of red and golden leaves of eastern mythology. The subjects of his art are daily objects, which seemingly belie the underlying universality of the motifs as well as the profound emotion lurking under the surface of his art's symmetry. Thus, his art is simultaneously rational and emotional, local folk art and global.

Gate Series
Liao commenced his artistic career by looking for a way to use the techniques that he had learned in France, the United States, and Japan with his cultural background. One of his earlier answers to this artistic challenge, undertaken when he lived in New York and studied at the Pratt Graphics Center, was his Gate Series. Typically, these geometrically organized prints employed red, black, and gold - the colors traditionally found in Taiwanese temples - and exhibited a high degree of symmetry. Gates of course are potent symbols of entrance and passage as well as secrets both hidden and about to be revealed. The prints in the Gate Series, with their religious symbols and representations of items from daily life, concerned themselves not so much with the individual but more emphatically with the relations between man and society and between man and the universe.


Symbols of Life Series

Liao developed much later a series in some ways reminiscent of the Gate Series; the Symbols of Life Series also made extensive use of objects from daily life in Taiwan - for example, houses, chopsticks, scissors, fans, combs, and so on - arranged symmetrically within boundaries. These silkscreens, also using red, black, and gold, convey feelings of auspiciousness and good luck - similar to the traditional Taiwanese prints of the gods of wealth and good fortune which people hang in their homes in order to bring harmony and good luck to the household.

Dream Series

After the death in 2002 of Liao's wife of over 40 years, his art changed dramatically. These mixed-media works largely abandoned the red, black and gold of his earlier paintings as well as their highly symmetric organizations. This series featured hands stretched forth from the ground towards the sky, as if from beyond the grave. The stark contrast between life and death reflects the dualistic yin-yang relationship.

Recent Developments

After the therapy of the Dream Series, Liao has turned to different subjects and equally importantly to different methods. He has expanded his repertoire to sculpture and returned to oil painting as well. Still now, he continues to promote printmaking all over the world.

 

 

Chin Chih Yang --

"Protection" Interactive performance at PPL (PANOPLY PERFORMANCE LABORATORY) in Surreal Estate, join the BETA Spaces (Bushwick Exhibition Triangle of Alternative Spaces) is a free one-day festival
Time: Sunday November 14th, 2010, 5:00pm - 8:00pm


An interactive performance by Chin Chih Yang, “Protection” is a dramatization of the physical susceptibility individuals are made to suffer in the face of political and social measures supposedly designed for their mutual benefit. It continues the public quality that cuts across the whole of his work. As in most of Yang's performances, “Protection” recreates the divisiveness individuals experience within and around themselves, exploring the emotional sub-texture that underlies a media-centered world bent on reducing truth to spectacle.

Yang’s work originally stems from a deep study of Lao Tzu and the philosophy of Taoism—but he has since come to incorporate the actual rhythms and discords of human society, exhibiting them in terms of the waste materials wantonly discarded by human production. Both disturbing and entrancing, Yang’s work captures the complex state of anxiety and compulsive-fascination specific to the problems of our time. The dramatization of “Protection” represents more than masochistic denial—it enacts the divided quality of a society that shelters the privileged Self while victimizing the Other. The discordant theme of the performance, highlighted by the artist’s susceptibility to harm, portrays a world where social destiny and individual freedom awkwardly co-exist. Ultimately, it is not the violent implications, or the potential for gore, that Yang presents his audience—but rather the need for compassion, to make more than gestures at the tragedies people suffer throughout the world.

Yang’s work is at once irreverent, philosophical, and inescapably political. The images he casts are generally those of someone wholly taken in by the literal promises of political leaders. Though often presented through deranged characterizations, Yang’s performances retain much of what is generally valued by the status quo—a life of ease, abundance, and acceptance to majority rule. A person is generally valued for his or her social status, which leaves the mind in an obscure position, unsought for by utilitarian logic. What remains are exterior attributes: physique, clothes, resumes of potential. Yang’s work cuts through this surface texture, reenacting what lies behind the sheen of appearances. Working past the commercialized images of world affairs, Yang presents an exploded diagram of what underlies the words marketed by politicians.

Born in Taiwan, Chin Chih Yang has resided for many years in Lower Manhattan. He moved to the US when he was in his early twenties and attended Pratt, supporting himself by working various jobs. An accomplished painter, performance artist, video artist, and photographer, his interests in ecology and constructed environments have resulted in interactive performances and installations that have been exhibited in such spaces as: the Chelsea Museum, Queens Museum, the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, Exit Art, Flux Factory, the UN, and Union Square Park. While in New York, he is working to complete the large-scale installation, “The Control of Fear,” which will use a variety of modern and emergent technologies to simulate unpredictable catastrophic events. He recently returned from a residency in North Carolina, where he presented his interactive installation: “Coughing Earth.”

 

 

Outer Space project

An imaginary outer space village to be inhabited by humans seeking refuge from the polluted Earth. They include the effects of totalitarianism, surveillance, quarantine and isolation, and environmental issues of pollution. The work satirically draws attention to the waste generated everyday by the seemingly ... benign act of consuming a beverage. Lights will illuminate the sea of cans, which may be accompanied by video commenting on conspicuous consumption.

Prayer for Haiti
An Interactive Performance by Chin Chih Yang

In traditional Taiwanese culture, the sky-lantern is a message of peace. Lanterns were sent aloft that loved ones might know everything was OK, that life continued in the wake of disaster. Following this custom, interactive performance artist Chin Chih Yang wishes you to rally around him in show of your support for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Imagine thousands of lanterns ascending the sky, illuminating the prospect of a world where life has triumphed over death, where warmth and humanity outmatch hopelessness and indifference! Join us in our cause to strengthen the Haitian people in their time of need. You can make donations, or simply walk with us, showing your support for Haiti at this moment of crisis.

 

 

The War Against AIDS/HIV - Queens Museum of Art

The war against AIDS/HIV— AIDS/HIV is the epidemic of the 20/21st Century. As of 2007, more than 2500,000 people have been infected worldwide and have died. The rapid spread of AIDS took the world by surprise. Fortunately, it has now been contained as a result of cooperation between governments, the public and scientists worldwide. But has AIDS been eradicated? Unfortunately, the answer is NO! My work is how the Federal Government and we can work together to totally control of HIV (the the human immunodeficiency virus).

Carry Water I, II, III - NY BA

An interactive performance by Chin Chih Yang, Oct.10, 17 and 24, 2009, New York City

Water is fundamental to life, but how much is too much and how much is too little? Developed countries are fortunate to have seemingly endless supplies of running water in every building, while in undeveloped countries, residents are forced to find and carry water some times long distances to their homes.

For my project, I will carry two buckets of ice water the full length of Manhattan, Saturday day (Oct. 10) – walking from New Museum to Chelsea Art Museum, Second day (Oct. 17) –walking from Whitney Museum to Guggenheim Museum, Thire day (Oct. 24) – walking from MoMA to Metropolitan Museum of Art.

In order to follow the dictum not to waste water, during the walk, I will attempt not to spill any water from the buckets. In addition, to convey the different cultures that are forced to carry their own water, I will research the different ways they do this and at different points along the route, change how I will carry it – with a stick across the back of my neck holding a bucket on either side, or on top of my head, for example. As an additional challenge, I may take the subway for one stop along the route to reflect New York City's culture.

ICE EMERGENCY!

Burning ICE
An interactive installation by Chin Chih Yang
August 1, 2009, 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Union Square Park near 14th Street, New York City

Total ICE use for this project:21,000lbs

On August 1, experience the melting of Earth's ice at Burning ICE , an interactive ice environment by Chin Chih Yang. You are invited to cool down on a giant ice bench while your human warmth melts the frozen water—a mirror of how human activity is hastening the melting of the world's great ice deposits.

The rapid melting of ice in the Arctic, Greenland, and elsewhere due to climate change is occurring at an ever-increasing rate. H igher sea levels, widespread coastal flooding, and the inundation of Lower Manhattan are very real possibilities. Burning ICE is designed to increase awareness of the importance of Earth's ice to us all.

This project is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Additional support provided by New York Foundation for the Arts, and the Taiwanese community: Passport to Taiwan, Taiwan Center, Taiwanese Association of America Greater New York Chapter, Dr. Lung Fong Chen, and the Culture Center of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York.

PollutionSolution IV

Interactive Performance with Installation
11:00 am to 6:00 pm, May 24, 2009
Union Square Park South, New York City

Unfortunately, pollution has become an integral part of our lives. We ourselves are the only ones who may be able to come up with a collective solution to this dilemma. Chin Chih Yang's art attempts to help us think "outside the box" in our efforts to come up with a plan to save ourselves and our planet.

Chin Chih Yang's Free Money project at Chelsea Art Musuem and Taipei Cultural Center

Highly interactive, the multi-media projections, paired with discomforting sounds will create a disco-like feeling of chaotic dizziness. Quickly as bearings are regained, the visitor as participant will begin to deconstruct the scene and understand the artist's total vision.





PollutionSolution III at the Gallery - in Wall Street

In Yang's most recent body of work, he addresses society's efforts to protect itself physically and psychologically against catastrophes natural and man-made, such as pollution, surveillance, quarantine and isolation, as well as religious and political intolerance. Found and used objects concurrently highlight the plenitude in our lives and metaphorically display twisted relationships marked by mutual dependence and conflict. With a touch of irony, Yang's art invites viewers to become better acquainted with the dark side of human nature and to think outside the box in order to find a collective solution to save ourselves and our planet.



ACAW ( Asin Contemporary Art Week)2009-New York City hottest contemporary art event. Catch an exciting new series of "Dream in a contemporary Secret Garden" exhibition by 12 artists at Chelsea Art Museum.

Dream in a Contemporary Secret Garden public programs Presented by The Forum at CAM

In conjunction with the exhibition Dream in a Contemporary Secret Garden, The Forum at CAM presents a curator-led tour, a panel discussion, and an artist demonstration.

The exhibition presents mixed media works by 12 artists from Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and New York exploring the notion of a garden, an ever-popular theme in Eastern and Western art alike. Depictions of gardens send messages to the dreamer. Gardens change with seasons, according to the aspect of nature revealed, and due to human implication. Meanwhile, a dream encapsulates a person's spirit; it is a journey, a sequence of images, sounds, feelings, and experiences that transcends time and space. The notion of a dream in a secret garden conjures a romantic, or even erotic, scene, but the definition of a garden is not necessarily limited to a luscious, flora-filled oasis.

The big city is a garden landscape lying beyond nature; it too is full of secrets. To uncover its art is to discover its secret gardens. Calmness and concentration are vital in pursuit of these secrets. The artworks presented here communicate multiple perspectives to create a startling new landscape. In the city jungle, artists suppress ordinary views to articulate the secret gardens of the mind.

Exhibition tour Thursday 5/14 at 5 pm
Curator Luchia Meihua Lee will lead an interactive tour of the exhibition Dreams in a Contemporary Secret Garden. Artists in the show will also be available to talk about their work and answer questions.

Panel discussion & artist demonstration by Kotaro Fukui Saturday 5/16 at 4 pm
Visitors are invited to watch artists Kotaro Fukui as he uses his hand creates art with free lines and natural curves along the rice paper laid out on the floor. Admire the immense concentration and graceful movement of the artist while he makes drawing. A fourth generation artist, Kotaro Fukui's work is notably steeped in the tradition of Nihonga and the modern Japanese avant-garde. His vision and talent unfolds through a range of materials, lyrical expressions, and historical influences of traditional Japanese art. Following the demonstration, Fukui and the other artists in the exhibition will explain their work and take questions from the audience.

The Forum at CAM highlights the synthesis of the visual arts and other creative forms to foster critical thinking about today's world. Artist and curator talks, panel discussions, film screenings, performances, and other activities contextualize the exhibitions on view and provide an opportunity for deeper exploration of their themes. Presenting these programs to the public is an integral part of Chelsea Art Museum's mission to encourage cross-cultural dialogue and promote respect for the world at large through the arts.


All events are free with Museum admission ($8 / $4 students and seniors).

Chin Chih Yang join the Queens International 4 - Queens Biennial Exhibition at Queens Museum of Art
January 24 – April 26, 2009

In 2000, the US census revealed the borough of Queens to be the most diverse county in the nation. Two years later, the Queens Museum of Art inaugurated Queens International , a biennial exhibition of artists from around the world who live and/or work in Queens.  Celebrating the most recent artistic achievements of Queens with 42 artists, collaborations and collectives from 18 countries working in a broad range of traditional and unorthodox media, the exhibition examines the boundaries of culture, tradition, heritage and nationality. 

Like its predecessors, Queens International 4 addresses the relationship between “internationalism” and “multiculturalism” from a local standpoint. Culture is the logic by which we give order to the world. No one stands outside of it.  In Queens, one comes to recognize that nations are not walled fortresses but rather permeable containers for the fluid shifts of culture. Here, multiculturalism does not imply a static representation of international identities but rather an ever-changing shift amongst multiple cultures that blurs ethnic, racial, gendered and ideological boundaries. Circumventing conventional art discourse to engage with their immediate surroundings, the artists of Queens ignite a critical dialogue through lived experience, often in the form of collaborative, site-specific and public practices.
Queens International 4 is co-curated by José Ruiz and Erin Sickler.

Congratulations to the Second five artists selected by our panel for “The Best of 123Soho 2008 Art Show".

Curated by Chin Chih Yang


They are Agustín Bilbao, Oscar Basurto Carbonell, Nilgun Akyol, Jim Whipple, and Slavomír Zombek. Please keep in mind that these were culled from over 1,300 works of art, most of which were of very high caliber, and that the submissions were not limited to the United States , but are international in origin.
The order in which the artists are being displayed, is not indicative of the quality of the work.

The next 5 artists will be displayed in Oct..

Agustín Bilbao
Departing from the drawing, Agustín Bilbao has been setting down a solid substratum up to be decanting by the study of the human face, where he seems to have found his route of more suitable expression.

Jim Whipple
10 years ago I found myself in a psychiatric crisis hospital, suicidally depressed. When the nurse walked me down the hallway and opened the door to the craft room I laughed and said no way, I am not doing this. But I sat in there until I got bored enough to pick up a brush and a kids watercolor set. I painted a very nice picture of a tree branch that I had in the pocket of my gown. I fell in love with painting that week in the hospital. Maybe that's the real reason I went there!

Title: 1,000 years

Chin Chih Yang's work addresses society's efforts to protect itself physically and psychologically against various catastrophes, both natural and man-made. These include environmental problems, such as pollution, as well as the effects of totalitarianism, surveillance, plus quarantine and isolation.

1,000 dollars is not a lot. 1,000 days is not too long. But 1,000 years is a long, long time. Can you imagine how much waste we accumulate every day? Do you know that it will take more than 1,000 years for our trash to become biodegradable in the landfills, which emit harmful greenhouse gases ?

 

 

123soho Fearture artists, Chin Chih Yang's exhibition at Tribes Gallery in NYC - Apri, 2008

New York-based artist Chin Chih Yang's recent body of work is at once enticing and disturbing, alluring and disconcerting.

In his first solo show at Tribes Gallery, Yang's conceptual works will tantalize viewers with provocative videos providing delicious commentary on human foibles and a striking installation piece that stealthily brings to fore the damage incurred by indulging an insatiable appetite.

With loads of campiness and a touch of irony, Chin Chih Yang's art invites viewers to become better acquainted with the dark side of human nature and to think outside the box in an effort to find a collective solution to save ourselves and our planet. 

Found, used, and donated objects will concurrently highlight the plenitude in our lives and metaphorically display twisted relationships marked by mutual dependence and conflict.

 

 

Columbia University in the city of New York

The Weatherhead East Asian Institute proudly announces the opening of a contemporary art exhibit, Outside In: New Realms for Taiwan Art , featuring ten artists from Taiwan.

Outside In takes a broad look at what it means to be a Taiwan artist in the art world today. Often driven to urban centers of the United States in order to find recognition for their work, Taiwan artists express their contemporary interests and concerns in a variety of traditional and cutting-edge media. The artists chosen for this particular exhibit deal with a wide range of subject matter including ethnicity, gender, mass consumption, and the environment. Their work, simultaneously innovative and mindful of a collective past, will serve to initiate discussions on Taiwan art in an international setting

Presented in conjunction with the Columbia Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures and Columbia student groups: Asian Pacific Affairs Council, Greater China Initiative , Taiwan Focus, and the Weatherhead Undergraduate Council .

About the artists

Long-Bin Chen

Long-Bin Chen is known for his skillful transformation of out-of-date books, phone books, newspapers, magazines, and computer paper into art that—when viewed from a distance—appears to be made of wood or marble. Chen's work is not only a commentary on human consumption and waste, it also mourns the pre-digital era of bound books. His art approaches the book object as an aesthetic object and attempts to combine ideas and concepts from the East with those from the West. 

Long-Bin Chen was born in Taiwan . He received a BFA from Tung-Hai University in Taiwan and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York . He has exhibited widely in the United States , Germany , Taiwan , Japan , and Hong Kong . His most recent group exhibitions include The Invisible Thread: Buddhist Spirit in Contemporary Art at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center in Staten Island, New York; The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama organized by the Dalai Lama Foundation, a traveling exhibition; and Kidspace at MASS MoCA. He is represented by Frederieke Taylor Gallery in New York , where he had his most recent solo exhibition in 2006.

Wei Jane Chir

Wei Jane Chir has spent almost twenty years living and making art in Europe and America , as well as participating in exhibitions around the world, including in Russia , Germany , Taiwan , and the United States . Her practice encompasses various media and formats including painting, installation, film, and public art. Focusing on inspirations such as culture and social environments, her work is a search for harmony and peace in a world of conflict.

Wei Jane Chir was born in Taiwan. She studied painting and printmaking at San Francisco State University , and then went on to earn a BFA and an MFA from the University of Art in Berlin , Germany . With her unique techniques and strongly individualistic style, Wei Jane Chir's work has won numerous awards, including the Women's Studio Workshop Artist Fellowship, a Vermont Studio Center Fellowship, and a Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation Fellowship from the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. Having recently expanded into filmmaking, her first documentary film, The Legend of Lily Yeh , won the Bronze Plaque and The Chris Award at the 51st Columbus International Film & Video Festival, held in Columbus , Ohio .


Huang Shih Chieh

Huang Shih Chieh merges artificial materials and electronics to create organic living environments. His electronic components include motion sensors, remote control, Basic Stamp 2 computer chips, and rewired music tuners to establish interaction between the viewer and the space. The viewer's movement and their participation with remote controls can alter their surroundings with changes such as blowing wind, inflating plastic tubes and the flow of plastic glowing liquid.

Huang Shih Chieh was born in Taipei , Taiwan , and lives and works in New York . He was a participant in the 52nd International Art Exhibition Venice Biennial, and has exhibited worldwide including at the Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei; the Museum of Contemporary Art Shanghai; the Des Moines Art Center; Tokyo National University of Fine Arts; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Madrid and Burgos, Spain; and the New Museum and the Queens Museum of Art in New York. He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards including the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, the Rockefeller Foundation New Media Arts Fellowship, the Joan Mitchell Foundation Sculpture Award, Vida 9: The Art and Artificial Life International Competition, ArtSpace, and the New York Foundation for the Arts. He holds a BFA from the University of California San Diego and an MFA from School of Visual Arts New York .



Su-Chen Hung

Su-Chen Hung uses a variety of media in both her installations and performances to express this experience of cultural duality between the United States and Taiwan . Although her work can vary from being intensely personal to a broader exploration of cultural and social ideas, the work always begins with a conceptual and visual core. Both her studio work and her large-scale public art projects have a meditative aura, creating spaces of contemplation and repose. Her installations encourage her audience to participate in the work rather than passively view it. 

Su-Chen Hung was born in Kaoshiung , Taiwan and now lives in San Francisco , California . After studying Chinese Literature at Tunghai University in Taiwan , Su-Chen Hung went on to earn a second Bachelor degree in Sociology. She has also earned a BFA in Photography and an MFA in Filmmaking at the San Francisco Art Institute. Hung has exhibited her work in many parts of the world, including the United States , Europe, and Asia . She has received many fellowships and awards including the National Endowment of the Arts Fellowship in New Genre, the National Interdisciplinary Fellowship/Residency from the McKnight Foundation in Minneapolis, the Valley Forward Association's Excellent Art in Public Places “Crescordia” Award in Phoenix, an Artist Fellowship in New Genre by the California Arts Council, and a fellowship/residency from the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California. In 2008, Hung has two solo museum shows scheduled in Taiwan .


Walis Labai (Diing-wuu Wu)

Walis Labai is a member of Taiwan 's Sadik indigenous tribe. While describing his video work, The Invisible Project–A Shadow Tribal People's Life Living , he states: “Within the video art work I am trying to remove the physical shape of indigenous people from the space in which they live, leaving only the shadows in the space. This absence shows an uncomfortable and uneven feeling of existence within the culture. If there are no people left who are able to determine their own cultural heritage and material culture, it will be a disaster to all of human life.”

Walis Labai was born in Nantou , Taiwan where he lives and works. He received his BFA in Physics from the Chinese Cultural University in Taiwan and an MFA in Computer Graphic Design from the Rochester Institute of Design. Walis currently serves as the Chair of the Department of Commercial Design at Chung Yan University and is Associate Professor at the National Don Hua University . His photography, music, film, and other mixed media have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in mainland China , Taiwan , and Korea .



Fang-Yu Lin

Fang-Yu Lin is a New York-based new media artist and designer whose artwork reflects the interplay of human experience, culture and technology. His work From the Great Beyond poses this question: “Is the Internet becoming an entity?” Inspired by Alan Turing's machine intelligence test proposed in his 1950 paper Computing Machinery and Intelligence (also known as the Turing Test), Lin's project attempts to channel this hypothetical entity via a robotic typewriter that allows the audience to engage in conversations—à la a Ouija Board—with the Internet. Through the dialogs, one may discovery the characteristics of this “being.”

Born in Taiwan , Fang-Yu Lin holds a BA from the National Chengchi University , an MS in Information from the University of Michigan , and an MFA in Design & Technology from the Parsons School of Design. His works have been featured in many venues and festivals, including Whitney Artport, Tate Online, Les Rencontres Internationales, Sonar Festival, FILE São Paulo , Seoul New Media Festival, and Bauhaus Dessau. The interactive installation From the Great Beyond also received an Honorary Mention in Prix Ars Electronica. In addition, his works have been published in Net Dot Art , Contemporary Chinese Art Yearbook, and Border Patrol: Artists Working at the Frontiers of Science and Technology .


Marc Lin

Marc Lin was first inspired by digital art when he saw Golan Levin's Audiovisual Environment Suite . He was impressed by the visual and sound effects as well as the interactive relationship between the audience and the art. Beyond a simplistic relationship limited to subject and object, Marc Lin has furthered his discussion on interaction by exploring the realm of social observation and criticism, in line with event-based Fluxus art and with artists such as Nam June Paik. Lin's practice involves the continued discovery of evolving "computer-based cultural elements," which perpetually shape and define the digital aesthetic of new media, and are continuously sculpted by a new lifestyle emerging from the era of digital networking. 

Marc Lin was born in Taiwan and currently resides and works in New York . He received his BA in industrial design from the National Chung Kung University in Taiwan and a MA from Parsons School of Design in Design and Technology, where he studied with artist and composer Golan Levin. Marc Lin's professional background is in product design, in particular bicycle and motorcycle design. Since 2000 he has been working in product design, graphics, and installation, as well as interactive and net-based technology development. Lin's work has been exhibited at the Arnold & Sheila Aronson Gallery and the DUMBO Art Under the Bridge Festival in New York City , the Beijing International New Media Arts Exhibition and Symposium, and CO6 Taiwan Avant-Garde Documenta III.


Lin Shih Pao

Lin Shih Pao's work reflects the most profound concepts of Asian philosophy, namely, a deep sympathy for human beings and an appreciation of the value of the union of humans and nature. His paintings often juxtapose traditional Asian brush ink landscapes with contemporary mixed media constructions, resulting in “post-surreal” landscapes. His installation work is concerned with the urgency of human communication and attempts to provoke his audience to lend a democratic character to his work. 

Lin Shih Pao was born in Taiwan and currently lives and works in New York and Japan . He studied in Japan and then attended graduate school at New York University . He is widely known as the "Penny Artist" after his Penny for Peace (1997) project, in which he collected one million pennies to form a gigantic, three-ton sculpture, which is now permanently displayed at Hiroshima University. He has participated in group exhibitions at the 2005 Expo in Japan as well as the Museum of Modern Art in Saitama , Japan . His most recent solo show was held at the Fukuoka City Art Museum .


Hung-Chih Peng

Hung-Chih Peng's artistic practice—which includes sculpture, photography, drawing, and video—is an exploration of the art and cultural theory of the East and West. A common theme is the artist's use of dog images to which he attaches multiple meanings. Since recognizing their potential in 1997, the artist's work has focused almost solely on dogs as surrogates and symbols. His witty, irreverent work positions the viewer to experience life from a dog's eye view, bringing the absurdity of modern life, human strengths, and foibles into sharp relief.

Hung-Chih Peng was born in Taiwan and works and resides in New York and Taipei . He received his BFA at the National Taiwan Normal University and his MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute. He is the recipient of numerous awards, grants, and artist residencies for his video and photographic work, including the 5th Taishin Art Award from the Taishin Bank Foundation of Arts and Culture; Exhibition Grants from the National Arts and Cultural Foundation, Taiwan; and the Swing Space Award from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. He was recently an artist-residence at the Omi International Artist Residency in New York . Peng's work has also been in exhibitions including the 10th International Istanbul Biennial, the OK Center for Contemporary Art in Austria , and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Shanghai .


Chin Chih Yang

Chin Chih Yang's work addresses society's efforts to protect itself both physically and psychologically against various catastrophes. These include the effects of totalitarianism, surveillance, quarantine, isolation, and the environmental issues surrounding pollution. His 123PolutionSolution project involves 35,000 aluminum cans collected by students and parents from the Tzu Chi Academic School in Cedar Grove , New Jersey , done as a reminder for people “to come up with a plan to save ourselves and our planet”.

Chin Chih Yang received his BFA from the Parsons School of Design and his MS from Pratt Institute in New York . Chin Chih Yang was born in Taipei and lives in New York . He was a 2005 recipient of a Fiscal Sponsorship by the New York Foundation for the Arts and in 1999, received a Gold Medal for Creative Achievement in Photography by Creativity Annual. His art has been exhibited by the Multimedia Interactive Arts Program of the Association for Computing Machinery in Singapore , and the Tribes Gallery located in New York City .
